I was wondering about generic installations of all applications in linux. And what that means? Well, when I was using windows I knew that if I want to install an application I am double-clicking the .exe file and then next,next,next.
In linux, I have understood that maybe there is a common (not generic) way to install any application. Installing from source maybe? Well is there any step by step method that can be used to install application like in windows or not?
I am asking because I do not want to keep asking the google, how to? So, I have managed to install recently from source freecad from this guide
and I think that it would be a very nice start as common method, right?
But the thing then is where to find the right source and when an application has a very unique method of installation!
