HOW TO INSTALL CUTE Text Editor


How do you install CUTE User-friendly Text Editor
Do I need to install QT and Scintilla and python first? I'm using slackware 9.1...

well did you try to install it yet?
if so what were the errors ?
if there is no errors and it does install, then that more so will mean the requirements are already there ....

Straight from the INSTALL file (you did read it I hope):
Quote:
INSTALL for CUTE

In order to compile CUTE yourself download the
QextScintilla source code ( http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk )
and the QextMDI source code ( http://www.geocities.com/gigafalk/qextmdi.htm ).
In most cases the python libs and header files are already installed,
if not download the python source code from www.python.org.

The PATH environment variable must include the QT bin dir, normally installed in /usr/lib/qt3/bin/, in order to find qmake.
Make sure QTDIR contains the path to the QT installation
( i.e. QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt3 under SuSE ) and QMAKESPEC contains the dir path
to the qmake definitions (for example: QMAKESPEC=/usr/lib/qt3/mkspecs/linux-g++/ under SuSE).
Compile all downloaded libs and install them.
Make sure qmake is in your PATH. It is installed in $QTDIR/bin
where QTDIR is the install dir of QT.

so when I try to run ./configure it says that
"QMAKESPEC not set"
Sorry I really don't know how to configure this editor to compile and I have read the Readme but I'm still clueless on how to do it.....
