SOLVED Can't start programme installed from Trinity repo

Postby fraxinus_63 on Tue Jan 22, 2013 7:19 am

I am running LM13 MATE 32-bit and it is great. However, I am very keen to run an old KDE3 app (Quanta Plus) which is no longer available in the Ubuntu Precise repos.

My aim has been to add this app and its dependencies using the Trinity Desktop Environment repos - indeed, I am sure I have seen posts on the forum saying that this is possible.

So, I have added the Trinity repos and signing key using the instructions for Precise at http://www.trinitydesktop.org/wiki/bin/ ... stallation

I reloaded Synaptic - and Quanta-trinity appears! I mark it for installation, and all seems to go well.

But how do I launch it? It doesn't appear in the menu. I have looked for it in usr/bin but cannot see it. I have attempted to launch it from the terminal using a variety of likely commands, but nothing happens.

Any suggestions welcome! Thanks in anticipation.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Sorry to bump this topic. Does anyone know how I can resolve this, or troubleshoot it further?

Solved this, with the help of the Linux Format forum.

It seems that Trinity installs programmes in /opt. I created a launcher for /opt/trinity/bin/quanta - and I can launch Quanta Plus. I am delighted.
