compiling problem with libmobile


I unpacked the file and followed the txt file which said:
Installation
============

To compile run:
./autogen.sh
make
sudo make install

The problem is that no autogen.sh is in the package so I went to the site at github found the text of the file and put it into the directory

when I run it says no permission used it as root

the same happens

the file is
#!/bin/sh

olddir=`pwd`
srcdir=`dirname $0`
test -z "$srcdir" && srcdir=.

cd "$srcdir"

gprefix=`which glibtoolize 2>&1 >/dev/null`
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
glibtoolize --force
else
libtoolize --force
fi
aclocal -I m4
autoheader
automake --add-missing
autoconf

cd "$olddir"

if [ -z "$NOCONFIGURE" ]; then
$srcdir/configure "$@"
fi

Any ideas how to fix it maybe I can re edit the file?

Thanks for your help

cases like this, you really need to show us what project you are trying to compile and which version (link).
and in code tags, a list of all commands entered and full output received. don't paraphrase.

and preferably also an explanation WHY you think you need to compile this from source and why you need it at all.

Do you know any other program that does this?

Thanks for that will have to use a windows program and drag the files to my Linux Mint desktop. It requires iTunes and is taking ages to load on a windows having to go to Microsoft.

libmobiledevice is a Linux app so would have been better if I could compile it I have been stuck as the make requires Nettle 3.4 which I just cannot get to compile.

I wish libmobiledevice was in the repository for Mint as this looks to be a good program. I appears to be in Fedora and Ubuntu ones

Any ideas how I can go and get it from the Ubuntu repository?

Does not work it says on their site in search under Ubuntu it has libimobiledevice

The software source has Ubuntu/trusty set but

sudo apt install libimobiledevice does not find it

Any ideas?

if it's in ubuntu's repos then it should be in mint's also, becuase mint is built on it.
and it's
Code:
libimobiledevice
