What do you do when an utility is not packaged on your Linux distro?

Package managers make life really easy that many people have forgotten what issues had been like within the olden days when getting a chunk of software program to work together with your system was an actual check of endurance and endurance.

But even so, not each piece of software program comes readily packaged on your distribution of selection. Maybe you are fortunate and it is a single file binary (from a trusted, verifiable supply solely, we hope!). Maybe it is a .tar.gz file that you just must decompress. Perhaps it comes as a Flatpak or Snap file which is able to work throughout distributions. Or perhaps you are going to find yourself compiling from supply. May the dependency gods smile upon your efforts!

Whatever you resolve to do, we hope it brings a bit little bit of appreciation for the onerous work that the bundle maintainers who hold your Linux distribution do day by day as a way to make the consumption of software program simpler.

Every time you yum, dnf, zypper, apt, apt-get, or pacman, we hope you may take a second to be grateful for the tireless packagers, and perhaps everybody occasionally, wish them a thank you.
