how do you install things?

well I don't really know anything about Linux for one

well I want to install the TiLP (program that lets you send things to your Ti from your computer) and I have no idea how to do that

I tried to install the windows version using wine and it did get installed but it doesn't work after that and just fails

so I downloaded the linux one (version 6.77 if it matters) and I don't know what command to enter in the console or anything to start installing it since there's no set-up icon or anything...

what do I do?

Debian has a very cool thing called "apt" here you will find a lot of programs

# apt-cache search tilp
tidev-modules-source   - Sources for drivers for texas Instruments calculators link cables
 tilp - TI <-> PC communication program for X 
tiemu - Texas Instruments calculators emulator
So as you can see the "tilp" package is already in the Debian repository's, all you need to do now is grab them heres how.


apt-get install tilp
and your done, hope this helped.
