Install from source

Never succeeded just yet, but the idea is:

Usually compiling involves nothing but execute a couple of commands. Try entering the directory, execute ./configure if no errors appear then execute make and if no errors appear then finally execute make install. If any of the previous steps go wrong then keep looking for the binaries, otherwise you have compiled and installed your first program from sources 

 (comment under this answer)

So:


  • enter directory, execute ./configure
  • if no errors appear then execute make
  • if no errors appear then finally execute make install
