Hi,
I need a little help. I'm new to linux and I have a wacom tablet that I want to get working. I found a driver and everything but when I type "make" into my console, after typing ./configure, it says: "bash: make: command not found". Please help me!

Install the make package for your distro?

I guess that ./configure gave some errors (something like checking for make: no). It's not suffiecient to run ./configure, you also need to check what it reports.

Which distro do you use?

Indeed there are no compilers, make, autoconf what-so-ever installed on a fresh ubuntu install.

sudo apt-get install make won't get you there. You need to use the following command:

Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
That will install make, gcc etc.
