if you are not going to bother to inform us as to what this UNKNOWN tarbal is ...

Then there is really NOTHING we can do

is there a README file if so READ IT



if this is the icons from this post
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...1/#post5434206

Lots of "source packages" are not using "configure" to build.

Could be one of the other build methods for starting a build ...
{ 'perl Makefile.PL' , 'perl Build.PL' , 'python setup.py build' ,
# 'python setup.py install', 'cmake ..' , 'scons', './waf', 'jam' , 'ant',
'./install', './autogen.sh', 'autoreconf -vfi',
'libtoolize && aclocal && autoheader && automake --add-missing && autoconf' }.

... Or you are looking at some java.jar file, some python scripts, or it's a binary package ?

file:///home/casey/Downloads/119111-Kubuntu10Spectrum.tar.gz is the name of the tarball and when I try to install in login in system settings I get a can not download and make sure the spelling is correct. the file is in downloads.I never had this problem in older issues of Kubuntu Linux.

hi
Quote:
file:///home/casey/Downloads/119111-Kubuntu10Spectrum.tar.gz
that is not a web address

that is a folder in your home folder opened in firefox

the first hit in google for "119111-Kubuntu10Spectrum"

http://askubuntu.com/questions/68609...l-login-screen
and
https://www.kubuntuforums.net/showth...-Kubuntu-14-10

other hits show that this file is from 2012
4 years old and out of date
