installing xglobe and have no clue
the instillation instructions tell me this

edit the directory definitions in "Makefile"
type "make" to build xglobe
type "make install" to install the required files

How do I edit the definitions in make file?

what is make file?

I have tried to type all these things into my Konsole and they don't work
I keep getting

bash: make: command not found

I thank you ahead of time

Did you run the command

tar -xvzf file.tar.bz2

The file is probably "xglobe-0.5.tar.gz ". You should unpack it somewhere and go to that directory. There will be a file called "Makefile". You may need to modify it i.e. change variables like:

XGLOBE_DIR = /usr/local <--- where you want to install xglobe
XGLOBE_LIB_DIR = $(XGLOBE_DIR)/lib/xglobe <--- where do the libraries go
and so on

You should then run "make" and then "make install". The problem is that you don't have make in your path. Maybe it's because you're an ordinary user so become root and try again. If you still get

bash: make: command not found

then you may need to install make. I don't know how to do that because I haven't ever used SUSE. Probably via YAST or something. Someone else might tell you.

P.S. Sorry for my english :)
