How do I access and activate the Imprudence download in Linux Mandriva

0 like 0 dislike
I downloaded Imp 1.3.2. to my Linux/ Mandriva 2010.2 system. Now it sits in my Download file with no .EXE file to set it up. It's unpacked and files can be read. I'm new to Linux

After you unpack the .tar.bz2 file you downloaded, there should be a directory called either Imprudence-1.3.2b-Linux-x86 or Imprudence-1.3.2-Linux-x86_64, depending on whether you downloaded the 32-bit Linux version or the 64-bit Linux version.

Inside that directory will be a file called just imprudence. That's the file you should run. Linux typically doesn't use the .EXE file extension for its programs. :)

No installation required: Unpacking is really all that's needed for Imprudence on Linux. The viewer binary (the actual viewer, not an installation program) is located at bin/do-not-directly-run-imprudence-bin. As the name indicates, you should not run that directly, unless you know exactly what you're doing. Instead, as Jacek already told, run the shell script called imprudence, which will set up some stuff and then call the binary for you.

I don't know about Mandriva specifically, but on most Linux distributions, you should be able to run the imprudence script by double-clicking it. (You might be asked whether to run it in a terminal, run it without a terminal or edit it. Any of the two 'run' options is fine.) You can also manually start a terminal window (e.g. xterm, gnome-terminal or Konsole) and start it from there by changing into the unpacked imprudence directory (with cd) and then typing
