Logic of Installing Applications on Linux?
Could someone give me the logic on how to install applications on linux? I'm a total linux newbie. In windows all you need to have is the .exe file, run it then install the software with the installer. But how about on linux, how do you install programs? I tried to download some applications for linux but most of them are like source codes that I dont understand. I tried downloading winrar for linux, I just don't know how to install them. Hope someone could give me the logic. THanks...
