Help me to install sysinfo:/ I think i got source.. :(


Hello.
I'm on Kubuntu (KDE 4.2) 8.10

I wanted this KDE App > http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show...?content=98808

I downloaded it, unarchived and got 2 folders: po and src and readme document that contains pretty much nothing..

see? http://i40.tinypic.com/2j46fpc.png

The question is.. how do i install it now?? I don't see any installation files..

The site you linked has the installation instructions...

But first: check with your package manager to see if you can install it that way.

Note that you will be needing the kde4 devel stuff, to what degree I don't know. So it might be a pain to install this if you don't compile kde4 from source yourself. Or you just might need to install a few -dev or -devel package in your distro.

This is a kio-slave, so try also looking for extra packages for kioslaves in your package manager, and also read the info in that page from kde-look.org that you linked above.

More than probably, someone has already packaged that for debian, and if not, you can always try to convert an rpm using a tool like alien. You could also request a deb package in that thread.

Install procedure:
- unpack source code,
- create build directory,
- in build directory run “cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config –prefix` .. “,
- as root run make and make install.


- I unpacked
- What's a build directoy? How do i create it?
- What prefix??
- make says "No target specified and no makefile found"


I've got nowhere so far..

As said, you are going to need the kde4 devel packages. The makefile will be created by cmake, then you should be able to "make". Another entirely different thing is whether it will be able to complete or not.

Yes. It failed. I suggest posting in the kde-apps.org thread. This is most likely due to some problem in the sources. It's not uncommon, I've seen it many times, just google for "Unknown CMake command kde4_add_plugin".

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?se...ywords=sysinfo

Its already in the ubuntu repos. apt-cache search sysinfo

You best bet is to learn how to use APT.
