to confusing

i dont understand why i cant just step 1 download step 2 install from github. somtimes you dont need to set up remote repo or change code. somtimes you just need to install somthing without jumping through 500 hoops. i cant find any instructions on just downloading and installing. do i need to add a line to /etc/apt/sources.list. i would be greatful for any help thank you

I think that installing instructions are specific to each github repo. Usually there’s info in the readme file.
