make[2]: Entering directory `/home/arabi/Downloads/soundconverter-2.1.6/bin'
 /bin/mkdir -p '/usr/local/bin'
 /usr/bin/install -c soundconverter '/usr/local/bin'
/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file ‘/usr/local/bin/soundconverter’: Permission denied
make[2]: *** [install-binSCRIPTS] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/arabi/Downloads/soundconverter-2.1.6/bin'
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/arabi/Downloads/soundconverter-2.1.6/bin'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
This is at the end of install. I checked the rpogram for version and it was still 2.04.
The rest of the script seemed to run fine. Am I supposed to run as su?
Doesn't seem to be able to open/write to /usr/bin.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

SOLVED by Manfred Hampl again Thank You

I assume that your user does not have administrative authorizations by default, and you have to use su or sudo to be allowed writing in the /usr/local/bin area.

The README and INSTALL files do not specifically state it, but I assume on Ubuntu and similar systems the correct command is
./configure && make && sudo make install
