Installation in Windows based system come along with Click-Next Windows Installers. But that is not the case about linux.

With Linux, you have to to understand the directories well to decide the installation (things like concept of rc.d). Mostly Linux like Ubuntu have components of system to do tasks, like GUI manager, Package Manager etc. Ubuntu comes with Synaptic Package manager. Which is like an app-store for trust-able applications. It requires internet connection to download and install Packages. Some packages are not present on synaptic, they are called Personal Package Archives (PPAs)

What are PPAs and how do I use them?

In summary, to install the custom software you have to refer the installation manual of the publishers. For example, to setup the ElasticSearch you should get necessary files offline and install as per instruction here. A [math].deb[/math] file can be installed with :

There are actually a couple different methods.

Via the command line, find the name of the package you want to install

aptitude search keyword

Then install it using apt

sudo apt-get install packagename

There is also a GUI interface called "Synaptic" that will do the same thing for you. It really depends on the type of program that you are desiring to install. Many applications come with their own installation scripts. I need more information about what you are trying to install in order to answer your question.

Also, before downloading anything, go to SYSTEM -> ADMINISTRATION -> SYNAPTIC PACKAGE MANAGER and do a search for your application and see if it is listed.

In Ubuntu 10.04You can easily search and install software in Ubuntu 10.04,

Goto Applications --> Ubuntu Software Center.

There are a number of ways to install applications on the Ubuntu desktop. You can use the Ubuntu Software Center, apt-get from the command line or download applications from the Internet. One aspect of install is understanding your operating system requirements. This article will help you work through each of those options.

Historically, installing applications in Linux has been a difficult task. However, this has become dramatically easier in recent years as Ubuntu implemented a 'one-click' installation tool called Ubuntu Software Center.

Ubuntu Software Center

There are thousands of software applications available in the Ubuntu Software Center . Most applications are free and licensed under GPL, but some are priced according to their use or popularity.

The Ubuntu Software Center can be launched by clicking on its icon in the panel. When the main window opens, it displays new and featured software, a list...

Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? I hope you are all having a great afternoon so far. Today we had some temporarily server issues which caused some of you not to be able to access our site but I logged in my Linux server about 30 minutes ago and I have solved an issue. Something went wrong with my MySQL so I had to tweak some settings and restart the MySQL server, and so far the load is fine, sorry for any issues this caused! Anyway, please read on…

Today will mark the start of what I am now calling ‘Tutorial Month’, from now until November 21st 2015. We will be releasing tutorials each week, we will start with tutorials targeted towards Linux/Ubuntu beginners and then we will move on to the advanced Ubuntu guides and tutorials later on. I think you will love these tutorials. The first tutorial we have has been submitted by Daniel Chakraborty, expect more articles from him. Hopefully he joins our staff as a writer! Let’s begin.

I've installed applications with the ubuntu software center and even with terminal comands but sometimes I seem to only be able to use applications by downloading a tar.gz file from the vendor website.

Sometimes when I right click on the tar.gz folder it allows me to open in the software center but more often are not I need to extract the tar.gz & open a file which runs the application.

What is the correct process for installing applications from a tar.gz folder? Where should I place the contents of the extracted tar.gz folder? Should I be using get apt instead

UPDATE

As @Theolodis suggested I ran the below code in my terminal

navicat110_mysql_en:$ pwd /home/ross/Downloads/navicat110_mysql_en navicat110_mysql_en:$ ls LGPLV2 Navicat start_navicat wine wine_old navicat110_mysql_en:$ ./configure -bash: ./configure: No such file or directory navicat110_mysql_en:$ ./start_navicat

Navicat launched after I ran the last command.
