I am attempting to compile the program Goozzee, which seems the only program of its niche type (personal desktop knowledge base using topic maps), so I'm pretty invested in getting it going.
These are the compile/install instructions that were included:
aclocal autoconf automake --add-missing ./configure make make install
Ubuntu seems to require wx-common, so I installed that.
Instructions to automake work, but
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p checking for gawk... gawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes checking whether make supports nested variables... yes ./configure: line 2893: syntax error near unexpected token `5.5.0,' ./configure: line 2893: `MYSQL_CLIENT(5.5.0, embedded)'
so its a ./configure problem, which is common, but no one on the internets seems to also have information on the syntax error that involves MYSQL_CLIENTS or token '5.5.0, '
I have both packages pk-config, and pkg-config, but neither seem to make a difference I unpacked autogen.sh, but I don't know actually install it as there is a division in the application folder for personal and network editions, and the folder that contains the editions has also application information. I put it in the PE folder.
./autogen.sh && make && sudo make install grep: ./configure.ac: Permission denied Preparing the project build system...please wait Found GNU Autoconf version 2.69 Found GNU Automake version 1.15 Warning: libtoolize does not appear to be available. This means that the automatic build preparation via autoreconf will probably not work. Preparing the build by running each step individually, however, should work and will be done automatically for you if autoreconf fails. ERROR: Unable to locate GNU Libtool. ERROR: To prepare the project build system from scratch, at least version 1.4.2 of GNU Libtool must be installed. autogen.sh does not need to be run on the same machine that will run configure or make. Either the GNU Autotools will need to be installed or upgraded on this system, or autogen.sh must be run on the source code on another system and then transferred to here. -- Cheers!
I have tried all day on this. I have not compiled on this machine yet, nor did I know how to this morning. Easy instructions and searched troubleshooting terms/suggestions are not working.
