Default installing ports
Hello,

I`m confused how to install ports in PC-BSD 8.2 DVD. in the terminal under root if i change into the directory /usr/ports/multimedia/acidrip and type make install clean.

If you ran "make install clean" and everything worked, then the program should be installed on your system. From there it should be as easy as finding the program in the application menu or typing the name of the program from the command like. Like this

cd /usr/ports/multimedia/acidrip
make install clean
acidrip

@ozuser:
Yes, the procedure is the same. The ports system will take care of dependencies, if your port has configuration options you will be prompted to check/uncheck them and it will continue. Very efficient and well thought out system, you will like it.
One more thing: when building a port, the sources are downloaded from repositories to /usr/ports/distfiles, if you don't want them anymore (recover some disk space) just issue an extra
Code:
make distclean
or even better
Code:
make install clean distclean
Good luck and enjoy the *BSD way

flatdog, ok cheers for that. i have now installed a couple of programs but i don`t see them in the Aplication Launcher.

So what i have done is searched for the program in /usr/local/bin, then i went to the desktop and right clicked and created new link to aplication.

Typed in the name of the program where it says Link to Application, and then clicked on the Aplication tab and browsed for the program where it is installed and changed the icon.

I do like the way PC-BSD installs programs in the ports.
