Can't find program......

Postby Ambrose on Sat Oct 04, 2008 3:51 pm

Just installed LMMS using the package manager but I can't find it anywhere on the system. I assumed it would appear in the menus accessed from the Elyssa 'start' button but its not there. Tried to find it searching file system again found a folder called lmms but no way to start the programme. Help......

Try right clicking on the menu and choose "Refresh Plugins". If that does not work, open the terminal and type the application name and press enter.

If you can get it to launch a shortcut can be created if needed.

Did the reload plugins process, still did not appear in any menus. Typed LMMS in terminal.

Terminal gave this message 'could not set realtime priority'.

Still non the wiser, please help.

If you installed it properly I would try Super+Space bar to launch Gnome-Do (Super = Windows Key) and type in LMMS and see if it can find anything.

sup, remember that linux is case-sensitive so you have to write, "lmms" instead of "LMMS"

If you wan't to put it in your Main Menu, go to:

Preferences>Main Menu

Once there, click on "Sound & Video" in the menu to your left and click "New Item"

The name and the the comment are optional (I believe) and type "lmms" in the "command" box

If you see the icon come up, it means it is the right command and that it has been installed

Add visibility (if not already visible) and you should be done.

Hope I was helpful, cheers!
