10th May 2006, 04:04 PM
I don't hav Linux very long, so I have 2 probable silly questions:
1. Where do I put Java-Programms to? I mean where to "install" Jar-files so that I can start them in the Terminal
2.How to write French acccents (,`,^) on a letter, using an German/Englisch kepad.

You said you are new to Linux?
Ony trying to provide you with some basic information since, some if not most of your questions that you have asked could have been answered by reading either the Release Notes (for example how-to edit your gnome-panel http://www.fedorafaq.org/#editmenus )and the links that were provided above. :)

To install your program just put it in your /home/username directory and run the installation script. Provided there are no version conflicts your should be good to go.
Then if you want to run the program from the terminal just open a terminal and cd to the install directory and run the script. Or you can run it from your gnome desktop by right cklicking on the the panel and select add to panel and then select Run Application and choose the application you want.

If you are using Open Office to type your letter then there are other language packs that you can install? You can also change your keyboard preference, with System / Preferences / Keyboard.

Well, sorry I think you dissunderstand, (my faut :( ) I'm not realy new to Linux, only compared to others, and I know how to intall software normally.
My question is:
I have made an Java-Programm, which you can start which:

java -jar filename.jar
It is only this one File you need.
So I want to know were to put this file and an selfwiten script (named filename), which is starting the above-mentioned code. So that I can run it with filename.

Put it anywhere in the output of:
echo $PATH
The best place is probably ~/bin.
