How to install Linux / UNIX *.tar.gz tarball files

Q. I’m new to Linux. Over few days I found lots software distributed as .tar.gz file. How do I install tar.gz files under Linux?

A. tar.gz also known as tarball, an archive format for electronic data and software. Most Linux tarball contains a source code for software. If you are new to Linux I recommend using apt-get, rpm and yum command to install all binary packages.

Tarballs are a group of files in one file. Tarball files have the extension .tar.gz, .tgz or .tar.bz2. Most open source software use tarballs to distribute programs/source codes.

# 1: Uncompress tarball

To uncompress them, execute the following command(s) depending on the extension:
$ tar zxf file.tar.gz
$ tar zxf file.tgz
$ tar jxf file.tar.bz2
$ tar jxf file.tbz2

Now change directory
$ ls
$ cd path-to-software/

# 2: Build and install software

Generally you need to type 3 commands as follows for building and compiling software:
# ./configure
# make
# make install

Where,

  • ./configure will configure the software to ensure your system has the necessary functionality and libraries to successfully compile the package
  • make will compile all the source files into executable binaries.
  • Finally, make install will install the binaries and any supporting files into the appropriate locations.

# 3: Read INSTALL / README file

Each tarball comes with installation and build instructions. Open INSTALL or README file for more information:
$ vi INSTALL

    to Ted….some tar files do not have the “configure” nor the “make” nor the “make install” files included after being uncompressed but don’t despair!!! There IS a way to install these files that have no configure or make or make install files! When you look further into the newly created folder that was created when you uncompressed a file with:
    ‘tar zxf file.tar.gz’ or the ‘tar zxf file.tgz’ or the ‘tar jxf file.tar.bz2’ or the ‘tar jxf file.tbz2’
    you will discover that there IS a way to install these files and if you would please tell us the name of the file that you are trying to install, we can help you install it, guaranteed, we can help you install it! It’s frustrating at first, sometimes, when a person is starting to learn about Unix-Linux, but after you use it for awhile, you will discover that the so called frustration of using Linux will turn into a learing experience and actually be fun instead of frustrating!

    Linux is people by a bunch of smart asses who believe that they are so cleaver that they can not stop
    looking in the mirror and telling themselves how cleaver they are and they can not stoop to help us dumbos.

    A little helpful tip(preparation) I think should have been included to make the tarball tackling a bit more possible. If you’re in a Ubuntu-based Linux OS, I would recommend doing the following installs and commands before you get to installing the tarball:

    sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall
    sudo apt-get install subversion git-core mercurial
    sudo chown $USER /usr/local/src
    sudo chmod u+rwx /usr/local/src
    sudo apt-get install apt-file
    sudo apt-file update

    Now your computer will be ready for it.

    How to tarball

    1. sudo apt-get install alien
    2. Navigate to the path where tarball is (e.g. cd /home/foo/bar)
    3. Run this command: fakeroot alien # -c

    Octothorpe will be either of these parameters, depending on distro

    Debian = -d
    Red Hat = -r
    Stampede = –to slp
    LSB = -l
    Slackware = -t
