After having trouble trying to install KDevelop on Ubuntu version 9.04 due to it having libtool version 2.2.4 instead of the required version of 1.5.X.X, I installed version 188.8.131.52LTS.
However, after then installing KDevelop through Synaptic (including the dependencies it said were required) I still fail to be able to compile the basic 'Hello World' program. When I attempt to build I recieve the following prompt:
There is no Makefile in this directory
and no configure script for this project.
Run automake & friends and configure first?
To which I select 'Yes'. But despite this I receive the following error:
cd '/home/a/helloworldtest2' && WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="1" WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6="1" LC_MESSAGES="C" LC_CTYPE="C" make -f Makefile.cvs && mkdir '/home/a/helloworldtest2/debug' && cd '/home/a/helloworldtest2/debug' && CXXFLAGS="-O0 -g3" "/home/a/helloworldtest2/configure" --enable-debug=full && cd '/home/a/helloworldtest2/debug' && WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="1" WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6="1" LC_MESSAGES="C" LC_CTYPE="C" make -k
make: aclocal: Command not found
make: *** [all] Error 127
*** Exited with status: 2 ***
After looking for a solution, common suggestion is the following:
You need to have aclocal (automake, autoconf and libtool) installed.
But upon running the following commands in the Terminal to see if they are installed:
apt-cache showpkg automake
apt-cache showpkg autoconf
apt-cache showpkg libtool
I am lead to believe that I have the following versions installed:
automake Versions: 1:1.10.1-2
autoconf Versions: 2.61-4
libtool Versions: 1.5.26-1ubuntu1
But alas, I am still unable to compile programs.
If anyone has any ideas I'd be really grateful if they could suggest them because I need to get this installed and so far it's been a total fail, just like asking on the KDevelop forums themselves has been.
Thanks very much.
