/usr/bin/ymessenger

You can type that on a comand line, or you can create an icon pointing at this in Gnome or KDE, if you prefer.

u can search where the ymessenger is placed if u dont find it .. first try this out

whereis ymessenger

if it dont works try out this ..

find / ymessenger | grep ymessenger

this command will take some time as it will search all files on the root directory. if it shows the path for ymessenger u can stop it from searching further by using control+c [^C] keys.

after its shows the path for the messenger typr the full path of it on the prompt..

Note that "whereis" will only search on your default path, unless you specify additional places to search.

Better to use:

locate ymessenger
or
locate ymessenger|more

locate searches an updated index of your whole drive.

But since you're installing from Yahoo's rpm without adding any  extra options to -i, ymessenger will be in /usr/bin in any case.

Hi david_ex,

After you install the rpm, you can check what files had been installed via this command :

     rpm -ql ymessenger

Usually execution files will locate under /usr/bin /usr/sbin /usr/local/bin /usr/local/sbin.

That's the exact same answer I gave you in February.  Why didn't you award the points to me, david_ex?
