I really need help installing the dependency of this, which is libmysql (here)

I really have no idea how to install it. The author requires me to put it in a specific directory, but I have had no luck doing that so far. He mentions that you need a .so file in the link above.

I believe this will do:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libmysql++3

If it still doesn't work, try also this:

sudo apt-get install libmysql++-dev

Does this install it to a specific directory? That is what I need. – TheSabreSlicer Jan 15 '14 at 21:15
@TheSabreSlicer It will be installed to the directory listed here: You can probably copy it if you need, but I don't see the point. It should be accessible there from any location, because it's on $PATH (I think). – GabrielF Jan 16 '14 at 14:49
