Lifelines (SOLVED)

Hi guys

I’ve just installed lifelines (a genealogy program) which seemed to install ok but I can’t find it in the menu nor can I get it to open from the terminal I’ve tried lifelines, Lifelines & LifeLines each time I get “no file or directory” also I’ve checked the filesystem and I can’t see any reference to it in /bin or /usr/bin, I’ve un-installed and re-installed but still no luck

any help would be much appreciated

Graeme

You could search for it:

sudo updatedb

then

locate life

Try different variations on life

Thanks SeZo

Still can’t run Lifelines but here’s the output

Have you tried to run in Terminal:
llines
or
/usr/lib/lifelines/llines

According this that is the command to start with GUI interface

Have you tried to run in Terminal:

No I haven’t but having read your link that’s clearly what I’m doing wrong, I’m not at that PC right now but I’ll try that when I get home and post back

Many thanks

Graeme

Yeah you got it SeZo

llines opens it up

I don’t know how you found that page I searched and couldn’t find anything relevant

must try harder :slight_smile:

Many thanks

Graeme
