I split off your last post in the hope someone might have an answer - but no, so I gave an answer myself in

I forgot to add a note about it before

I have no idea how though... i just thought to myself the other day. Wipe everything apart from the actual install files then follow the binary distribution instructions. I have no idea how i didn't get this right the first time!

This was my procedure for installations with no deb or rpm file.
Code: Select all
Install it (in /usr/local/balsa for example):
   cd /usr/local
    [u]sudo[/u] tar xjf balsa-3.5-full-<arch>.tar.bz2

Add these definitions to your shell configurations in /usr/profile for everyone:
   PATH=/usr/local/balsa/bin:${PATH}
   LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/balsa/lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
   export PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH
The following environment variables might also be needed (change /usr/local/balsa to your chosen installation directory):
   export BALSAHOME=/usr/local/balsa
   export WAVE_SHARE_DIR=/usr/local/balsa/share/gtkwave
   export WAVE_READER_PATH=/usr/local/balsa/lib/gtkwave


the ctrl-alt-backspace to re-load everything!

I hope this helps someone else!
next i will try wit my bluetooth headset
