Installing programs in DSL
First off, I am completely unfamiliar with DSL, and am used to more GUI-oriented OSes. I've been trying to install a couple of programs to DSL, and I'm having a terrible time with it. I'm very used to things like Windows, so the terminal is quite different for me.
What I've been trying to install primarily is AVG antivirus. I downloaded the .deb and .tar.tar files. I also tried to install a program from a .tar.gz None of them seem to work, and I don't know what I'm doing wrong/ not doing right.
I found a tutorial that said after going into /usr/local/src/ to extract the tarball with tar -xzvf <filename> Whenever I use this command, however, I'm given the error message: syntax error near unexpected token 'newline' The ./configure command does not seem to work either; I just get a message saying that the file or directory does not exist.
Can anyone give me some tips or point me to a very in-depth or basic tutorial?
