learning to add programs or apps with TAR. :-(
Hi; My first post and I feel I found the right place to make it. The destro forums don't like questions from Newbies. Forgive me if I start rambling.
I have installed Debian 8.4.0 on a Dell Optiplex GX620 and hope to move to it from a windows PC as my Internet machine. It loads programs a little slow, but not that bad. Ubuntu 14 was horrible and Ubuntu 8.4 worked well but as I was told it is out of date. Didn't seem like the best place to learn.
I would like to pull pictures from my Kodak C613. I found on the web I needed libgphoto2 and downloaded it's i686.pkg.tar.xz. I ran tar -Jxvf and got a folder 'usr' that contains bin,include,lib,share. I thought there would be a configure file? Can I add this through an app get program?
Sorry for the confusion but I have been trying to install xv's and bz2's and have never gotten past ./configure. Make comes back as not a command.
