Linux "installation" is just adding the location of a file to the PATH environment variable after you ready the executable for a program. If the shell can find an executable file with the same name as your command on a directory listed in the PATH variable, it will execute that file.
Here, you're adding the path to the
trinity binaries to an environment variable named
TRINITY_HOME. Let's say you downloaded the
tar.gz file to
~/Downloads and then built it, the binary would be in some location under your current working directory (
~/Downloads/Trinity=*). I'd recommend running
find $PWD -name "Trinity" -type f. The manual says you should see the file in the directory you extracted the
tar.gz contents to, so the find may not even be required.
