I see a CONFIGURE, autogen.sh and a makefile but I can't seem to figure out how to install this.

Can someone help explain what I need to do to install this?


first you will have to make the make file from makefile.am.For this

  1. Make sure you have autoconf, libglib2.0-dev(for AM_GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT macro), gtk-doc-tools installed sudo apt-get install autoconf libglib2.0-dev gtk-doc-tools

  2. goto the /vte-ng-0.42.4.a

  3. run command autoreconf

  4. run command automake --add-missing if you get any error

  5. Then run ./configure
  6. then you sould have a normal makefile so run make
  7. run sudo make install It should be installed
