Hello All, I am new to Linux.
I am trying to install fltk-2.0.x-alpha-r8570 on Ubuntu 10.04, I get following error during make process

root@programmer-desktop:/opt/fltk-2.0.x-r7680# make

Welcome to LQ.

sudo apt-get install xutils-dev libxi-dev

You will probably need the shared libraries :
./configure --enable-shared
( And without a --prefix= , fltk will be installed to /usr/local.
See README.unix ).

sudo apt-get install libfltk1.1-dev : Will install fltk-1.1.10.
