Ok- so this is a tarball file- installing those was actually one of the first things I learned how to do on Linux way back in the day....
first off you want to extract the file- think like a winzip file on Windows
tar -xzvf filename.tar.gz
This will create a folder right next to the tarball- probably sitting on your desktop (or whereever you save the tarball itself to.
Next you want to go into that folder
Please note it is 'filename' and not 'filename.tar.gz' at this point
At this point you might want to check for a README file to give you specific directions, you can do that by clicking on the folder and looking around, or you can do it via the command line with the following commands::::
In this case it is called instructions- it gives you anything that deviates from the norm---- I've got that file open on my computer now... I'll walk you through this one- I just want to put it out there so you know to look next time.
Now, installing programs is a root user privilege- so we need to temporarily become the root user.
and then enter your password
Next, paste this in
From that point you should be smooth sailing. The INSTRUCTIONS file suggests the program will prompt you for everything from then on... but if it doesn't these are your dependencies (think of a dependency as a 'required to work' file- Kind of like DirectX being required for certain games. Python is the main one- if you get an error about needing some other program installed search LQ for how to install it in Fedora 10 (I haven't used Fedora since #2 or #3- so I can't offer much on how to install dependencies in it.
Either way- let us know how it goes.
