I need Apache ActiveMQ-CPP library package for ubuntu. I know there is build for Fedora, but I can't find one for Ubuntu.

Do you know where I can download the package?

I've already build one with checkinstall but I'm not quite sure how portable it is.

you can download it from here


You can use the rpm package and change to deb via ALIEN

to install alien command on Ubuntu

 sudo apt-get install alien

To use alien command to convert rpm to deb file

 sudo alien pakage.rpm

Output would be: package.deb generated

you can use

sudo alien -i package.rpm 

this would convert the package from rpm to deb then install it automatically and then it would delete the source.

man alien

will show you how to use

Moreover see this link that talk how to build the ActiveMQ package

Thanks for the answer. Package provided by feodora contains only the library without header files. Do you know how can include them ? – AValchev Oct 13 '12 at 12:09
