Why bluegriffon does not install in Debian 8?


I tried to install bluegriffon. Didn't work with apt-get install (error: unable to locate package bluegriffon).
I installed compiler (with apt-get install build-essential)
then I unpacked the "bluegriffon-1.7.2.Ubuntu13.04.x86_64.tar.bz2" that I downloaded from their website
then I changed to bluegriffon folder with the unpacked files and I tried to compile the package but the "./configure command" did not work (error : -su: ./configure: No such file or directory)
What should I do now?

A package for an oldish Ubuntu may well not work on the most rtecent Debian. What are the content of "bluegriffon-1.7.2.Ubuntu13.04.x86_64.tar.bz2"? Uncompiled source? Binary package? Something else? Is there a README in that directory that explains the install process?

I wish they posted on their website something for debian (but they didn't). there is no readme file. there are lots of files and some directories (too many to list, but i captured a screenshot of them - cannot attach the .png file though). not sure what files I should have there.

Hi...

Perhaps you can upload it to a free photo sharing site and provide the link.

Regards...

You don't need to compile or install, the download is the program code. I extracted the same download to /usr/local/bluegriffon on a fedora box, and simply ran /usr/local/bluegriffon/bluegriffon and voila!

Thanks... It worked. I will just have to create a shortcut for it and install it in the menu so I can access it easier when I want to start the program
