Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a user account on a server that runs debian. I do not have the root or superuser password b/c i am not the local system admin, but I want to install a program (djvu2pdf and djvulibre-tools). I did some searching on the internet and found some useful information, but nothing to really tell me what to do. Here is my setup:
I unpack both files: tar zxvf <file>
I navigate into each unpacked directory so that I can actually install the respective apps. This is the step where I am a little lost. Let's say I'm trying to install djvulibre first. So:
...src/$ cd djvulibre-3.5.22
.../djvulibre-3.5.22$ ./configure --prefix=/home/usr_acnt/
After a lot of terminal output text the last line says:
Congratulations: the compilation was successful!
So then finally I do:
.../djvulibre-3.5.22$ make install
but there are some errors.
My question, if it compiled succesfully, did it install? Where am I at in the install process? I want it to put the executable files in my /home/usr_acnt/bin/ folder, how do I do that?
