Justin & Steve,

This page is somewhat Fedora-centric. Elsewewhere, including Ubuntu  
releases, the command is:
(and is found in /usr/bin/)

BTW, the command line is good to try out the server, see what its  
doing etc. However if you want a long running venue server, I'd  
suggest starting/stopping it from an init script like any other service.
