OSCAR: installation issue with Ubuntu, workaround
OSCAR: installation issue with Ubuntu, workaround
First of all thanks to all the people involved in providing this amazing package.
I use Ubuntu, two different versions (18.04 and 19.10). I didn't manage to install it with dpkg with either, but had success with Ubuntu's Software Central,. After install it wasn't running, though. I managed to get it going in a few steps:
First, locate the OSCAR.desktop file (it's under /opt/OSCAR if I'm not mistaken - I'm posting from my phone), open a terminal and type the following:
sudo chown $USER:$USER OSCAR.desktop
And make sure it is executable:
sudo chmod +x OSCAR.desktop
Close the terminal and open the file manager, right click on the .desktop file and click on the "make trusted" (or similar) option, now it should be possible to run the program double clicking on the .desktop file. If that doesn't work, however, pressing Alt-F2 and typing OSCAR (don't forget the capitals) and then hitting Enter should work. After that initial run the icon for the program should show when the system ("Windows") key is pressed, or when the correspondent area in the dashboard is clicked.
I hope thos helps other Ubuntu users.
