So I've downloaded the .tar.gz file for Cave Story, and since I'm somewhat new to Ubuntu, I have no idea how to install it. I tried the commands suggested at How to install a .tar.gz (or .tar.bz2) file?, but no dice. My most successful attempt was "make config.dat", which spat out a different error than make all the other files. So I assume that's what I should be going with? It says "make: * No rule to make target `config.dat'. Stop." Do I type something else in?

I have looked up this question before, but I can never actually find something saying, "Look, you UNIX challenged piece of shit, you have to specify this or that, or something." And that would be the most helpful, really, because everything else is just "Do this" And I think "How?" Thanks in advance –  yonderfork Nov 27 '13 at 8:59
    
Edit your question and include that information, preferably all of it. Also, do not modify the output in any way. Do not use comments to provide this information. –  Braiam Nov 28 '13 at 0:26
    
I didn't know I was supposed to do that, sorry. –  yonderfork Nov 28 '13 at 0:55
