I download open icon library from http://openiconlibrary.sourceforge.net/ so, how can i install it in ubuntu 10.04??

  • Could you tell me what is your purpose of installing the library and where exactly are trying to use/implement it? I am trying to find a solution for it, if you could provide us more details it will help us. Thanks! – VRU Jan 18 '13 at 13:45

You need to check with the installation notes provided with download, other wise most of the time these work fine.

If you have downloaded the .tar.bz2 file, then first place(copy) it where you want to extract, for example on desktop.

Then extract the file by right clicking on the file and select " Extract Here", or from the terminal by giving the command

$ tar xjf file.tar.bz2

Now move in to the folder created, for example

$ cd /home/yourusername/Desktop/folder name

$ ./configure

$ make

$ make install

Use sudo where ever it says permissions denied.
