You need to have the dependencies installed before you can compile the source.
Code:
./waf configure
will tell you which dependencies are not installed.
Then you first need to install them.

Kind regards

Do you understand the concept of "current directory"?

Did you read the link that I posted in post #8?

An archive is not a directory.

You shouldn't be trying to install the package from the source in the first place, since your distribution (Ubuntu) provides a package for it. You really should read the documentation for your distribution, which will tell you (amongst other things) how to install packages using the package management system.

# 26 :

guitarix is included in the universe repo, Ubuntu 11.04
http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/natty/guitarix

'sudo apt-get install guitarix' will do.

This is by far the easiest way to install it ... I just found out it's in the Fedora repos, also. Sweet!
