Ok, so I've installed Fink and downloaded a binary. Now how do I run it?
I guess you have installed the binary as well? Not only downloaded it...
Then open 'Terminal.app' and type the binary name -> Enter.
It's installed, but I just get "~bash: x-scorch: command not found".
There should be a "FinkCommander" app in there somewhere. I think it doesn't install itself along with the actual Fink files, so you might have to copy it to your applications folder manually.
I used FinkCommander to install the app originally, but there doesn't seem to be any place to launch it there either.
OK, it's sort-of working now (I had the package name wrong), but now I'm getting another error ("Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: ").
EDIT: Am I supposed to be opening this through X11? Because I get the unknown command error there, but not through Terminal.
Any GTK errors mean you need to run it from X11. The software should be installed in /sw/bin not in /Applications.
If it runs from Terminal but not X11, prepend /sw/bin in front of it:
Thanks, that did the trick.
EDIT: Any way to set it up so that I don't have to type in the full path?
