It could be a binary application that does not need to be compiled. Check the readme file if there is one inside the tar ball

As you can see on:
That application is written in java so you haven't necessity to recompile to use it.

Welcome to LQ.

./configure can only be run, if a script by name
'configure' is present in an application.

cd 4DIAC-IDE_0.3_Linux
.. or click 4DIAC-IDE for a different behavior.

There is no install.
You can keep the application in /home/"username"/ .


ide, ubuntu
