    Default Install applications

    I have installed BT4 on my harddrive and it works fine. But when I try to install an applicatoin such as Open Office it encounter the following problem:
    if I install it through System>Add/Remove Applications-Package Manager it installs fine but when I try to find it in the K Menu > All Applications I can't find it. (there is no Office map)

    How can I install applications?

    Not all applications that you install create a menu entry. You'll have to manually add them yourself or start them from a terminal.

    To find what packages are installed -- dpkg --list

    To find files, programs, etc. type: man find or man which or use Konqueror to locate the program/s that you have installed and then add them to your menu by right-clicking on the dragon (or K icon) and selecting menu editor. You may want to search google on editing menus under KDE so you know the proper command to issue for starting the program, working directory if need be, etc..
    I may have been born with a silver spoon in my mouth but it does not mean I like to be spoon fed.
