you will need to add the path of the executable to your shells enviornment path.

or cd to the directory where xine is and type " ./xine "

I cannot see how you properly installed it if you are this new to Linux.
Perhaps it has excellent Documentation.

Hehe. I'm not that new to Linux
I can understand why you thought that, cause I just wrote what I wrote. But I was in a hurry and didn't write the error.

I run /usr/local/share/xine/desktop and get the error:
Failed to execute childprocess (No such File or Directory).

Is this the file to start the program?
I can't find the executable source. When I run locate xine.

Anyone who know where it's supposed to be?
