Installing tar.gz files in Linux Mint 11
  

I just want to know how can I install the install tar.gz files? One method that I know is of the package manager and one thing it does is that it saves the trouble of typing the code in the terminal, thatís what it does. Anyways I want to know what do you think about the same thatís what I want to know from you so is there anything that you want to say then please do feel free to add over here thatís what I am saying here.

Files like tar.gz do contain source code for a program so the better part is that donít go with the package manager and all it is not at all good so what I would say is that go with the manu al installation that would be better for you thatís what you should be doing at the present moment of time thatís it from my side for you.

Not all Linux systems use the same package management system as Mint. RPM-based systems like Fedora and OpenSUSE do give some problem with the game thatís what I want to say here, so hope you did understand what I have said here thatís it from my side for you. So donít go with the installer package file and all so it will be of not good use for you, thatís what I am saying here. So hope you did understand what I have said here thatís it from my side for you.
