    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:

    Regards.

    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

    import sessionMan

    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.

    that also came up with no such file or directory....I moved it to home and reinstalled as I discovered I did have the dpkg thing and it reappears on the dashboard but again, when I click on the icon, it just closes the dash board. And again from the terminal:

    This suggests that you don't actually have a ~/Documents folder. Try:

    Code:
    mkdir -p ~/Documents/BibleAnalyzer

    'package_name' should reference the .deb file. So, if the .deb file is in your current directory, you would type:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i bibleanalyzer.4.5-5.all.deb
    That will only work if the .deb file is in your current directory, though. If it is elsewhere, you will have to change into the directory where it is or provide the path to the .deb file.
