I am trying to install perforce on my Ubuntu machine, after I untar the .tgz file, I get two folders lib and bin. Where would be the executable or how do I install it correctly?

Thanks.

The main binary will always be in the bin folder (hence the name bin(ary) :P). The program shouldn't need to be installed. Just double-click on the main binary or run

./nameofbinary

in the bin folder.

run the p4v file in the bin folder.

./p4v

Or double click on the file and select run from the dialog.
