Hi

I was just wondering how I can compile open source programs. E.g
I downloaded Open Movie Editor, its a .tar.gz file. How would I compile it?
I am running Ubuntu 9.10

Thanks In Advance

Just out of curiosity, is there a specific reason you didn't want to use the version available in the Software Center?
