Ok all here is my problem. I am going to start with what started it, I tried to play a video, it brought up the movie player and gave me this error: No URI handler implemented for "DVD" ok, so I tried to download all available codecs, couldnt find any in the install list. So I posted for help on the openSuSe program and was told to use this line of code in the command console:
zypper ar http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/SuSE/11.2/ videolan
zypper install libdvdcss
zypper rr videolan

Did that, didnt work the first time so the guy chewed me out for mistyping what he put even though I put in exactly how he did. go figure, anyway so I did it again and this time it worked, installed just fine, however, I get the same error when I play the earlier movie. I said in the title that programs will install and not run, because Im having a similar problem with wine. I downloaded and installed wine, successful installation, however I can't find wine in the applications menu, and is not an option to use when I try to install a windows program. In Mandriva, when I insered a DVD with a windows program (COD4 for instance) it would give me the option to install with wine when I right clicked it, and wine appeared in the applications menu, in openSuSe, neither of these are true. in fact, nearly everything I download seems to have this problem. when I go to the software manager, it shows them all as installed, I can even find them in the terminal, but nowhere else. anyone else having these issues?

In unix/linux the following directories are where binaries aka executables are installed:

/bin
/sbin
/usr/bin
/usr/sbin
/usr/local/bin
/usr/local/sbin

Special Directories:

/etc/init.d
/etc/rc.d

The special directories are where start up and shutdown scripts are located.

The s infront of the bin's above denote only root or an account with elevated privileges can run.

All other files located on Unix/Linux should treated as non-executable/text files.
