lmao total noob: how to install? :D really

Post by andu » Thu Jul 12, 2007 16:18

I installed SL today and downloaded limewire for linux 4.13 pro

and there was an compressed package that contain those folders:

usr/bin...
usr/lib...
usr/share...

and I figured out that I need to copy and paste them :D (my logic)
but that aint allow to copy paste it :D

so problablary is some tool to install programs to linux because all programs I downloaded are
similar to limewire :roll: :wink: :cry: :P :x :evil: :!: :?: :idea: :arrow:

uncompress the file to your home dir, cd into the dir en type ./runLime.sh
if you're running beryl you might wanna switch to metacity or kwin first or else you'll just get a blank window.

My tip: find out what means "cd":

...open a console window, type in

man cd

and read what comes up. If you finished reading type in

q

and you'll be back in bash.

And after this cd into the dir you like.
