What are you trying to install?

is it available in Synaptic package manager?


If it's a program written in python, then there may be a file called
"setup.py". If there is then open a terminal, cd to that directory, and
then type:

python setup.py install

(you may need to do "sudo" before it) - that will normally automatically
compile any extensions written in C

hope that helps.
