I've been playing around with running different distros of Linux in VirtualBox on my iMac (OS 10.7.3). This is the first time I've used Linux so I basically don't know what I'm doing, and am learning as I go (googling stuff constantly.) Please keep this in mind when answering - I want to learn, but don't assume I know anything already!
Currently I'm running Xubuntu 13.04 in VirtualBox, and I wanted to be able to customize the theme a bit more, so I downloaded 'Appearance' and 'Unity Tweak Tool' from the themes and tweaks tab of the software centre.
The problem is, they haven't turned up in the App Menu or App Finder. The apps ARE showing up in the 'installed' tab of the software centre, but you don't seem to be able to launch them from there, so the only way I can launch them is in Terminal.
After finally discovering the files in
/var/cache/apt/archives, I typed the path
/var/cache/apt/archives/[filename] into terminal and hit enter. It said
no such file or directory found. Did I do something wrong? Is there any other way around this issue of apps not showing in the app menu?
