this tarball to /usr/local. Do not install in /usr. /usr is
under the control of the package manager and should not have data
dumped there manually. Extracting the tarball to /usr
might break future installations of a repository fldigi package.
Extracting to /usr/local will provide you with all the files that would
have resulted from a ./configure, make and make install. This
will give you menu entries and icons. It will not install any
libraries required for the fldigi application, such as libsndfile,
You may need to do the extract / install as root or using the sudo command, depending on your particular distribution.
$ mkdir tarballs
$ cd tarballs
$ wget http://www.w1hkj.com/downloads/fldigi/fldigi-3.21.3.bin.tgz
$ cd /usr/local
$ sudo tar xzf $HOME/tarballs/fldigi-3.21.3.bin.tgz
Will create a place to save the tarball, download it, and extract to
the desired /usr/local directories /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/shared
