I have recently installed Ubuntu and want to install new applications of
the '.bin' nature. I have got the hang of extracting the .bin and
chmod-ding it to be executable and understand that the .bin has to be
executed from the app's new directory. But which is the'right' directory
for them to be started from? /usr/?, /opt/? /home/chris? A read of the
FHS site helped a bit but still am not sure.
Is there a good rule of thumb for doing this?
Also: ...What Gnome-based filemanager is well regarded and will display
two panes, W. Explorer style? Will the default do it?
