Sorry for the noob question...
I am trying to host a teamspeak 3 server
as root, i can run the command "ts3server" which will start the server up.
as a user i get command not found.

normally on other distrosi ]d have just run ts3server_minimal_script (or something like that) but that one gives me a "binary file not found" so... i figured just to use the method i already found to work.

I don't know if ts3server needs to run as root, but you could try with full path, e.g.
Code:
/usr/sbin/ts3server

If you have sudo, try:
Code:
sudo ts3server

Try first with full path and without sudo - usually a common user just hasn't /sbin and /usr/sbin/ in its PATH - you can set it in your .bashrc.

/usr/sbin and /usr/local/sbin are never on user PATH.
