Install packages on Linux.

Linux packages comes as a compressed files.
When we unpack them the question arises how to install them through Terminal??

1)First get the package from Linux Distribution site.
2)Unpack it.
3)Now enter the folder where you unpacked it and right click and open terminal here.
(If no such option try to do it manually by opening Terminal and using cd command)
4)Now use ls command and see if configure file is listed or not.
5) In terminal run this file using command ./configure
6)keep some patience and after completing use command make.
7)again  use make install command and you are done

Just you have to do is:
cd /path/to/package
./configure
make
make install
