    Ubuntu Packages: Binary Compilation

    Hi there,

    I am a tyro to Linux and have just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my machine for few days. I have some questions about Ubuntu packages. As I am going to install QT Creator IDE in an offline way --just to get more acquainted to Linux binary codes compilation-- I load this <> page. My questions are:

    1. I know that I must basically download the green diamonds. But what about red circles (or blue squares)? Should I get them? In case I use Ubuntu Software Center and install say, QT Creator which items of the <> page are installed automatically?

    2. How can I compile these binary codes? I googled but most of results concern online installation which isn't my case.

    Thanks ahead,

    Compilation and installation of .deb packages are two different processes. First of all, I would suggest you to check this Article on package installation.
    Check post #2 and #4 in that article.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
