This question already has an answer here:

I downloaded cruft-0.2.tar.gz and extracted the files into a directory. Here is the list of files:

COPYING        cruft.1  cruft.doc  INSTALL   keygen.c  packing.list
cruft-0.2.lsm  cruft.c  cruft.h    keygen.1  Makefile

How do I install this program? I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

If there is a configure file in the folder you extracted "cruft-0.2.tar.gz" to, open a terminal to that directory (to that path) and run

 sudo make install
  • Since it doesn't look like there's a configure file included, you should just have to run make sudo make install – Andrew Wallace Oct 12 '16 at 16:51

    ./configure is supposed to create makefile..but as op says..its already there..so running make will do i guess – minigeek Oct 12 '16 at 16:54
