install fortran in ubuntu 11.10

i want to install fortran composer xe for linux
should i be using the Sudo apt-get l_fcompxe_2011.9.293.tgz?
I uncompressed it to the Desktop
but from terminal, change dir to Desktop, then i see the l_fcomxe_2011.9.293.tgz file there.
Am i able to run Sudo apt-get there?

You might wanna help yourself with terminal from the beginning.
Just type:
tar -xf <package name>
to extract.
And then
cd <package dir>
sudo make install
I hope this helps

Nope. Intel doesn't provide the source code, hence this is not a standard configure/make installation. Your best bet is to follow instructions in the official guides on the Intel site. Basically inside the extracted archive you will find an utility called The Intel installation guide will provide details (check specifically the prerequisites for Ubuntu).

Release Notes


2 Installation
The installation of the product requires a valid license file or serial number. If you are evaluating
the product, you can also choose the ―Evaluate this product (no serial number required)‖ option
during installation
If you received your product on DVD, mount the DVD, change the directory (cd) to the toplevel
directory of the mounted DVD and begin the installation using the command:
If you received the product as a downloadable file, first unpack it into a writeable directory of
your choice using the command:
tar xzvf name-of-downloaded-file
Then change the directory (cd) to the directory containing the unpacked files and begin the
installation using the command:
Follow the prompts to complete installation.
Note that there are several different downloadable files available, each providing different
combinations of components. Please read the download web page carefully to determine which
file is appropriate for you.
You do not need to uninstall previous versions or updates before installing a newer version
the new version will coexist with the older versions.

I am trying ./ from terminal and at the room of the l_fcomxe_2011.9.293 folder and see what happens.
