    Downloaded program not accessible

    Hi,

    I recently installed Ubuntu 9.04. It is working fine. I am a photographer so I need a program for my photos. Bibble5 will be my choice, also because they have a Linux version. I downloaded it (a .deb file). Installation went fine. It is listed in the menu Applications-Graphical. However clicking on the icon the program gives no reaction, It will not run.
    If I go the location were the program is installed (Filesystem/opt) it says that I do not have rights for that program.

    Where did I go wrong and what can I do to make it work !!

    Thanks for reading,

    Remmelt

    Re: Downloaded program not accessible

    Try clicking Applications, Accessories, Terminal. Run 'sudo bibble5' and type your password. If it runs, great: Right click Applications, Edit Menus. Find the icon for Bibble5, edit it, and at the beginning of the command include a 'sudo'. If it says something like 'bibble5: command not found' then bibble5 is the wrong command. To know the right one, right click Applications, Edit Menus. Find the icon for Bibble5, click edit, and post the command it runs for us

    Hope what I wrote was understandable to you, if not, post and i (or someone else) will explain better.

    Find the icon for Bibble5, edit it, and at the beginning of the command include a 'sudo'.
    I think the 'sudo' should be a 'gksudo' when used in the graphic environment?

    Re: Downloaded program not accessible

    first, I would test the application. go to Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal and paste in:
    Code:
    gksu <program-name>
    gksu causes the application following it to be run as admin. when you call it, it will prompt you for your password.

    one of two things will happen. either an error message will appear in the terminal, or the application will start.

    if the app starts, just use pedro's instructions to add gksu to the begining of the command for the launcher (shortcut). use gksu instead of sudo though, since sudo is for command line applications.

    if the app doesn;t start, hopefully the error message will provide a clue as to the problem.

    Re: Downloaded program not accessible

    Hi,

    Ok, I got the files but how do I paste them there (I do not understand the line 'The folder is root protected so you'll have to use Run Application to navigate to it, change permissions & paste the new libs.'

    Thanks again,

    Remmelt

    Re: Downloaded program not accessible

    the easiest way is to run a file manager window as admin temporarily.
    hit Alt + F2. and enter
    Code:
    gksu nautilus
    you will be prompted for you password and a window will open.

    navigate to your destination, and simply paste in the files.

    be very careful with the admin window, as you can make destructive changes with it. close it as soon as you are done.
