I am trying to install gsl 2.5 on Ubuntu 18.04. Followed the following steps:
1. Downloaded the latest gsl pkg from http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/gsl/. Unzipped the tarball with archive manager, a folder named 'gsl-release-2-5' is created, opened the terminal and cd to this folder.
$ cd /home $ cd ~/gsl_pkg/gsl-release-2-5 $ sudo apt install libgsl-dev $ ./configure error:: bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
Received the error above.
What steps should I take now to mitigate the situation and install gsl 2.5 successfully?
Also executed the cmd :
$ autoreconf -i -f -v
gave the reult as follows-
autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext
autoreconf: running: aclocal --force
autoreconf: configure.ac: tracing
autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Libtool
