Were Are Programs Installed To?

Recommended Posts

I can't find where my programs are installed to... i was using someone linux stuff page and the command line tut said they are usually in usr/bin or bin but they arn't. Im trying to install a plugin for GAIM. Is there a way to find target to it from a shortcut like windows? Or a search function?

Do i need all the --with and that stuff?  because with and without those it still doesnt work...


Yes, I tested it on my Ubuntu VM. The with-gaim tells it where to install the plugin. Are you getting an error running ./configure? I needed to install gaim-dev to get it to work, try:

sudo apt-get install gaim-dev

before ./configure.
