Thread: Trouble installing Celtx.tar.bz2

    Default Trouble installing Celtx.tar.bz2

    Hi I'm extremely new to Linux and I'm having trouble installing Celtx onto my computer since I have no experience with .tar.bz2 files.

    I tried to follow some online instructions and was successful in unpacking the package, but could not find any INSTALL or README files.

    When I try a ./configure, my response is:
    bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

    Would appreciate the help and much thanks in advance.

    Thanks, I wish I was more intuitive but it all is very overwhelming for me.

    I tried to look for some preconfigured rpms on that link and couldn't find any.

    Can I only use zypper if I find a made package?

    When I follow the instructions to make my own from the .tar.bz2 on that link I still get the "bash: ./configure: No such file or directory". This is after I've decompressed it and cd into the celtx folder.

    I couldn't find a .rpm either
    What exactly do you need this application for, I did a quick Google of it and get the picture, but just wondering ?

    Have you used it before in Linux?

    I have not used it in Linux before, my previous experience in using it was with Windows.

    I need the program because I use it to write scripts and screenplays and have many unfinished ones in the CeltX format.

    It is working fine.
    What you need to do is run it from the .sh file included in the archive. There is no need to install from source like (./configure, make, make install).

    Let's make things simple. Extract the downloaded Celtx.tar.bz2 through any software like Ark, File roller etc. After extraction open the extracted directory and open the file named 'Celtx' without quotes. If it ask you to run, click run to open it. By running that file it will automatically create symlinks to run-mozilla. And you do not need to do any thing. Just enjoy working in it.

    Is this what you are looking for?.


    Good luck!
