Why do I seem to have such a problem installing things onto my linux system??? I feel so stupid when it comes to these things. This is my biggest problem with linux is downloading things because I don't understand the language, so to say. Here is an example of the instructions of what I am currently trying to download, it is a game, and one I remember from my childhood of being kickass. The first 3-d game I can think of. Here it is:
Dungeons of Daggorath
PC-Port Version 0.4.0
Unzip the tar.gz file, cd to the "src" directory and type the following commands:
cp dod ..
To run, type cd .. and ./dod
That's it! If you want to make a shortcut to it, make sure that in the "execute" box of the short cut, you type (including the quotes):
where <directory> is the location of the unzipped dod executable
Enjoy, if you have any problems with the port please post to the daggorath discussion forum at http://mspencer.net/daggorath
I have no idea what this means. The file is currently in my home tmp folder, and it is unzipped as far as I know, I even have a blue gear sitting in the folder. Where do I go from here????
Thanks again guys.
PS: I do try to ask things as simple as I can, even if I know specific words and details, just so others who may not know can learn quickly without having to ask what a this is or that it, for example, blue gear. ;)
