Thread: installed programs dont show up

  1. #1
    Default installed programs dont show up
    I have noticed that when I install a program via Cydia the programs dont show up as icons.. Is that normal is there another way to launch them now? Is this something someone knows about? They show up in the modify section. I only have my main screen with icons and 4 extra ones on the 2nd screen.. Any suggestions?

    Try rebooting your iphone. Ie, restarting the homescreen.

    Again, please confirm your current firmware and the exact programs you're trying to install.

    Please explain this to me: I have successfully jailbroken my 2G, 2.0 apple unlocked phone. I have downloaded Cythia. I have installed and tried ssh - works fine. However, under the Manage command, is says I have a whole pile of applications installed. Under Install it lists a huge amount of apps.

    It is, from organization point a nightmare for me to figure out what is what. Is there a doc somewhere which would show me what my system should look like after installing Cythia? What I can and cannot delete?

    For the most part, it's going to look exactly like it did before you installed cydia. very few of the installed packages have icons.

    for example, the ssh server. it's running in the background, unless you shut it down manually. the proxy must be started manually from a terminal session (free internet on your laptop, anyone?). the x applications run, but you have to display them on another machine (remote desktop for windows, LOL). many of the things installed are command line programs or libraries.

    if you want to know what the individual packages are, you'll have to google each one.

    i think people are expecting something out of cydia that it, at this point in time, cannot deliver, simply because many of the apps people are used to haven't been ported.

    ok, thanks. i would like to put some sanity into what is on my iPhone. the newer release of cydia does look much better. i would like to know, which of the stuff cydia installed i can delete. i am only interested in ssh(d) and basic unix - I'd like to loose the development stuff but am afraid that I might break something.
