Installed Postfix docs and PostfixAdmin successfully!!! Software manager says so, but neither seem to appear anywhere in selectables - desktop, applications, YAST, etc. Logged on both as root and user but not there for either. Is there a secret place where new apps hang out?
PS used the OneClick install in the main OpenSUSE add-ons area for PostfixAdmin.
An application will appear in the startmenu (whether under KDE, Gnome, Xfce or other freedesktop based window managers) only if this applications’s package includes a .desktop file, which get copied (in most cases) in /usr/share/applications. Many not GUI applications don’t have one and can be started from a terminal only (unless you write a suitable .desktop file yourself).
especially interesting might be the section on software
however Postfix is not a package most users ever get involved with
so i wonder if maybe you are setting up a (mail?) server…and, if so
…well, mail servers don’t need icons, desktops, GUIs etc…those
things just turn company money into heat…
You should be able to access yours at http://localhost/postfixadmin or something. Its files are (iirc) kept in /usr/share/postfixadmin which is added as a virtual directory in apache (your web server) as /postfixadmin.
Postfix is not a gui based program, you won’t get an icon in the menu for any kind of configuration UI.
You can try searching yast for postfix; there is a gui called (i think) postconf. IMHO it’s better to do it properly though, in postfix’s configuration files by hand:
sudo nano /etc/postfix/main.cf
& read the comments in there. google if you don’t understand. And then test your results.
