Installing Liblo

I'm trying to install Rosegarden on a thinkpad t22 running slackware linux 12.1. When I tried I found I needed dssi, which in turn needed Liblo. When I try to install Liblo, I get the following error.

make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/.local/share/Trash/files/liblo-0.25/lo'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/.local/share/Trash/files/liblo-0.25/lo'
Making install in @DOXYGEN@
/bin/sh: line 17: cd: @DOXYGEN@: No such file or directory
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

I'm a newbie, former dilettante who decided to wipe Windows from my computer. Can anyone help me with this? I've installed Doxygen- and am clueless

Try slackbuilds. It is maintained by robby workman who also has a significant part in developing slackware.

You can also install rosegarden via slackbuilds

It seem that rosegarden is rather dependency intensive.

This how you install with slackbuild:
What you do is download the source code (the program itself) and the slack build for the source code.

Extract the slackbuild.
Copy the source code to the extracted slackbuild.
cd to the slackbuild.
run the slackbuild file. (./<source>
You just created a slackware package and it is located in the /tmp directory
You can easily install and remove the package.
installpkg /tmp/<package name>.tgz

/root is not meant for compiling, and certainly not ".local"
and Trash is for trash only.
Logging in as root makes your system unsafe, isn't recommended.

Compiling should be made in /home/okos/tmp or somewhere else
in /home/okos/

"libio" versions 0.23 and 0.25 will compile with no errors
on a clean install of Slackware 12.1
