    Default Installing and opening new applications


    Hey there,
    i am brand new to opensuse. (dual booting with ubuntu) anyways, i was
    wondering after you install new software via the yast software manager,
    where to go to locate it? i checked the application browser, and could
    not find what i was looking for. i tried with wine, and then a much
    simpler game; then re installed both just to make sure there weren't any
    mistakes. so can anyone help out?

    This is one of my top pet peeves about Linux, by the way, and very
    nearly drove me away from it when I first switched to it several years
    ago. What would be so difficult about a distro-specific RPM (or other
    package type, for that matter) displaying a "finished!" message that
    included the simple line, "the main program executable is
    /usr/bin/new_prog" or something like that? Better yet, if an icon has
    been placed in the GUI's menu, saying "you'll find it under K-Menu(or
    whatever)->Applications->Stuff_That_Stinks"?

    You can go back into Yast, open Software management and search for the
    package again. Click the package, then select "file list" at the lower
    right of the window. Suse does highlight the executable(s) name(s) for
    you in that list.
