OK, Here's an example for installing as root (you don't need to be root to run the program, just to install NetLogger).
1) First become root by either logging in as root or using "su" or "sudo" (if sudo has been set up for your account).
2) After you've unpacked the outer tar archive, run the install script, e.g.:
3) The first prompt will ask for a NetLogger install directory. An appropriate location would be:
4) The second prompt will ask for a location for the netlogger shell script. An appropriate location would be:
Once you've done that, the install script should install netlogger. Let me know of any errors. Once it is installed you can just type:
at the command prompt to start netlogger. You should start a terminal window from the GUI to get a command prompt (that will ensure that your DISPLAY environment variable is set appropriately). It's also possible to set up a netlogger launcher so that netlogger can be directly launched from the GUI, but the instructions to do that vary depending on which GUI you are using.
In the future (e.g. when a new version of NetLogger is released that you want to upgrade to), if you want to upgrade your netlogger version, you'll need to remove the old version first. You should do the following as root:
rm -rf /usr/local/share/netlogger
and then follow the above instructions to install the new version.
