Welcome to LQ!!

Ubuntu, not Ubundu....

I assume that this was not available using the package manager.....
Normally, if you download a .zip file, you would first unzip it and then look for some kind of README or other instructions for what to do next. Try doing "unzip filename", and then looking in the file or folder that gets created.

When you run "apt-get install <something>" doesn't that go looking in the repositories?

Run this command:
unzip demo-monitoring-the-web.zip
Then see if there are files called README and INSTALL that give further instructions.

Beaten by a faster typer again!!!
