just use tar and extract it, then make sure you use

./configure --enable-gui

Or else skins will _NOT_ work. Also, create a symbolic link called "default" inside the folder "Skins" and point it to the directory of the skin you want to use.

e.g. If in the skin directory
Code:
ln -s ./CoolBlue ./default
