Hello all,

I'm a nOObe in every sense of the word. My experience is one week old. I managed to install a working Debian on my computer and 2 working programs using .DEB files. So far I find Debian user friendly and many things are easy to find after a bit of puzzling.

That is not so the case when compiling is needed. I find many websites with instructions, but they all talk double Dutch to me. So I turned to this forum and to beginners questions. It is a bit disappointing to see sarcasm about some questions that might be Obvious to the professionals here. There is no lack of information on the web, but it's hard for beginners to understand the jargon.

So I kindly like to ask to have mercy with us beginners. If you do, who knows some of us may turn out to be professionals in the end.

And what has compiling to do with the OP's question?

I'm not an IT professional either btw.
