How can I install aclocal from the autotools bundle in Ubuntu 11.04? I tried to find it to no avail:

sudo apt-get install aclocal  
sudo apt-get install autotools-dev   
apt-cache search aclocal  
dpkg -S aclocal

You need to install automake since m4 is a dependency:

sudo apt-get install autotools-dev

Then install aclocal via apt-get

    In Ubuntu 12.04 that is not enough. Try automake. – Adam Ryczkowski Apr 26 '13 at 8:58

I had to install automake instead of aclocal directly with 11.10.


sudo apt-get install autotools-dev
sudo apt-get install automake

  • I did this for 12.04 LTS. The weird thing is I'm pretty sure I was building, in this case, the linaro android images using the same makefiles on this platform. I'm not sure why I need to reinstall aclocal now. – dturvene Jan 7 '14 at 18:56
