Sub_title: Installation help

Looking for an easy way to install Synergy on Puppy Linux and programs from source in general (tar.gz files). Also please use easy to understand language with no steps assumed easy as I am not familiar with a Linux environment

I am lost on how to get Synergy to work on Puppy. After 3 or so hours of trying to install the source files (.tar.gz) I have tried installing the .deb and .rpm (ubuntu and fedora packages) which both asked me if I wanted to install which I said yes and both put a entry into the Utilities menu with not icon, just the word synergy, however clicking on it does not bring the program up.

I tried doing this method I found on the forums: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=18448; yet I don't think I was technical enough to do it right and wasn't able to get it running. For the source files I looked through the readme and it said to use cmake so I tried installing that through the .sh file by running that script. Then I found out that I had to turn Puppy into a compiling environment so I went to the SLickpet SFSget and clicked the GNU Compiler devx_slacko_5.3.3.sfs which made the terminal able to perform the "make" command.

Another site I was following along with was:
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/compiling and http://synergy-foss.org/tracker/projects/synergy/wiki/Compiling
and I tried downloading all the dependencies from the second link:
GNU Make
GCC (2.95 and up)
X11R4 and up (headers and libraries)
Xtst (e.g. libXtst-devel)
but couldn't find the last two.

Before installing cmake I had ./configure say permission denied then after installing it goes through a set of lines but ends with configuring incomplete. So I reset the installation for puppy and pressed the devx button right away and followed this:

wget http://www.someurl.com/distro/src/package_name.tar.gz
tar xzvf package-name.tar.gz
cd package-name
./configure --prefix=/usr --build=i486-t2-linux-gnu
new2dir make install

this made me a small .pet file that I installed yet there is not file to be found.

I have also tried:
./configure CFLAGS="-mtune=native -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer" CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}" --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --host=i486-pc-linux-gnu
from http://puppylinux.org/wikka/compiling
but the make install said something about not being able to target "install".

So that might be too much info, but I just wanted to be sure most everything was there. I am looking for an easy way to install Synergy and if someone could give an easy way to install other files from source (tar.gz) on puppy linux. Thanks in advance.
