I have downloaded it via synaptic.
Not to confuse you further silverbirch
, which Virtualbox did you install?
There are 2 versions - the OSE (Open Source Edition) version that installs using Synaptic in the regular way.
The second method is using the "getvirtualbox
" script - which is again downloaded in the usual way from Synaptic, BUT, with the "getvirtualbox
" version you then have to run the getvirtualbox script to actually install it.
script works in a very similar way to GetOpenOffice - it pulls all the necessary files down and installs it for you.
one is whats known as the PUEL (Personal Use and Evaluation License) version and I believe is the one most user's install.
To run the getvirtualbox
version (once it's been installed from Synaptic) go to your main KMenu >> More Applications >> Emulators >
and run it from there. Give it some time - you'll see a Message Window running - and when it's all finished you'll then have a second entry in the More Applications >> Emulators >
menu from where you can run Virtualbox.
If any of that is unclear
please post back.
