I'm wondering if there is a way to tell what commends I should use to run a pkg I install, or a dir where I can go to investigate...I ask because, although most pkgs can be run simply by using their name (ie., pacman-2.6-1.pkg.tar.gz is run by typing "pacman" after it is installed), but some aren't, and I haven't able to run some pkgs that I've installed because even after install I see no message indicating how to get the thing running...
I had this problem with rockdodger (I think) and yesterday, after installing OOo and running the initial config program, I forgot how to run the programs...so, I can't open OOo!
Ooops! If anyone could clue me in to a way to figure this out (even if it is right under my nose), it would be greatly appreciated!
Well mainly you can do the following command:
pacman -Ql packagename
which means pacman will do a query for the file list of a certain package, and from what it outputs, you should be able to deduce what it is to run the program itself.
