That was the command I ran the Mint8 so it should
be the same for you but I make no promise that it is. Try typing the command manually and use the autocomplete function as you go.
i just copy and pasted what you said =/ damn, --install indeed looks like it doesnt work , i tried typing help, but still... nothing :
--install: command not found
:~$ install --help
Usage: install [OPTION]... [-T] SOURCE DEST
or: install [OPTION]... SOURCE... DIRECTORY
or: install [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SOURCE...
or: install [OPTION]... -d DIRECTORY...
This install program copies files (often just compiled) into destination
locations you choose. If you want to download and install a ready-to-use
package on a GNU/Linux system, you should instead be using a package manager
like yum(1) or apt-get(1).
In the first three forms, copy SOURCE to DEST or multiple SOURCE(s) to
the existing DIRECTORY, while setting permission modes and owner/group.
In the 4th form, create all components of the given DIRECTORY(ies).
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
--backup[=CONTROL] make a backup of each existing destination file
-b like --backup but does not accept an argument
-C, --compare compare each pair of source and destination files, and
in some cases, do not modify the destination at all
-d, --directory treat all arguments as directory names; create all
components of the specified directories
-D create all leading components of DEST except the last,
then copy SOURCE to DEST
-g, --group=GROUP set group ownership, instead of process' current group
-m, --mode=MODE set permission mode (as in chmod), instead of rwxr-xr-x
-o, --owner=OWNER set ownership (super-user only)
-p, --preserve-timestamps apply access/modification times of SOURCE files
to corresponding destination files
-s, --strip strip symbol tables
--strip-program=PROGRAM program used to strip binaries
-S, --suffix=SUFFIX override the usual backup suffix
-t, --target-directory=DIRECTORY copy all SOURCE arguments into DIRECTORY
-T, --no-target-directory treat DEST as a normal file
-v, --verbose print the name of each directory as it is created
--preserve-context preserve SELinux security context
-Z, --context=CONTEXT set SELinux security context of files and directories
--help display this help and exit
--version output version information and exit
The backup suffix is `~', unless set with --suffix or SIMPLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX.
The version control method may be selected via the --backup option or through
the VERSION_CONTROL environment variable. Here are the values:
none, off never make backups (even if --backup is given)
numbered, t make numbered backups
existing, nil numbered if numbered backups exist, simple otherwise
simple, never always make simple backups
Ill google to see what i can find out
