i'm pretty new to using linux and have no clue where to start with installing OME! I am using Puppy ver 4.0 which comes with a package manager with which it downloads / unzips / installs new programs... but having not found OME on this list and downloaded the OME installer i now do not know what to do... can anyone give me a tutorial of some kind and/or a step-by-step?

installing Open Movie Editor from source is a little difficult, so the
recommended way to install it, is to use the packages available from the
distribution. OME however is a very young project, so it is not
available from a lot of distributions. :-( And those distributions that
have it, have often very out of date versions.
If you want to, you can give it a try however. First read the following
They are NOT specific for Open Movie Editor, they just explain the
general way of installing software from source-code in Linux.
After that you can look at the following guide:
It is not a step by step instruction, but it mentions all the main tasks
that need to be done, and maybe it can help you a little.
Currently the best supported Distribution for using Open Movie Editor is
OpenSuSE, with the packman repositories, it has always the newest binary
packages for OME, they are the most easy to install, but you need to use
the OpenSuSE distribution.
