How do I install anjuta after download?


I'm new to ubuntu and gnome. I want to install the anjuta package I just downloaded. Where do I drop the archive file and how do I proceed to install it for system wide use?

Thanks

Well, I'm pretty sure that Ubuntu uses apt get, so I think you just type

su
<fill in root password when asked>
apt get anjuta

in a terminal. That will automatically download the needed files from the internet, download anything else you need, and install it.

If you need to install from the source file you downloaded for some reason, you can do it the hard way. You can unpack the archive anywhere you like. Then open a terminal and run:

cd <inside the folder that was extracted from the tarball>
./configure
make
su
<give root password when asked>
make install

That should be correct, but after you extract the archive, inside there will be a file named INSTALL. Read it for instructions.

PatrickNew, thanks for the reply.

I tried the apt-get like this:
bweil@bunt350:~/Desktop$ sudo apt-get anjuta
E: Invalid operation anjuta
bweil@bunt350:~/Desktop$ sudo apt-get install anjuta
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package anjuta
bweil@bunt350:~/Desktop$
Then I tried the downloaded archive, like this:
bweil@bunt350:~/Desktop$ cd anjuta-2.0.2-i486-1.tgz_FILES
bweil@bunt350:~/Desktop/anjuta-2.0.2-i486-1.tgz_FILES$ ls
etc install usr
bweil@bunt350:~/Desktop/anjuta-2.0.2-i486-1.tgz_FILES$ ls -al
total 20
drwxr-xr-x 5 bweil bweil 4096 2006-10-29 21:40 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 bweil bweil 4096 2006-10-29 21:40 ..
drwxr-xr-x 3 bweil bweil 4096 2006-05-15 18:34 etc
drwxr-xr-x 2 bweil bweil 4096 2006-05-16 07:35 install
drwxr-xr-x 9 bweil bweil 4096 2006-05-16 07:37 usr
bweil@bunt350:~/Desktop/anjuta-2.0.2-i486-1.tgz_FILES$ ./config
bash: ./config: No such file or directory
bweil@bunt350:~/Desktop/anjuta-2.0.2-i486-1.tgz_FILES$
In the install folder, there was a script called doinst.sh, but the permissions are not set to execute.

Any other ideas?

Thanks.

ps. I saw the misspelling of configure above and tried again with ./configure and got the same result.

ok, well, where did you get your package from? From the looks of the contents of that archives, I would guess that your tarball is a precompiled package, not a source tarball. If I remember correctly, slackware uses .tgz in its package format.

Note: If you see an architecture attached to a filename, it is precompiled. (like i386, i686, x86_64, ppc, etc.) Try a tarball from here: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/a...ar.gz?download

But first, hopefully a Ubuntu user will find this and tell you how to configure apt to make it work, because if you can get it, that way is much easier.

Btw, looking at their webpage, Anjuta says 1.2.4a is the last stable version. Are you aware you're using a development version? Nothing wrong with it, but you should know. If you want to use version 2.0.2 then use this tarball.
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/a...ar.gz?download

PatrickNew, thanks.

Ok on the precompiled; I assumed that since I wasn't up to the task of contributing to the development of this package, I didn't need source.

Ok too on the stable vs development versions. I didn't notice it when I downloaded it because the project page said it was released. I didn't recognize the distinction between development release and stable release.

Since then, I was looking at the dependencies listed there and have begun trying to install some of them since my standard ubuntu distribution did not include development packages. I see now how the ./configure was meant to work, but I still struggling through the first install, gdl-0.6.1. Apparently, there are other packages missing that I have to install before this one.

I've found some of these other missing packages in the ubuntu application package manager gui application and gotten a little further each time. I'll slog on until I get stuck again.

Thanks again.

no problem. I would hope a ubuntu user will find this and tell you how to set up apt to install it, because that is much easier, and you will have to configure apt before long, but you can compile from source.

I found a website describing how to install with Automatix, which appears to be an apt frontend. Try opening it, and you should be able to select packages. Pick System --> Programming --> Anjuta. If that doesn't work, I'd be happy to help you through installing from source.

Ok. Progress. I was poking around in the ubuntu Synaptic Package Manager ( gui form of apt?) and found an option called "Universe" that was not turned on.

To make a long story short, I found anjuta there and installed. The package manager identified dependencies and downloaded other packages as well.

I got it running and after downloading a few other things ( like make ), I was able to compile and run the "Hello World" tutorial example using anjuta.

Now, I'm trying to resolve some missing glade-c++ headers.

Thanks!
