installing apps?


Ok so i a total newbie i know less than nothing, i used to windows and command lines and directories seem a mountain to climb for me.
I have mandravia installed along with windows xp, i did have ubuntu but on trying to install mandravia i somehow wiped it off. All is working well, and i dont seem to have any major problems.

The main thing that confuses the hell out of me is installing apps that are outside of the program so to speak.I have these two screen saver files sitting on my desktop waiting for installation qstars-0.4.tar.gz is one.
Now can someone please tell me in simple step by step terms how to install it, if i can master this it will give me a lot more confidence in using linux

There are guides to installing from source here and here. However, since you're using Mandriva, you might want to see if there is an RPM available for the package you want to install, as installing from RPM is somewhat easier than from source.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/rules.php

You have a thread running with much more detail here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=351075
I'm closing this one.

Configure script complains about KDE. You probably have KDE installed, but not development files for KDE. Install kdelibs-devel and kdebase-devel packages, then run configure again.

Now short explanation: to install program from source it requires so called header files for all libraries it uses. When you're not installing programs from suurce, you don't need the files (they take quite much space). That's why they're not installed by default. Header files (and some more related files) are kept in -devel packages. When configure script complains about not having a program or library the first thing youu should do to fix it is to check if you have programname-devel package and install it if missing.

once you have the developement files
when you configure kde apps you have to go
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
there are some other issues to setting up a working kde/qt developement environment

so just post back if there are more errors

[charles@localhost rss-kde-0.3]$
Thats what it tells me at the end of configuring, the package screen saver i trying to install, so i went to try and install kde headers but when i do this it says "sorry the following packages can not be seleted likdecore4-devel-3.3.2-124.2.102mdk.i586(due to unsatisfied devel(libart_lgpl_2))
i have searched for these packages to try and install them, with no luck, anyone know the way forward here?

Re: problem can install kde headers

You need to mention which Linux distribuion and version you are running. Anyway in this instalnce, i assume you are using Mandrake or Mandriva. You need to setup some urpmi rpm sources, using the instructions at easyurpmi. You need tosetup the main, contrib, plf and updates repositories. If you don;t know much about urpmi, then take a look at zebulon.org.uk. Once you have setup your sources, do as root
Code:
#urpmi --auto-select
#urpmi libkdecore4-devel libkdebase4-devel

I have merged your three VERY closely related threads.

Next time please stick to one to get a sensible effort put
into one of them.


Cheers,
