I installed mendeley desktop via this link. It installed properly and works fine when I open it from the gui menu.
However, I can't run it from terminal:
kp@kk:~$ mendeleydesktop mendeleydesktop: command not found kp@kk:~$
I located the software
kp@kk:~$ locate mendeleydesktop |grep /home /home/kp/.local/share/mendeleydesktop /home/kp/.local/share/applications/mendeleydesktop.desktop
The first item above seems like a link to a different directory, but I'm confused because I can't actually locate this file.
kp@kk:~/.local/share$ ls -al mendeleydesktop lrwxrwxrwx 1 kp kp 30 Nov 19 17:38 mendeleydesktop -> /app/extra/bin/mendeleydesktop
The second item is just a file:
kp@kk:~/.local/share/applications$ cat mendeleydesktop.desktop [Desktop Entry] Name=Mendeley Desktop GenericName=Research Paper Manager Comment=Mendeley Desktop is software for managing and sharing research papers Exec=/home/kp/.local/share/mendeleydesktop %f Icon=mendeleydesktop Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Education;Literature;Qt; X-SuSE-translate=false MimeType=x-scheme-handler/mendeley;application/pdf;text/x-bibtex; X-Mendeley-Version=1
Any idea where I can find the executable? I just want to be able to type
mendeleydesktop and get mendeley to open. This is the only piece of my workflow I can't control from the terminal. I assume if I find the right object I can just make a link in my bashrc file.
