Usually there is a 'README' or 'INSTALL' file in the folder, once you
have downloaded and extracted all the files.

Often, the instructions consist of opening up a command prompt, going
into the folder and typing:
sudo make install

(If the first line gives an error, usually the next step is to do sudo
apt-get install (name of missing package)-dev
You may well also need a sudo apt-get install build-essentials at the start).

Hope that's of help to someone out there,
