At the beginning when we start in Linux and look for a program, it is normal that we find a .deb or .rpm and in many cases we find programs with the extension .tar.gz y .tar.bz2These files are compressed and usually contain instructions to install it apart from the program.
The installation for these two types of packages is exactly the same
First we enter the folder where we have the file, if the folder has several words we have to put them with "" or if it does not look for folders with each word
cd folder where the file is located cd "folder where the file is"
Inside we unzip the file
tar -zxvf filename.tar.gz tar -jxvf filename.tar.bz2
We do make (compile)
Now make install
Sometimes it can give us an error in ./configure, in that case it does not need compilation and with running we have plenty, in a terminal we
Or we create a launcher.
