Got a problem to install Coffeecup HTML editor


Got RH 7.2
Can somebody help me ? When starting coffee_install it said that GNU make and GNU install have to be installed to start the install, I found make, but GNU install, is that GNU glibc ? I'm newbie and really I searched a lot, but now I really need help, and that's why http://www.linuxquestions.org
exist ( how lucky I am, all my friends use Microsoft WinBlowz ).

If somebody can help me, I would be grateful !!!

No problem

Did you do "./configure" first? Try that.

The "install" of "make install" is simply a target for make (like "make clean", or "make modules", etc.) and has to be defined by running the ./configure script (from the coffee directory)

So give that a shot first.


And of course, you do have to have "gcc" installed (GNU C compiler). But if you have make, I would suspect that you have gcc (run "gcc" to find out).

I tried, but ./configure does not exists in the Coffecup directory

( Well I'm a newbie, but I know that in graphical mode you don't see such files, but I looked at it under the terminal ... I tell you that to prevent another post ;-) )

Well I got gcc and make like you asked me.

Here are the files in the extracted Coffeecup directory :

cgi.dat default.config Editor.xpm installer.script sounds
Coffee default.config~ graphics installer.script~ splash.rc
Coffee_install dhtml.dat hot javascript.dat template
config.default Editor.png iface normal.rc user.rpm

Please help me, I just want to use Coffeecup, snifff.

Merde, it sure doesn't. That's because it already has been compiled, you just need to install it.

So, just for you, I downloaded "CoffeeLinux/tar.gz" to the "/coffee" directory in my home directory.

I extracted it using the built-in viewer/extracter in Midnight Commander (mc) and ran "Coffee_install" (I'm logged in as a user, not root)

That should be all that you need to do.

Oh, and since the directory you extract these files to is not going to be in the PATH, then you need to run the install command from the terminal like this:

./Coffee_install


the "./" tells bash to run the program found in this directory (otherwise it will look for it in the PATH, and it won't find it)

Excellent! I'll drop you a note (email) and you can tell how you like it

Actually, that got started at another linux forum that I frequent, when someone made the comment about not running as root. Back then, I didn't know enough to stay out of root (I wasn't all that good in linux).

I responded to him saying that as far as running as a user is concerned "you can just call me rootboy"

And here I am

I'll look at it ...

Why Aussie ? Are U an Australian ?
Why I am asking you this ? Well I've lived in the Netherlands for 7 yaers and a few years ago the brand 'Australian' became very famous, it was an sportswear brand, and eveybody called that 'an Aussie' in dutch 'een Aussie' !!! This sportswear was associated with the Hardcore music-style ( techno of course ).

Well, for all the dutch people on this forum, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about ;-)

C U Later,

my second name is actually : dj_franzie ( why ? ha ha ... )

Make sure your doing the "make install" as root. You can do "./configure" and "make" as user but "make install" needs to have write access to system directories.
