I know that's an archive file and I also know by double-clicking it, it will give me a bunch of files, this is the way I used to do in the window. That's simple
but, as I know so far about linux was, if wanna execute program I have to do some coding in the terminal thing. That's not the easy thing ever if compare to window. Window just click-N-click and it will do the rest for you.
anyway, I followed your instructuon
In the terminal I typed
tar xvjf <file> then I entered
and then I tried the other, I typed
then this was what I got in my terminal window
- Code: Select all
ly@ly-laptop ~ $ tar xvjf <file>
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
ly@ly-laptop ~ $ bunzip2 file.tar.bz2
bunzip2: Can't open input file file.tar.bz2: No such file or directory.
and then I searched in synaptic as you suggested. Finally, I found it, but in 0.3.11 version, its kinda out of date, and applied anyway, after completed, I don't know where it goes. I can't find it any where in my Menu
please, please show me steps how to get a program to work by using terminal window, because I got new version sitting right there in my desktop
if you know any site help newbie learn HOW-TO setup tar.bz2 things by showing step by step
