Sorry for my vagueness before, yes I'm on Mandriva LE, the one released in 05. I played with the console a bit but it did not help really.

I was trying to run BitTorrent, but I have also tried to run firefox, opera, and a few other things all with similar results. Instead of running the file, a program, KWrite will come up and look at the coding of the file and provide me with all these great options for playing with the code, as if that was what I wanted to do. Basically what I want is for KWrite to NOT open these files, but for them to just run.

But programs that came installed with Mandriva, like the old version of firefox, kbear, etc. etc. are running fine.

Thanks very much for the help.

Hey, this is my first experience with Linux so forgive me for my basic question. But it is still really bugging me and I think I ought to already know how to solve it. I have Linux LE, and have installed a few programs. When I attempt to run the progrum, Kwrite comes up, showing me the coding that makes up the program, instead of letting me actually run it.

What am I supposed to do?

thanks in advance
