I can't seem to install kiba-dock on a Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy gibbon)
 
I am very new to ubuntu/linux and I have no idea what a directory is. I don't know how to install a tar.gz package. The Debian packages is okay because it is automatic. But that is not the reason I am here today. I want to install kiba dock and I don't even know how to! Can somebody please help? I have a dell dimension 3000 with ubuntu 7.10. running on a Intel Pentium 4 (2.80GHz processor) 512MB RAM 80GB Seagate Hard drive.

tar.gz is one type of compressed file, so you should extract it first. For first step, you should copy that file.tar.gz to desktop (i usually did this, it's my habit). Then from shell, as root, you must change directory to that kiba folder. Inside there, type tar zxvf kibaxxxx.tar.gz. xxxx means the serial number. From there you can configure, make, make install it.

Hope this will help you

shell is pictured like black monitor. Usually, it is located on.

Do this following tips

user@computername$ sudo -i
password: (You enter your own password, its code won't be appear. After you've finished it, press enter)
root@computername$ cp source_of_kibafile /Desktop
root@computername$ cd /Desktop
root@ computername/Desktop$ ls

Then, look source_of_kibafile, type for 4 words first an then you press "tab". For example, source_of_kibafile is named by kiba_dock23_56.tar.gz

root@computername/Desktop$ kiba (press tab)

It will appear

root@computername/Desktop$ kiba_dock23_56.tar.gz
root@computername/Desktop$ tar zxvf kiba(press tab)

then, the result is

root@computername/Desktop$ tar zxvf kiba_dock23_56.tar.gz

after this, a process is occuring. It will taje a moment. Then at your desktop will appear a new folder which has name kiba_dock23_56. Go to that folder

root@computername/Desktop$ cd kiba_dock23_56
root@computername/Desktop/kiba_dock23_56$ ./configure
(process)
root@computername/Desktop/kiba_dock23_56$ make
root@computername/Desktop/kiba_dock23_56$ make install

If anything troubled you, you must read readme file or install file on that folder. It may need some dependancies you have to download it first.

Hope this will help you
