I've just installed the RPM of Qtopia Desktop v1.7 on my Red Hat 9 box. The command

CODE
rpm -qa | grep qtopia


tells me the package is installed, but if I enter "qtopia-desktop" or "qtopiadesktop" at the terminal, the system tells me there is no such command. Also, there is no QD item in the launcher menu of my GNOME desktop, though I wasn't really expecting one sad.gif

Sorry if I'm being slow, but if QD really is installed on here, how do I (a) check if it is, and (cool.gif run it?

Ironic - most people get problems with QD after they get it running :roll:

Many thanks!

This will tell you where Qtopia Desktop installed its files:
CODE
rpm -ql qtopia-desktop

Did it place the executable in your PATH?
CODE
echo $PATH

If not, edit /etc/profile or your own .bash_profile to include the directory with the qtopia-desktop executable in the PATH.

You will probably find it here:
/opt/Qtopia/bin/qtopiadesktop
