Kopete issues


OK, I have the old Kopete and it always rejects my MSN name, and I know I have to upgrade it. Now, I have downloaded the latest one and I extracted the folder. Now, I have troubles installing it. First, I tried to google it, but in vain. I found this forum and followed GameGuru's directions, but this is what I get in first line:

lhuser@linux:~> tar -xvjf kopete-0.10.1.tar.bz2
tar: kopete-0.10.1.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors



What's wrong?

you need to use cd to change to the directory where you downloaded kopote to.
also wait at least 24 hours before bumping.

Use the Cd to change the directory....oh, you'll have to explain a little more on that. I don't well understand, soory.


Sorry for bumping too fast. It won't happen again.

What I believe he means is changing the directory to the kopete folder, like you would change the directory in Windows, if you use that.
Command for that is pretty much the same as windows when changing directories.

"cd.." is one down
and "cd (folder name) will bring you into that folder.

another command you might want if you arent used to command line is dir.
it will tell you what folders are in the current directory. Then take the folder you want and use cd to enter it.

You must be knowing where you have downloaded the Kopete Tarball.

What you have to do is cd (change directory) to the place you have downloaded Kopete.

Using the cd command is simple.

Code:
user@computer$ cd /directorytowhichyouhavedownloadedkopete/

For example, if I have it in my /home/user directory,


Code:
user@computer$ cd /home/user/kopete
Note here that I have the Kopete Tarball in the folder called KOpete.
The Linux Shell supports Tab completing mechanism.
So, just press tab, and it will tell you all possible options you can enter.

You said you know the procedure to extract and install the Tarball in your very first post.

But for extracting, you need to change the current shell directory to the directory where you have downloaded kopete.


Code:
user@computer$ cd /home/user/Desktop/kopete
If you have put the Kopete tarball on your desktop,

Code:
 
user@computer$ cd /home/user/Desktop
should be enough.

Then run the command --


Code:
user@computer$ tar -xvjf kopete-0.10.1.tar.bz
