    Program Installation Help

    Trying to install UFRaw - downloaded the tar.gz file - when I double click it asks me to extract the files. Every time I try to put them somewhere it tells me I don't have permission? I'm the only person who uses this laptop, so why isn't it allowing me to install?

    Why does Lubuntu/Linux/Ubuntu make installing stuff so difficult - not everyone's a programmer.

    Any basic simple help would be appreciated.

    Why are you doing it that way? Quite unnecessary. Simply install ufraw from the repositories using whatever package manager is used in Lubuntu or whatever Ubuntu flavour you are using.

    Couldn't be simpler.
