This is not the first time I've run into this problem, but the files are part of a course I'm taking and it starts in a week.
The file downloaded under the name "linuxLAFFpkg.tar.bz2".
The instructions on the site said open it with an unzip app, which I did. It gave me a folder called "LAFF", which contains several folders, several files whose icons are purple diamonds, two text files starting with "lib", one text file called "qt.conf", and a text file called "run.sh".
Prior posts suggest looking for a file called "INSTALL" (none here).
- I tried
run.shand it just opened the file in gedit.
- I tried to run the run.sh in the terminal and it gave me an error message. Also the post said the classical steps in installation are /.configure, make, and sudo make install or sudo checkinstall.
My terminal doesn't know what "configure" is.
I have plenty to learn about Ubuntu and I hope you can teach me the next few things.
