downloaded libMTP to Ubuntu, now how do I compile?


Hi
Need to use libMTP in order to access MTP devices.
So I grabbed the latest source files but haven't a clue how to compile what I have(see attached pic)
Running latest Ubuntu + MATE.

Did you see my reply in your other thread? There is absolutely no need to compile libmtp. It is in the Ubuntu repositories and can be installed with a couple of mouse clicks, or a simple terminal command.

If you have your heart set on compiling for whatever reason (perhaps you want to do it "the hard way" as an educational exercise?) then a good place to start is to read the file called README.

Here is a more detailed answer to the broader "how do I compile software in Ubuntu?" question: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingEasyHowTo

Please do not open a new question when you already have one on the same topic. You may not like the answers supplied, but that does not make them wrong nor require a new question.
