After you install the dependencies that you can proceed to the install.

$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make
# make install

Depending on what distribution you are running Synaptic Package Manager can install it for you.

-::-That will save you from having to build it and run the compilation.-::-

I hate make errors.
That error happens for 2 reasons generally.

The makefile 'is missing' or you could be in the wrong directory before running the commands to start the compilation.

What distribution are you running?

I'm in the downloads directory trying to install "minisign-master" verify tool for dnscrypt-proxy.

minisign install

$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake .. STUCK HERE, OUPUT: CMake Error: The source directory "/home/blue/Downloads" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

$ make
# make install

Looks like cmake is missing:-

I'm having the same problem:

Code:
Linuxcat@fractcat:~$ cd /home/Linuxcat/Downloads/jedisct1-minisign-4dcfeb8/
Linuxcat@fractcat:~/Downloads/jedisct1-minisign-4dcfeb8$ ls
CMakeLists.txt  LICENSE  README.md  share  src
Linuxcat@fractcat:~/Downloads/jedisct1-minisign-4dcfeb8$ mkdir build
Linuxcat@fractcat:~/Downloads/jedisct1-minisign-4dcfeb8$ cd build
Linuxcat@fractcat:~/Downloads/jedisct1-minisign-4dcfeb8/build$ cmake
bash: cmake: command not found
After installing cmake I have the same error as you.


What distribution are you running actinide?

Check and see if Mint will install it for you via the cmd-line.

Code:
sudo apt-get install minisign
IF NOT, does Synaptic have minisign?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's not you as I'm getting the same thing you are.
Sorry you're having trouble. I know how frustrating compiling software can be.

Code:
Linuxcat@fractcat:~/Downloads/jedisct1-minisign-4dcfeb8/build/build$ make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

What doesn't make sense is CMakeLists.txt is in the directory along with the build, share and src files.
