    Scroll down that page till the point where it says:
    "4. Installing from source"

    That is actually a tutorial for Ubuntu (a Debian-based distro), so I think it should work for the most part. You might just want to wait for a confirmation from someone else, since I am new to Linux, too. FYI, if you can find a .deb file for the same program, then it would be as simple as installing a program on Windows.

    Mayb you can start the installation by doing the following:
    cd /home/(username)/...
    sh setup
    OR (from within the install directory)

    If that doesnt work, post the output of ls -al from within the install directory.
