Installing kino on a Asus Eee PC small notebook

Hi I am trying to install Kino on a Asus Eee PC small notebook. The package (Kino) has been downloaded by someone else and consists of Cplusplus files and script files.I have used Linux before but not for a while. I feel that I have to run a script program , put when I try to do this with the script file nothing appears to run.

Can anyone give me a pointer in the right direction.

Many thanks in anticipation

What distro of Linux are you running? You can install Kino in Ubuntu or other Debian based distro with apt-get.

If you have c++ files, you have the source code and would need to compile them to make the executable file. I've never used kino but my guess would be that you would just use the normal steps from a command line. cd into the directory with your files then:

sudo make install
Note that Kino most likely has dependencies and you may not have all of the files that it needs. Package managers such as apt will take care of all of that for you.
