Yes, maybe I'm trying to install from source. I have downloaded tar.gz archivr and installation instructions are as follows:

tar xvfz anjuta-1.2.4a.tar. gz
cd anjuta-1.2.4a
./configure
make
make install

Does this mean that I'm dealing with the source?
If does please can you give me link where I can download executable version of anjuta?
How can I recognize executable version (since it's not .exe link in windows)?
Thank you for help, I really appreciate it

i'm new to linux as well. i've been using it for a while now but without doing stuff like installing new software. until two days ago...

i wanted to install the latest firefox. of course i did the usual stuff: reading the faq on their website, reading the programs install instructions after downloading, playing around with the install manager etc. , but obviously i wouldn't suceed.

after some webresearch i found out about the mandriva package manager and the easyurpmi website. unfortunately i chose a bad server from argentina and found only very few programs. i was about to give up already, but the next day, after reading some more, i did the same with a different server - et voila!

@Micik
go to wow.mandrakehelp.com/RPM-HOWTO.html and then to easyurpmi.zarb.org and you'll succeed!

if you downloaded the tarball (generally .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 files are called tarballs) from anjuta site then yes you are trying to install from source. Looks like you haven't read the whole thread...please read it and setup your package mananger for easyurpmi. Also learn Mandrake's package manager if you haven't already.

Tux,
