./configure no such file or directory?


I am trying to compile dekorator in KDE to install a theme I found on kde-look.org for Christmas:
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php...?content=70964
and the dekorator page:
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php...?content=87921
When I type in the ./configure command it says this:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
i KNOW that I am in the directory of the program. I extracted the tarball too.

Read the instructions on the page you linked to.
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php...?content=87921
I has explicit instructions. It uses cmake not autotools for building.

use automake tools to create configure.but first,you must create a configure.ac(or configure.in) by yourself.

It was already said that KDE uses CMake, not autotools. This is how you would usually compile a package that uses CMake:

Code:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make
The reason for creating the separate directory is so that you don't clutter the source directories with build-related files.

You are right! cmake will better.
