    fluxus

    Ok, so bear with me as I'm rather a noob. I had Ubuntu 8.04, and i then installed the ubuntu studio packages over that. everything went fine.

    Just tonight i downloaded a fluxus package, and installed it, and it installed correctly.

    But how the hell do i open it? I can't find it anywhere, and I can't find any help on the web. can someone help me track it down and figure out what i'm missing?

    By Fluxus I'm assuming you mean this: http://www.pawfal.org/fluxus/

    So welcome fellow livecoder! (I'm a beginner chuckist myself)

    A lot of the small applications that aren't in Ubuntu's regular repositories will not appear in your application menu (it's up to the package creator to put it there - not the system). So to start these programs you simply need to open a terminal and type in the program name (by doing this, the system will look for an executable in the /usr/bin file - where any successful installation should put the executable).

    You could also create a launcher as described here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToAddaLauncher but I'd assume a program like fluxus would be controlled via the terminal anyways, so it's less clutter to look at if you just manually start it.
    What makes a great open source contributor is not primarily the brilliance of their ideas or importance of their bug, but rather their willingness to see it through to success.
