How do I install a tar file?

Asked by Ropate on 2007-06-07

I have downloaded KMyMoney, and when I install it messages missing lib files, which I assume are in the Kdelibs package. I have downloaded the Kdelibs - a tar file, but need help in installing. How do I achieve the ultimate goal of having KMyMoney running?

Thanks for your question. Before try to install kdelibs from source file you can try to install KMyMoney using apt-get. In a shell do:

$: sudo apt-get update

$: sudo apt-get install kmymoney

This two commands will install the program you need plus the libs necessary. Thanks many

you can try:
tar -xzvf <yourfile> or
tar -xjvf <yourfile>

cd <folder_extract>
./configure
make
make install
make clean

Can you help with this problem?
