    1) do a search in your package manager to see if it's there - that's the
    best and easiest way.

    2) if not included, then download. If it is a tar.gz file then put it
    somewhere (I like /opt/whatevertheappis) and then do tar 'xzvf
    nameoftargzfile' then go down one directory and start reading.
