I got an idea: like there's now /opt/bin in PATH, how about adding /opt/lib to (library search path)?

There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)

Aha, that could be useful curaga ;)
But is there a way you could do it without running ldconfig after?

By coincidence, I just tried this kind of approach whilst trying to move the samba.dsl extension to /opt/samba-2 and didn't have much success. Mikshaw also just mentioned something similar with "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="

It seems that some applications (eg the ones in the hplip extension I'm working on) seem to know that if they start in /opt/app/bin, the libs will be in /opt/app/lib. Other applications (eg the ones in samba.dsl) seem to resist all attempts to tell them where to find libs...

To create a new desktop icon to launch your program, use the dfm menu.

Right click on desktop -> Create -> New program Icon

Enter path to program.

Using this option will create a new icon on the desktop, if you want this in a folder then "move" it by dragging it to such folder.

To select an icon for it, select it and Ctrl-O, or select it and right on it and select options.
