How to install lockersync3.0 from tar.gz

Asked by Otis Lockhart-El on 2008-06-13

Hello

I've downloaded lockersync3.0 as a tarball.gz file and opened it in Ark. I then extracted it to Dolphin and tried to use gdebi installer to install the package also, I tried to do it in Konsole. I know I'm missing a step or typing in the right commands. Is there anybody who know how to do this correctly.

Thanks for the question.

gdebi install .deb files, not source packages

A tarball is usually a source package. If you want to install that it must be compiled first.

Usually the README file or INSTALL file give instructions for that.

Mostly it is something like

sh ./configure
make
sudo make install

or something similar.

Hope this helps.

Can you help with this problem?
