I'm a long time windows user who has made the plunge to ubuntu. Some things I like, somethings I don't like and most...well most I just don't understand as of yet.
I mostly get Apt-get. Groovy. I mostly get the software center. Less groovy usually breaks, but whatever. One thing I can't get at all is manually installing packages for which apt-get does not work. The file structure and layout of ubuntu is really odd to me.
I have a python library I need to install. It's not one that you can get through apt-get or pip. FYI it's here: https://github.com/opendns/dnspython-clientsubnetoption
So I can download a zip file. Great. As far I can tell I have to then extract it to usr/share/doc (at least this is where I find the other libraries I have been able to install for python through apt-get). I have no idea how to do this though since the GUI doesn't want to let me do anything that's not in my account folder and as far as I can tell the usr is some completely disconnected file structure when it comes to a terminal (I can't simply back up a level from my user account to usr for instance).
What's the right way to install said library then?
