    Hi backpro! It's depend on the sources of the program you download, generally you need to start with unpacking archive like:
    tar xvf archive.tar
    later you can look for instructions of how to install program by looking for readme, install and other documentation files. If none can be found you can try execute these commands:
    #./configre
    #make
    #make install


    if previous three commands were executed successfully, your program probably could be found in /usr/local directory
