I downloaded and extracted ActiveState Tcl 18.104.22.168 to my new Suse Linux
computer I set up this week. I am a total Linux noob.
I am trying to follow the instructions on how to install the program:
In the directory where you extracted the archive, run the install.sh installer script, which will automatically select between the GUI or text-based installer depending on your system configuration. After installation, make sure that the directory containing the installed executables (ActiveTcl/bin) is included in your PATH variable.
This is where I am stuck. I tried clicking on the install.sh file in the Konqueror file manager window and nothing happens.
I go to terminal and type install.sh and nothing happens.
If I type install I get an error message saying not enough arguments and to use install --help
I type install --help and get a page of commands I don't understand how to use correctly.
I try to use the run command to run the install.sh file and nothing happens.
Anyone know what or how I am supposed to get this package installed. I guess I have no idea how to run a *.sh file correctly and the instructions from ActiveState don't tell you how to do it. Thanks for any help you can give me. It was so much easier to install Tcl on my Windows XP machine, all I had to do was click on the exe file.
Thanks. I got it installed. Now I need to change my PATH and MANPATH variables. I tried the 3 methods in the ActiveState Tcl instructions and none of them worked. Does anyone know how to change the PATH and MANPATH in SUSE 9?
