  Installation:

    If you want to compile and install correctly the application from the sources tarball you should follow this simple steps:
1- decompress a tarball :
     if you have downloaded a format .tar.gz enter this:    tar xvfz  kbilliards-0.x.tar.gz
     if you have downloaded a format .tar.bz2 enter this:  bunzip2 kbilliards-0.x.tar.bz2 ; tar xvf kbilliards-0.x.tar
2- compile :
     go into directory of kbilliards
     do this: ./configure 
     or:  ./configure --prefix= here directory path of your KDE3
     if all is goes ok ,now you can compile it, enter:  make
3- install :
     now you must become user root with the command "su" then enter: make install

  Note:

    The program is released with all source code, it is under the terms of General Public License GNU read the file COPYING into the tarball; I have used KDevelop, Integrated Development Environment, that can be found at www.kdevelop.org the graphical desktop environment KDE for Linux / Unix can be obtained at www.kde.org  the libray QT can be found at www.trolltech.com .
   However if you have a recent linux copy, you should have KDE 3.x with QT3 .x


 if you find any bugs or you feel like sending suggestions for improvements or anything at all, send me an email !  I will be happy to improve it. :-)
