    How to install programs not downloaded with klik

    I have downloaded a couple programs like mplayer and kxsmooth dock hat I would like to install but I am not very good with console. I tried cd to the directory that I had kx dock in and tried typing ./configure debian-binary but I couldn't get it to start. How can I use console to install programs? Thanks.

    The title..It's a bit confusing.....If you download file from point&klik, it should intall automaticaly in your home directory and a menu will appear on your KDE menu, eventhough it's not appear in mine(I'm using kano).

    If you mean compiling and install application from source code,then the procedure will be something like this:
    1) Extract the source code to your temporary folder ( you could use ark ).
    2) Open konsole and su
    3) Change directory to where you extract your source code.
    4) Run command: ./configure --prefix=/usr Some apllication don't need you to run ./configure. Make sure you read the installation readme first. You don't have to use prefix. I use it to make sure it will install in /usr/share, eitherwise it will install in /usr/local.
    5) make
    6) make install. You're done.
    Not all application can be succesfull compiled this way.

    I would suggest you try find debian package first before trying DIY.
    Search here:http://www.apt-get.org/

    If you want to install *.deb package, the gui way, you need to install (apt-get)kpackage.
    Open the *.deb package using kpackage by right clicking on it --->Open with --->system-->kpackage. You can tick remember application assosiation, so that next time you don't have to right click anymore.
