As the question tells how should I install jsonccpp in ubuntu 14.04. I have downloaded the jsoncpp-src-0.5.0.tar.gz form sourceforge. Then I opened nautilus using sudo and copied,pasted and extracted the tar.gz file in
/opt. I have installed the cmake and used this code to install as suggested in the jsoncpp github
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debug -DBUILD_STATIC_LIBS=ON -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=OFF \ -DARCHIVE_INSTALL_DIR=. -G "Unix Makefiles"
But its giving this error
CMake Error: The source directory "/opt/jsoncpp-src-0.5.0" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt. Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
