How to install for the first time.

portable source
Use this command:
# tar zxvf tpad-1.3.tar.gz -C /usr/local
FreeBSD package
Use pkg_add(1):
# pkg_add tpad-1.3.tgz
Linux Slackware package
Use pkgtool(8) or the command line utility installpkg(8):
# installpkg tpad-1.3-noarch-1.tgz
Mandrake Linux RPM
Use rpm(8):
# rpm -ivh tpad-1.3-1mdk.noarch.rpm

How to upgrade from a previous version.

Important note: if you are upgrading to 1.3 from a previous version, please note that the configuration file (tpad.conf or .tpadrc) has changed a bit starting from version 1.2. You will have to manually merge the differences. It is better to start with the default config file shipped with version 1.3 and remake the changes there. This is also explained in tpad user's documentation.

portable source
Whenever you put the previous version files, delete them all (but save a copy of the global configuration file with another name if you want to preserve it). Then follow the install for the first time instructions.
FreeBSD package
First use pkg_delete(1) to delete the old version and then pkg_add(1) to install the new version. If you try to add the new version without first deinstalling the old, you will get an error. For example, to upgrade from 1.2 to 1.3 you need this two commands:
# pkg_delete tpad-1.2
# pkg_add tpad-1.3.tgz
You can also upgrade by using a single command, pkg_update(1):
# pkg_update tpad-1.3.tgz

Remember to use the new version of the configuration file which gets installed as /usr/local/etc/tpad.conf.sample for the reason noted above, otherwise tpad won't work.

Linux Slackware package
First remove the old package with removepkg(8) and then install the new using installpkg(8):
# removepkg tpad-1.2-noarch-1
# installpkg tpad-1.3-noarch-1.tgz
or use upgradepkg(8):
# upgradepkg tpad-1.3-noarch-1.tgz

Please remember to backup the global configuration file /etc/tpad.conf before upgrading if you have changed it. You will need to merge the changes into the newly installed configuration file, for the reason noted above. Logo Valid HTML 4.01! Petition for a Software Patent Free Europe
