hi all,

I've installed zotero standalone 3.0beta1 on Ubuntu, from a tar.gz 
package. (http://www.zotero.org/support/3.0) Everything works, and I've 
added a menu entry. But as it stands, it's installed localy, for me 
only, and not for all users on the system. This doesn't really bother 
me, in that I'm the only user of this laptop, bt out of interest, is 
there any way of installing tar.gz packages system wide?

(I'm on ubuntu 10.10, btw)
