make install problem


Opensuse 11.0 KDE 3.59

I needed a program that would print business cards [used to use MS Publisher [.pub]]. Did a search and found gLabels and it was in repository as ver 2.04. It worked well up to the printing part. Did a bit more reading to find that ver 2.25 was supposed to have resolved this problem, only problem is that it need to be compiled [no .rpm available]. Got all the requirements and needed dependencies sorted out and did configure and make commands, but when I tried to do make install,[as root] I received these errors:

/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `glabels-C.omf.out': No such file or directory
make[4]: *** [install-data-hook-omf] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/labud/glabels225/help/C'
make[3]: *** [install-data-am] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/labud/glabels225/help/C'
make[2]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/labud/glabels225/help/C'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/labud/glabels225/help'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
I followed the directions to compile on this site:
http://glabels.sourceforge.net/doc/install-src/

Anyone can give me any info on these errors? and where I might begin to fix things?
I have googled to no avail. I did find one reference re: spaces in files names, but mine have no spaces.
I searched in this forum and altho' I found other people with compile probs, they did not match this one.
Thank You

Write the complete set of commands before you did "make install". seems to be there was an error while "make" and the target is not built in your case.

commands

These are the commands I used. I tried them twice, once from a folder on my desktop and once from a folder in /home.


$ tar xvfz glabels-2.2.5.tar.gz
$ cd glabels225
$ ./configure
$ make
$ su
Password:
# make install

I don't understand why make is locating the file `glabels-C.omf.out' at /usr/bin/install???
It seems that this is the bug in the make file. Post on the glabel website, or otherwise try to create the file "touch glabels-C.omf.out" and see the result.

I am not able to compile it on my PC, because of some issues. But I will surely try it if I get some time.

I have posted at the glabels mailing list thru sourceforge.net

While I am waiting for their reply, how would I go about creating this file `glabels-C.omf.out' and where would it be placed?


in -
/usr/bin/install

or - in the unpacked glabels file?

I heard back from gLabels mailing list and it was suggested that I install something called 'scrollkeeper' and to retry the make, make install. I just deleted everything and started from scratch. It would not install from a folder on my desktop, so I deleted everything again and ran it from my folder [labud] within the home folder and it worked.
The install worked anyway, have not tried the program out yet,
Thank You

It's a great little program for simplicity in making labels and business cards.
