Compiling software in Ubuntu

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is there any way to do this easier? I tried doing it using the terminal + UbuntuForums and I can't get it to work.

I am trying to install FahMon but all it gives me a tarball with a bunch of random files in it.

Can you list these "random files"?
If there's a file called "Makefile", run "make && make install" (or sudo make install), if there's a file called "configure", run "./configure && make && make install" (or sudo make install). If there's a file called "configure.ac", they are evil for forcing you to use autoconf and you should probably just look for a Deb (or run autoconf && ./configure && make && make install)

I seem to have figured it out, but now it says I need to install wxWidgets. What is this and how do I install it?

WxWidgets is a widget toolkit. You're going to need a -dev package to use it in compiled programs. Hmmm... packages.ubuntu.com is down, let me find them in Synaptic...

libwxgtk2.8-dev (unless it requires 2.6, adjust accordingly)
sudo apt-get install that and you should be able to make.
