Running things in Linux ???

How can I run my Qwsv file just by writing qwsv in the
catalog. Linux say's that it isn't a command. BUT when I use
Mc (Midnight Commander) it is a command (green and got a *)
and I can run it and it works. I had this problem with an earlier linux installation, but a guy at a Lan fixed it
for me. And I cant remember how! I am running the newest S.u.S.E.

You would run that file by this way:
your Forder ]$./qwsv
or you can creat symbolic link so you only have to type qwsv to run that program.Firstly you would need to specify the forder which contains that program and logging as root then you would type: #ln -s /home/yourname/your forder/qwsv qwsv

You don't have the executable path in the PATH environment variable. Linux (or any unix) NEVER looks in directory "." for executables, this is a BAD THING (TM). Under bash you can look at PATH by executing "echo $PATH" and you set it with "export PATH=/dir:/dir/dir:/anotherdir".

Good luck
