hi unwrittenlaw,

Ok, first what you'll need to do is use bunzip2:

Code:
bunzip2 gtk-gnutella-0.92.1.tar.bz2
assuming you downloaded the latest stable version off their site

after that you should have a regular .tar file where you do

Code:
tar xvf gtk-gnutella-0.92.1.tar
now that you have everything extracted in a folder, I'd recommend reading or flying through the README and INSTALL.

The rest usually goes with

Code:
./configure
Code:
make
Code:
su
Code:
make install
hope this helps!

I would look at the README or the INSTALL file in your newly created directory. It should tell you exactly how to proceed with the install. For example, some programs you do the ./configure -> make -> make install but I have found a few that have different steps so its best to read the README and/or INSTALL files before trying to install the program.

To view the README and/or INSTALL files (note the uppercased letters) just open a terminal/konsole, cd into the directory where the readme and/or install files are and type:

cat README
