How to use programs on Linux?
I installed Xandros on my computer last night and have been trying to figure out how to install and use programs I download. Programs such as xchat, gaim, or anything pretty much. I ./configure, make, then make install, and after that I don't know what to do. For gaim it told me to get the latest GTK, which also meant I needed glib, atk, pango, etc. I got all of that installed and it told me I should uninstall the old glib, how do I do this? For amsn all I have to do it type 'amsn' to start it but with xchat it doesn't work that way, hopefully someone can tell me how to install and run programs? Thanks.
