I am a new Ubuntu user. I'm trying to install a package in a file called
VNC-Viewer-5.0.3-Linux-x86.gz. I keep having problems.
The package is in my folder:
owner@ubuntu:~$ cd ~/Downloads owner@ubuntu:~/Downloads$ sudo apt-get install VNC-Viewer-5.0.3-linux-x86.gz [sudo] password for owner: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package VNC-Viewer-5.0.3-linux-x86.gz E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'VNC-Viewer-5.0.3-linux-x86.gz'
I also tried:
owner@ubuntu:~/Downloads$ ./configure bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
I have followed
sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall as explained on this wiki page and I am still quite lost in how to install this
gz package. This package is needed to remotely control my school computer.
My Kernel is Linux-3.5.0-21 generic (x86-64)
Distribution Ubuntu 12.10
GNU C compiler version 4.7.2
