I am very very unfamilar with installing from source, and the included INSTALL instructions are very vague and I tried following the commands but don't think all the proper info is given.
here is the primary instructions given.
To compile Minitube you need at least Qt 4.5, Qt >= 4.6 is recommended. The following Qt modules are needed: core, gui, network, xml, phonon, dbus
On a Debian or Ubuntu system type: sudo apt-get install build-essential qt4-dev-tools libphonon-dev
Run: $ qmake and then: $ make Beware of the Qt3 version of qmake! If things go wrong try running qmake-qt4 instead.
A word about Phonon on Linux
To be able to actually watch videos you need a working Phonon setup. Please don't contact me about this, ask for help on your distribution support channels.
Installing on Linux
Run: $ sudo make install This is for packagers. End users should not install applications in this way.
The bold is simply because in the notes text file it has has marks for some reason. But to me this is very vague. I have the entire contents of the source file extracted into a "minitube" folder in my home dir. but I have tried running these qmake commands that are mentioned every way I can think of. And in every directory I can think of that makes sense. Still no use. And I'm not sure if I have the lastest version of Qt (4.5 or 4.6) installed as mentioned, not sure how to find out or how to upgrade as its not listed in my update manager.
Any tips would be much appreciated.
Side note, I have already ran the most recent version of Minitube previous to this one with no issues for a long time installed with simple apt-get from ppa. So I'm not sure what the issue is here.
Thank you and God Bless.
