Kopete, cannot use ./configure while installing it, i'm on slackware
I'm on slackware and using KDE. I tried to install Kopete like other programs for slack, using kopete.07.3.i486blabla.tgz and kopete.07.3.i386blabla.tgz but I can't find the nor the configure nor the install script.
tar zxvf kopeteblabla.tgz
-- it unzips, and 2 directories are created directly in home, usr/ and opt/
-- no kopete07blabla directory is created
-- then i typed:
--inside the usr/ directory and opt/ directory, but this is what happens:
bash: configure: command not found
-- I looked for the configure and install scripts but they are not anywhere.
-- I read the readme file and it said something about an "autoconf" program --that create the configure script using a "config.in" file.
-- I looked for those files but none of them is there.
Can anyone tell me what to do? or what am I doing wrong???
