I downloaded processing-2.0.1-linux64.tgz.
In Windows, when I download a non-install software (.exe) I locate it under Program Files directory so that it stays with other software. I don't want it to run in Downloads or somewhere else. I'm vety miticulous about my directory structure.
So in Ubuntu I want processing software to run just like firefox. I mean when I write 'proc' , it should show up in gnome activities window. I don't know where to locate a tgz file and contents of it? There is "Add downloaded package" in Synaptic file menu. I tried it however the tgz file was disabled, not clickable.
This is contents of processing-2.0.1 folder.
