Package or program Name

Post#1 by Jack » 28 Jan 2016, 21:27

I'm using Porteus 3.1 Mate 64bit. Can anyone help me? What I want is the package or program name for these applications.

Under the Accessories area they are.

Break reminder
Find Files and Directories
Search for Files

Under the Internet area it is.


Under the Universal Access area it is.

Florence Virtual Keyboard

There will be more in the System area if I can't seem to fine them.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

If you look in /usr/share/applications, you'll find .desktop files, these will show you which application is linked to the menu entry.

You can also check /var/log/packages if you know the application name. It will take some searching, but the info is there.

Polyglot is mine.
Find and Search are part of the base system i think.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
