Question Start KcmPureFTPd GUI

First i must mention that I have installed linux yesterday and i have never done something with it before.
I have a question about starting the KcmPureFTPd 0.9.1 GUI - due the installation no errors are shown. The server works fine, but i don't know how to start the KcmPureFTPd 0.9.1 graphical user interface.
I'm using SUSE Linux 9.0.

Thank you very much!
(Sorry for my bad english!)

Thumbs up finaly

download this:

kcmpureftpd is not a standalone prog, it is a extension in "Control Center" -> "Sistem Administration" -> "PureFTPd".

I had similar difficulties when trying to install kcmpureftpd on Suse 9.1. This is my first time trying out Suse. After some investigation I discovered that by default Suse installs KDE in /opt/kde3 instead of /usr/local/kde. Similarly QT is placed in /usr/lib/qt3. To compensate for this I downloaded the source and used "./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt3" instead of just "./configure".

Step by Step
1. Download kcmpureftpd-0.9.1.tar.gz (or whatever the current version is) and move it to an appropriate directory to build.
2. Open a terminal window and switch to the root user with the command "su -" (yes that is a minus sign, it modifies how you switch users)
3. Issue "cd /path/install_directory" to change to the directory you copied the source tarball. (Use the appropriate path of course)
4. Issue "tar -xzvf kcmpureftpd-0.9.1.tar.gz" to extract the source.
5. Issue "cd kcmpureftpd-0.9.1" to change to the source directory.
6. Issue "./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt3 > kcmpureftpd-0.9.1_configure.log" to prepare the build. (using "> kcmpureftpd-0.9.1_configure.log" redirects the output into a file)
7. Issue "make > kcmpureftpd-0.9.1_make.log"
8. Issue "make install > kcmpureftpd-0.9.1_make_install.log"
9. Issue "make clean"
10. Store your log files in a safe place. Enjoy!
