    Installing software.


    Hello All
    Happy New Year.
    I downloaded CorelPhotoPaint9Lnx.tar.gz
    I can't figure out how to install this program.
    Could someone please tell me how to install this program.
    I'm somewhat of a newbie so please make the answer as easy as possible. I do know how to use the terminal.
    Thank you all for your help in advance.

    Check this tutorial, How to install Software in Linux ( post #2 ). Follow instructions from there. If you find any difficulty, post back here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hello devils casper
    I used the command ls and got the following answer.

    montana@montana-laptop:~$ ls
    Desktop Downloads Music Pictures Templates usr
    Documents examples.desktop My GCompris Public Ubuntu One Videos
    montana@montana-laptop:~$

    The file that I'm trying to install is

    /home/montana/Downloads/CorelPHOTOPAINT9Lnx.tar.gz

    I see from the information that I read that I have to compile the software from the tar.gz extension. I presume from the above information that the file is in the home directory. It looks different from the one that you show. Mine is in the download folder where it was downloaded to. Do I have to change the location of my file? If so what do I do put it on the desktop and it will be in the home directory. If not on the desktop then how do I put it into the home directory?
    I presume all this is done in the terminal.
    Thank you for your help.

    That is the content of your entire home directory. First, you'll need to cd into Downloads. Verify that your file is there.
    Code:
    ls
    Provided it's there, do:
    Code:
    tar -zxvf CorelPHOTOPAINT9Lnx.tar.gz
    You should end up having a new directory... possibly CorelPHOTOPAINT9Lnx or something similar. cd into that one. The next step is either going to be ./configure or make, depending on the software.
    After that, you'll need root privileges to actually install. So do:
    Code:
    su -
    <enter root password>
    cd /home/montana/Downloads/CorelPHOTOPAINT9Lnx
    make install
    If all goes well, you're good to go.
    Post any errors that might come up.

    From where did you download it? Check CorelPHOTOPAINT9Lnx folder after executing tar command suggest by jayd512. Extracted folder includes install text file having full installation instructions most of the time.

    Here is what I've done so far. I don't know what to do next. I see in this the word install but don't know how to use it. Could you let me have the instructions what to do next. Could you let me have it as soon as possible. I don't want to close this down as I wouldn't know how to get it back.

    Code:

    I don't remember where I got this but it was at a site that had a number of programs. I'll try to find out where I got it from.
    Thank you for your help.

    Have you tried to open ReadmeFirst.html file in Browser? It may have installation instructions.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    No I didn't know how to do that. Do I just click the read me that is in the terminal? That is the only read me file that I've seen.
    thank you.

    You can open up a file manager (Naulitus, Konqueror, Thunar) and double-click the Readme file from there.

    As I said above I'm a real newbie, how do I open up a file manager (Naulitus, Konqueror, Thunar).
    Thank you.
