Until I can figure out what is wrong I'm stuck right along with you.

I'll look up the errors after dinner and if I find a solution I'll post it.

Maybe RandomTroll will know what is holding things up.

I just downloaded and installed libsodium and minisign in accord with their READMEs' instructions without a hitch.

minisign installed itself in the minisign-master directory; is /home/blue/Downloads really where it is for you-all?

That's inspiring.

If you downloaded from the link that OP posted how exactly did you download it?

I had trouble finding where to download it on that page.

It's not in the same place as yours but I didn't download it from Github because I had trouble with it.

It just downloaded for me so I'll give it another go and let you know how it went.

No, sorry it's still giving me issue's. The dependencies are installed.

Code:
Linuxcat@fractcat:~/Downloads/minisign-master/build$ make install
[100%] Built target minisign
Install the project...
-- Install configuration: "MinSizeRel"
-- Up-to-date: /usr/local/bin/minisign
CMake Error at cmake_install.cmake:42 (file):
  file INSTALL cannot set permissions on "/usr/local/bin/minisign"


Makefile:66: recipe for target 'install' failed
make: *** [install] Error 1

dpkg-query: package 'minisign' is not installed

I'm sorry actinide I'm out of ideas.

OpenSSL is another tool you can use to to sign files and verify digital signatures.

That's the error I get if I try to install as non-root.

Code:
Linuxcat@fractcat:~$ whereis minisign
minisign: /usr/local/bin/minisign


It's installed.

When I try to launch it via cmd-line I get a page of options with flags.

cmake .. STUCK HERE, OUPUT: CMake Error: The source directory "/home/blue/Downloads" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
you NEED to be in the folder WITH THE SOFTWARE YOU NEED TO BUILD !!!

not some other folder

if you are not in the folder with the software you need to build there is NOTHING to build

i am guessing you did not bother to READ!!!! the github page you linked to !!!
https://github.com/jedisct1/minisign
THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE THERE ON THAT FIRST PAGE

install "libsodium" and "cmake" FIRST

I suspected that you were in the wrong directory in post #8 and John VV confirmed it.

https://jedisct1.github.io/minisign/

Minisign is maintained by jedisct1.
