As long as you have the devel rpm's installed, it's easy.

1. Download the tar.gz file
2. Open a terminal window and type tar -zxf <filename>.tar.gz
3. cd <tarball_name>
4. ./configure
5. make
6. make install.

Those apply to lots of packages. When you download a file, the browser
asks you where you want it to go - ensure it goes to /home/user_dir
(where user_dir is your home dir - for instance, mine is /home/paul)

So, say you've downloaded the latest tarball (called scribus.tar.gz)

you would type

tar -zxf scribus.tar.gz
cd scribus
make install

and that's that. Once the make install has been done, all the bits
needed will be copied to the usr directory (in various places). You then
just run it by typing scribus.

Pass, though I do write adventures and maintain libRPG/Adventure



The world is throwing away oppressive regimes
Which don't allow people to choose.
Wars are fought to topple these people.
Yet the folks who do this, still use Windows.
Double standards or not understanding why they did it?
