Ubuntu – Installing Perforce client on Ubuntu


I am trying to install perforce on my Ubuntu machine, after I untar the .tgz file, I get two folders lib and bin. Where would be the executable or how do I install it correctly?

It's actually pretty easy, you just copy (or move) everything in the bin directory to /usr/bin and everything in the lib directory to /usr/lib (recursively):

tar xvfz p4v.tgz
cd p4v-2010.2.317255
sudo cp bin/* /usr/bin/
sudo cp -r lib/* /usr/lib/
