Terminal not responding properly OpenSuse 11.4 ?


Treeline is a free form database program. I'm trying to install it in Linux - OpenSuse 11.4. I'm wondering if I either have a bad install of OpenSuse 11.4, or am not using the correct commands to change to Treeline.

As you can see from the image attached, terminal does not recognize that the various folders exist, or that I'm not changing to them properly.

( the 500 Gig drive in the image attached is another drive, I've installed OpenSuse on a 150 Gig drive, using all defaults )

Please, what can you tell me . . . . .
Thanks for you kind assistance.

I don't think your picture got attached. Try again.

Without knowing which folders this is happening to, I would hazard that either a) you are not using the terminal properly, or b) the folders you are trying to access do not really exist (for example, they are in an archive that your file manager presents to you as a folder).

Please re-attach the picture, as it did not post properly. If it will not work, then you can copy and paste the command and error(s) you are getting from your terminal and any other pertinent information.

How, exactly, are you trying to install this program? there are various ways to install a program on linux, and without knowing the method you are trying to use, it is hard to give and advise.

If you downloaded a source file, and want to ./configure && make && make install, make sure you extracted the archive most source packages come in a .tar.gz or tar.bz2 archive which must first be extracted before they can be installed.

How did you install it - did you use the package manager?

Can only guess what this might mean: I would also guess that you have to make a minimum number of posts before you post attachments, and your attachment is getting caught by that requirement.

Status: not installed
Installed Size: 3.5 MiB
Summary: Versatile Tree-Style Outliner for Defining Custom Data Schemas
Description: 
TreeLine is a versatile tool for working with all kinds of information
that fit into a tree-like structure.
It can be used to edit bookmark files, create mini-databases (for
example, for addresses, tasks, records, or CDs), outline documents, or
just collect ideas. It can also be used as a generic editor for XML
files.
The data schemas for any node in the data tree can be customized and
new types of nodes can be defined. The way data is presented on the
screen, exported to HTML, or printed can be defined with HTML-like
templates. Plug-ins can be written to load and save data from and to
custom file formats or external data sources and extend the
functionality of TreeLine.
TreeLine is written in Python and uses the PyQt bindings to the Qt
toolkit, which makes it very portable.
seeing as it is in the default " oss "

install it this way
undo what ever it is you did with the tarball
Code:

zypper in treeline

Thank you one and all for your quick and kind help. I did manage to get the thing installed. As to why the image I attached did not appear on this site, I don't know. Maybe its as one person said, there are first a required minimum number of posts required, if so, that is certainly not helpful to newbies like me.

Yes, but apparently these days, it is a necessary measure to stop the server being flooded with image spam.
