I'm quite new to Ubuntu/Linux in general, I'm a mac user and have been able to double click/drag applications to install them.
I've recently been trying to set up some functionality on my Ubunutu 18.04 installed on my mac, and what a saga.
Read the readme, which says, use
make && makefile.
I've just extracted it on my download folder... I searched on how to install something from Github, and there's no generic answer.
My question is, how can I install this thing and get it onto my computer? https://github.com/p2rkw/xf86-input-mtrack#TapDragEnable
which file am I supposed to
makefile? Am I supposed to use a variable after make or just type make when I'm in the directory?
I have gone into
./configure --help. The readme file says, the next step is to use
makefile. I've type those commands in and a few more, but nothing happens.
I tried other
./configure commands e.g.
install-sh and this appears:
