Install when apt-get doesn't work
This may be more of a general Linux question, but how do you install software if you can't get apt-get install to work.
There are a couple of thinks I have wanted to try so the first thing I tried was that, then a message would come up
unable to locate file
So there is the tar.gz file. Looks promising, But that is all it is.
Please bear in mind I am newly converted from the land of the Mac where things just install for you whether you want them or not.
