If your build from source is successful, you can make a Debian (Ubuntu) package (.deb) for future use:

* Install package tools:

sudo apt-get install checkinstall

* Rebuild package using "checkinstall":

cd /path/to/extracted/package
sudo make
sudo checkinstall

* Keep the resulting ".deb" file for future use. It can later be installed using:

sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb

Note: These are basic instructions that may not always work. Some packages require additional dependencies and optional parameters to be specified in order to build them successfully.
