cant install k3b


i extracted the file and it created a usr, install, and opt folder in my home directory, i dont like to be unorganized so i put them all in a folder called K3B

now i know the next thing i gotta do is ./configure, but where the hell is the ./configure - ive looked in all the folders and cant find anything

wtf?

any file you download from www.linuxpackages.net
will be a slackware package

others...basically if they only contain etc usr install
and inside install you see doinstall.sh and slack-desc
it is a slackware package
