Because I'd like to use the Gedit LaTeX plugin that is unfortunately not available for Gedit 3.2 in the repositories, I want to compile it myself. The most recent version you can get on http://git.gnome.org/browse/gedit-latex does support GNOME 3 's Gedit.
In the documentation it says:
Due to a limitation on reading Settings, the plugin currently must be installed in the same prefix as gedit. For instance if you are using gedit 3 from your distribution, you need to do
./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
If you are using a 64bit distribution, you also need to pass
That's why I
cded into the directory that contains the code, and tried to run
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64. Unfortunately, this does not work, giving the error message:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
Having checked the folder, there indeed is no file
configure, but only
configure.ac. What can I do to compile this plugin?
