How do I install an application that was downloaded as .tar.gz?


I downloaded gyachi-1.2.11.tar and extracted it to the desktop.

How do I install it?

Thanks

Hi,

Try to use the command prompts rather than GUI.I think you extracted it via GUI.

Now suppose you have xyx.tar file on desktop,then :
Open terminal i.e command prompt and go to desktop using:
$cd Desktop
$tar xvf xyz.tar
$cd xyz
$make
$make install

Above are the standard steps. Exact steps you can get in xyz folder's README or INSTALL file
