Help installing .tar.bz2 files

Recommended Posts



I am trying to install a game which I hv downloaded and I followed the rules provided in the forum about how to install .tzr.bz2 files.


But in the step where we have to make a configuration file it is saying "bash: ./configure is not a command".


What should I do???


Please help me.

The ./configure will be referring to you being in the particular directory where configure exists as this prepares the source file that you downloaded for it to then be compiled and installed. Also, for compiling you'd probably need some additional development tools, such as make and possibly even gcc.

The GNU make tool should be installed on your system because it is
commonly used to simplify the process of installing programs.

the documentation/README in the file downloaded should tell you what you need to get it compiled and installed.
