Suppose i have a situation where i need to install a software, which is not available in repositories or Synaptic package manager...And i have the .bin file.
where should i install this file? I mean in which path?
Below are the possible situations where i need the answer
- I know that synaptic package manager or sudo apt-get install command installs the application in a properly place..What if the software we are looking is not available there?
- Suppose a situation has arised like IBM sphere has released new version of the websphere and i want to install the software on my machine without waiting for Ubuntu to bundle this version to upload on repositories..
- I need to know the location of the software installed via synapric/apt-get install command...I need this because if i want to set environment variables..without knowing the location..I can't do this..
EDIT: I have completely modified the context of the question
