Have you downloaded a zipped/compressed package and unzipped it or extracted its files?
Usually this should help:
Check whether the configure file is present or not:
If yes then run it as you did. Then you can run this command:
If the configure script is not present then read the "read me" type of file or some "guide or installation guide" that should be shipped with the package you have downloaded. Check what it says.
First of all, thanks for taking the time to try and help me.
The program I've been trying to install is MusE, an open source MIDI/Audio sequencer. I followed the READ ME file's directions, creating a sub directory for the program, which I named "dls," where I extracted the files. Then I followed the directions under the "Configuration" heading:
There are a few different ways to configure (notice the two dots):
Type "cmake -i .." to run in step-by-step 'Wizard' mode.
Or type "cmake -L .." to see options, then compose "cmake <options>" yourself.
Some <options> are:
<type> can be blank (to reset a previous cached type to 'empty'),
debug, release, RelWithDebInfo and MinSizeRel.
Release is recommended, to get optimizations.
If no CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE is given at all, cmake uses either the previous
cached value, or else 'empty' (plain or default system optimizations).
The installation <prefix> where the program is installed.
The default is to install in /usr/local.
Or type "ccmake .." (if you have it - text-mode GUI). It may be blank so hit
'C' to first-time configure. Fiddle with yer options if ye so desire, then hit
'C' to configure then 'G' to generate and exit, or 'Q' to quit without
Or there is also a desktop GUI for cmake called cmake-gui.
After which I tried compiling the program:
After configuration, while still in the build directory,type:
Then I tried to install:
After compiling, type:
make install (as root)
sudo make install
This is where I had to stop because I got a message:
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop.
What am I doing wrong?
