    How to work terminal downloads

    I just downloaded this code to get Freewins for my computer...

    sudo apt-get install compiz-bcop compiz-dev build-essential libxcomposite-dev libpng12-dev libsm-dev libxrandr-dev libxdamage-dev libxinerama-dev libstartup-notification0-dev libgconf2-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libmetacity-dev librsvg2-dev libdbus-1-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libgnome-desktop-dev libgnome-window-settings-dev gitweb curl autoconf automake automake1.9 libtool intltool libxslt1-dev xsltproc
    wget -O /tmp/freewins.zip http://smspillaz.googlepages.com/freewins-0.3-0.6.zip
    mkdir -p ~/compiz/ && cd ~/compiz
    unzip /tmp/freewins.zip
    cd ~/compiz/freewins-0.3-0.6
    make clean
    make
    make install

    and I downloaded and installed something that was 120MB and now i cant find it. Can anybody help me and tell me where to look after I have downloaded a file...where can i find it?

    The stuff you posted indicates it was saved to /tmp/

    hope you haven't rebooted since then....

    Re: How to work terminal downloads

    I believe everything should be in ~/compiz/freewins

    that script should have installed freewins for you , i would fire up compiz and see if the files have been added... not sure if u already had compiz, try
    Code:
    compiz
    in the terminal or
    Code:
    ccsm
    if you have the manager already


    you will need the compiz manager to control these effects type in terminal
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

    What do ya suppose this means?

    Code:
    unzip /tmp/freewins.zip
    Paying special attention to the /tmp part...
