I'm trying to install https://github.com/ahodesuka/ahoviewer/, but apparently I need Linux and to install some dependencies. Now listen: I'm a Windows user, so I'm trying to build this on Windows.

I'm using WSL, and Ubuntu from Microsoft Store.

My first roadblock is that the dev states installing libcurl with openssl is good to avoid headaches, but I have no idea on how to do that. I already cloned the openssl repository and followed the instructions found here: https://www.openssl.org/source/gitrepo.html, but don't know how to proceed. I'm pretty sure this is really simple, but googling "build libcurl with openssl" gives me way too many different solutions on doing so, and I don't wanna screw this up

$ sudo apt install curl

let it run and then:

$ curl --version   

This shows up (mine is WSL2 on Windows 10 2004):

curl 7.58.0 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) **libcurl/7.58.0** **OpenSSL/1.1.1** zlib/1.2.11 libidn2/2.0.4 libpsl/0.19.1 (+libidn2/2.0.4) nghttp2/1.30.0 librtmp/2.3

libcurl (required to run curl) and OpenSSL is installed


first, you need to clone the repo. run this git clone https://github.com/ahodesuka/ahoviewer.git and then cd ahoviewer and them ./bootstrap. When command finishes run make. when it finishes building run make install to install it
