    installing IronAHK


    First off, I've only been using Linux for a few days, so I apologize if these questions have relatively obvious answers

    Anyways, I was trying to install IronAHK, but I ran into some issues during the install. Prior to this, I had only installed software using the software manager, so I was using the install guide on these forums for guidance.

    On the IronAHK site, I downloaded the binaries. Following the guide, I did:
    su
    sh setup.sh install

    it said installation complete

    So my questions is...now what? There's probably a simple answer to this, but I confess that I'm lost as to what to do next. IronAHK doesn't show up in my applications.

    Hello and Welcome!

    Doing a manual install of software will not always add it to the App menu. It depends on the software in question.
    You can usually add it to the menu yourself, though.
    What Desktop are you using? Gnome? KDE? Unity?

    Also, you should be able to launch it from the command line.

    How do I run it from the command line?
    I tried just doing
    IronAHK

    How do I add it to the app list?

    Also, where are apps installed to? What directory I mean.

    thanks for the help by the way

    Haven't run Gnome in a while... so I'm gonna shoot from memory.
    You should be able to look at a Menu Preference or something similar to 'Add to...'
    And since I'm not familiar with the IronAHK software, I can only offer tips on launching from the CLI:
    Code:
    Iron->[Tab key]
    or
    iron->[Tab key]
