I have a new laptop on which I am running Ubuntu 8.10. As I download software, where is the appropriate place to put the software? For example, I installed paros web proxy in
My thinking was to create a windows like program files directory to keep my "local" user software away from the system software that runs as root.
I do not see any one else installing this low privilege software in their user accounts though. Without putting software in root privileged areas, where should I intall?
