installing tar.gz tutorial (new-be)

Post by aaronleishman » Wed Apr 02, 2008 1:05 am

I'm looking for a good tutorial of installing tar.gz programs in mint? Does the tar.gz file need to be in a specfic folder before the tar command? And how do you know which commands to use.

There is a wiki about this - or rather mostly a couple of links on a wiki page ... eb_package
The link to monkeyblog is very helpful
