trying to use sms tools cannot start!

I am using ubuntu linux.

Have just installed smstools and trying to get it to run.
I used adept_manager which installs all packages required.

This is the URL on how to run the software.

To start is says I should type this command:

/etc/init.d/sms3 start 
-su: /etc/init.d/sms3: No such file or directory
Then i tried these.

root@enzo-desktop:/# /etc/init.d/smstools
Usage: /etc/init.d/smsd {start|stop|force-stop|reload|force-reload|restart}
root@enzo-desktop:/# /etc/init.d/smsd start
-su: /etc/init.d/smsd: No such file or directory
root@enzo-desktop:/# /etc/init.d/smsd {start}
-su: /etc/init.d/smsd: No such file or directory
then this:

root@enzo-desktop:/# locate sms3
Then this
root@enzo-desktop:/# sudo /usr/share/doc/smstools/examples/scripts/sms3 start
sudo: unable to resolve host enzo-desktop
sudo: /usr/share/doc/smstools/examples/scripts/sms3: command not found
So whats up with this program? How do I get it to run?

Try this

Should work.
