First you should check if the program you want to install is available as a binary package in the repository of the distro you're using.

If it's not and you need to compile the program, it's a good idea to read the README and INSTALL files that are inside the tarball you extracted, since some sources need to be compiled slightly differently. In any case, the general procedure after you extract the tarball is to use cd to enter into the extracted directory and then run the commands you posted above, one at a time:

Code:
./configure
make
make install
Anyway, which distro are you using and what specific software are you trying to install?

Thank U for the reply

I am very interested in installing this terminal EMU Called terminolog so I went to the website and I installed it ,
But I could be wrong But it says U need these software to go with it , so I install the EFL 1.11.1 as they recommanded on the left side

So now i have the EFL but dont know how to install

Can u also please tell me what should I put after the ./configure ?? do I put the File name or folder name ??

I am using Linux Mint 17 and here is the site I am on https://www.enlightenment.org/p.php?p=download&l=en

First you need to enter into the directory that contains the source code:

Code:
cd efl-1.11.1
Then you need to run the commands I told you before. According to the INSTALL file, there's no need to give any special parameter to configure. It will probably complain that something is missing. If that's the case, you will need to install the missing package(s) with your preferred package manager (apt-get, aptitude, synaptic, etc) and run configure again until it finishes without errors. Then you can run the remaining commands.

Hi linuxmarble

Since you are using ubuntu or any other derivative of it. You can install terminology with these instructions from this site

http://www.webupd8.org/2013/04/termi...-emulator.html

Terminology is a ppa program which you need to add to your repos

If you follow the first method, you will need the gcc. You can install it with apt-get or aptitude.

It seems like the ppa from this developer isn't available for some unknown reason.

I did another google search and it seems the ppa for terminology is depended on the version of ubuntu you have.

Here is another link ( for ubuntu 14.04 )
http://askubuntu.com/questions/50872...n-ubuntu-14-04

In that article, this will install the latest version of terminology for ubuntu 14.04. It also mentions if you want the stable version of terminology you'll need an earlier version of ubuntu and you would replace ppa:enlightenment-git/ppa with ppa:efl/trunk ( use this ppa for ubuntu before 14.04 )

Ok, now you need to install pkg-config and run the configure script again.

@ linuxmarble

I have linux Mint 17 running in a VM and I decided to try the second link I gave you.
http://askubuntu.com/questions/50872...n-ubuntu-14-04

I followed the exact instructions in the article
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:enlightenment-git/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install terminology
And it work!. Since this worked in Mint, it should work in ubuntu or any other derivative of ubuntu/debian.
