running a program
Hi all,

I downloaded and installed a program named solar. All the files were downloaded to the Desktop directory. I moved all of the files to a work file in the Documents directory to clean up my Desktop and now the program won't run.

I keep getting the following error when i try to run the program:

The directory /home/oem/Desktop/bin for solar binaries is not accessible

any ideas?

Thanks for any help

Sounds like you installed it to the desktop and then moved it..

Guess you need to run the install script from the location you moved it to..

edit the shortcut to your file to point to where you moved it to
