I couldn't find an answer for this here already (maybe didn't know the right keywords to search for...) - my apologies if this kind of question have already been asked.

What about be a "good practice" folder to put GitEye for Linux installation in?

From what I read I thought /usr/local/GitEye might be the right place, but I'm not sure... (maybe lowercase giteye?).

Also, what would be the standard way to start it if I want a command-line shortcut (but not to add it to the path)? Should I make a symbolic link in /usr/bin/local?

Best regards!

  • I remember answering a similar question here. For the symlink, it would be /usr/local/bin or /opt/bin (which are not necessarily in the default path, this depends on the distribution). – Leiaz Mar 4 '15 at 12:54
  • So just to be sure I understand your answer - I should make a folder called GitEye under /usr/local or /opt and put all the unzipped content there, and create a symlink to the GitEye executable in /usr/local/bin or /opt/bin respectively, correct? – traveh Mar 5 '15 at 8:23
  • Yes, /opt is the more usual place if everything must be in one directory. /usr/local is usually for software that respects the bin lib share organisation of files. – Leiaz Mar 6 '15 at 12:39
