How do you run the programs installed by OPKG


Recommended Posts

I am new to the Pineapple, and although I am figuring out some of the features, I just haven't been able to figure out how to run the packages after OPKG installed them. I have been scouring the web for info on this topic to end up with a big goose egg.

Can anyone guide me to the correct resourses?

Welcome to the forums, Ekliptz!

Say you install package XZY using opkg:

#First we update the opkg repository
opkg update

#Then we download and install the package
opkg install XYZ

#Finally, we can run the program

Programs are run over the command line, just like you are used to from any other linux based system.

Best Regards,
