Ubuntu – Problem installing a package


I am a new user, trying to install a downloaded tar.bz2 package. I have extracted the files into a folder on my desktop. I am trying to follow the directions here: How do I install a .tar.gz (or .tar.bz2) file?

But they say "Make sure you read a file called INSTALL, INSTALL.txt, README, or something similar if one was extracted." But I don't see a file with that name. What should I do?

Best Answer

You have downloaded Monero GUI Linux 64-bit Lithium Luna, from official link I hope.

So you have monero-gui-linux-x64-v0.12.0.0.tar.bz2 file in your ~/Downloads folder. Then you can extract it by any known way.
The folder monero-gui-v0.12.0.0 will be created here.

This directory has start-gui.sh, you can click on it or run it from terminal with ./start-gui.sh.
