SOLVED Can't run installed program called uberwriter!?

Postby carlos123 on Thu Jan 17, 2013 9:48 pm

Hi there,

I successfully installed a program called uberwriter but can't run it by typing "uberwriter" at a command prompt like I can do with all other programs that I have ever installed.

Does anyone know how to launch this program?

It's not showing up in any of the Linux Mint menus either.

But I can see the directories into which it was installed and sudo-apt installing it showed it being installed like usual.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have spent over an hour trying to figure out how to start this program!

Carlos

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just tested it and it gets installed in a weird way. It's located in the /opt/extras.ubuntu.com folder. The command to launch it is :

Code: Select all
/opt/extras.ubuntu.com/uberwriter/bin/uberwriter

Thank you! Thank you!

I tried something like that but apparently I had the wrong path in my attempt and it never ran. Now I can try and see if I at least want to use this Markdown editor. I have heard great things about it.

Thanks again! Much appreciated.
