I am pretty new to Linux so pardon the ignorance.
I am installing an application (a wiki server) on my system but am not doing so through aptitude as I can only grab a tar.gz of the package. This application will really be used by all users so it doesn't feel appropriate to install it in my home directory. Where should I put the folder of files? I would think that /usr/bin is the place, but I usually just see binary and linked files in there, which leads me to believe I should have the folder elsewhere and then drop a link to the executable in the /usr/bin folder.
