i am experiencing problems while installing downloaded application which is in tar.gz
 
i have downloaded the file 4DIAC-IDE_0.3_Linux.tar.gz
for installing this firstly i opened the terminal window in that
cd -
for changing the directory to file existed directory
tar xvf 4DIAC-IDE_0.3_Linux.tar.gz

after extracting (using above command) i changed the directory to extracted folder using

arun@arun-desktop:~$ cd 4DIAC-IDE_0.3_Linux

while configuring the error comes as

arun@arun-desktop:~/4DIAC-IDE_0.3_Linux$ ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
arun@arun-desktop:~/4DIAC-IDE_0.3_Linux$

It could be a binary application that does not need to be compiled. Check the readme file if there is one inside the tar ball

As you can see on:
4DIAC-IDE_0.3_Linux/doc
4DIAC-IDE_HowTo_V0.3.pdf
That application is written in java so you haven't necessity to recompile to use it.

Welcome to LQ.

./configure can only be run, if a script by name
'configure' is present in an application.

cd 4DIAC-IDE_0.3_Linux
./4DIAC-IDE
.. or click 4DIAC-IDE for a different behavior.

There is no install.
You can keep the application in /home/"username"/ .
