Coffee Cup


I was looking for a program that would be equal to MS Frontpage. I came across Coffee Cup. http://www.coffeecup.com/linux/. I downloaded it, and there are no RPMs so I guess I have to complie it. What file do I compile, Coffee_install or installer.script?
My next question is, how do I compile any software that doesn't come with an RPM?

Thanks,
Michael

Try to look for a README or INSTALL file, these normaly tells you how to install.
Normally you go into the directory, where the files have been unpacked, and then run:
./configure
make
su -c 'make install'

At the last command, you are beeing asked for roots password, this is because you are writing to a directory, only root can write to.

That coffee cup editor is crap (but so is frontpage), if you want a straight html editor check out bluefish or quanta, if you want WYSIWYG editing check out mozilla composer, nvu, or quanta. You can also run dreamweaver upto the MX version under wine.

compiling

I am skipping the coffee cup install for right now. I am trying to compile gphoto2 for my digital camera.

As the readme states, I typed ./configure and I get an error stating:
configure: error: Library requirements (libgphoto2 >= 2.1.2) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
[kc2cfy@localhost gphoto2]$ make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

what do I do next?

The ./configure complain about not finding libgphoto2 at least version 2.1.2, so you should try to install it first.

You'll need two packages: libgphoto2 and libgphoto2-devel. First one is just the library packed so it can be used. Second file has more - it's needed to compile program using the library. You'll find the same scheme with many more packages. So when configure says you don't have a library but you know that you have it, check if the right devel package is installed.
