Linux user access to packages...

Hi,

I'm now playing with my RH Linux 7.3 installation on my laptop. I've installed the StarOffice suite from root login.

Now my problem:

I created a user account "vishnu".. but I cannot see the StarOffice in the menu listing of this user. How can I give "vishnu" the access to StarOffice that I installed as root.

I tried to read the documentation for setting up access rights to programs. But I couldn't get how can I make the menu item show on the "start" menu list of a user I want to give access to.

I really appreciate your time.

Thank you!
Vishnu.

Do you want to add to KDE, Gnome, Bluecurve, or some other window manager?

Thank you LivinFree!

I want to add the StarOffice menu item to the KDE window manager for the user "vishnu".

While installing as root, incidentally my gui was KDE, so am I restricted to give KDE access of StarOffice to "vishnu"?

Thank you!
Vishnu.

I'll have to look later on to see if I remember how to add menu items in KDE.

For the other question, I'm not sure... You should be able to run in either, but no guarantees...

If you completed a "network" install of StarOffice, the user that requires it simply needs to run the setup program and it will configure all needed folders as well as the KDE / Gnome menu shortcuts!
