    How would I make Bible Analzer actually work?

    I have the whole of Bible Analyzer downloaded and have extracted the files and have an icon that looks as if if I click on it then the program would open and I would be able to use it. Unfortunately, what happens is that when I click on it -well it closes the finder thing and nothing else happens.

    Is this like the Open Office thing I have where I have Open Office but can only open it using the terminal and if that is the case, what do I put in the terminal to open Bible analyzer? It is Bible Analyzer 4.5. -Or, do I need to do something iwith Wine?

    (I also still have the whole of Calligra Author on my desktop. )This is NOT Calligra 2.5 which I also have and this remains as a tar gz file and I cannot seem to run that either although I clearly have all the files. If anyone has any ideas about that I would still like to try it.))

    Gosh when those two are sorted I cannot think of another thing I need.




    Thx

    Did you download the .deb file?

    Please, tell us which of these file formats you downloaded?

    http://www.bibleanalyzer.com/download.htm

    If you downloaded this file:

    bibleanalyzer.4.5-5.all.deb then you do not unpack it. You right click it and select Open with Ubuntu Software Centre which will install the program for you and provide an un-install option should you need to remove the program.

    Perhaps you should read this:

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    I did read that one which is why I am confused. Yes .deb files and when I right click on the download it opens Ubuntu Software manager which tells me that the program is installed but when I put bibleanalyzer into the terminal I get
    jacky@jacky-Aspire-6930G:~$ bibleanalyzer

    ************ Starting Bible Analyzer *************
    0.59505200386 before aui import
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/share/bibleanalyzer/analyzer4.py", line 41, in <module>
    import sessionMan
    File "/usr/share/bibleanalyzer/sessionMan.py", line 30, in <module>
    os.mkdir(ur'%s' % homeUserDir)
    OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/jacky/Documents/BibleAnalyzer'

    Press Enter to close terminal

    And then I am back where I started because the program is installed........

    Hm, would it be as simple as running

    Code:
    mkdir ~/Documents/BibleAnalyzer
    It could be it didn't install right- for downloaded .deb files I prefer to use dpkg rather than the software center- in a terminal run

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i package_name
    to install.

    mkdir ~/Documents/BibleAnalyzer comes up as no such file or directory.
