    Installation Question

    I'm trying to learn how to install applications with apt-get. I read about Beagle and decided to install it.
    I did the install and got no errors.
    But now I find no icon anywhere to launch it from. I found a Beable folder in /etc but only stared stupidly.

    Synaptic package manager shows that it's installed too. How do I launch it?

    Open an xterminal (Which you most likely used to type in apt-get) and try to launch the application by name, in this case beable.

    If that works, you could make a "shortcut" type thing on your desktop. Are you using Ubuntu by chance?

    That doesn't do anything either.

    no Beable

    I tried the same thing on a Dell laptop that has Ubuntu. It installs Beagle with no errors but there is no start up icon and typing Beagle in the terminal give this:

    No command 'beagle' found, did you mean:
    Command 'eagle' from package 'eagle' (multiverse)
    Command 'beagled' from package 'beagle' (universe)
    beagle: command not found

    Well I'm not really sure what beagle does, but it looks like the main directory is in /usr/share/ if you open a web browser and in the location bar copy and past this path

    "file:////usr/share/beagle/webinterface/help.html"

    without the quotes it will open a help page.

    Hope this helps
