i'm trying to install anjuta on a gnome desktop.

i'm able to unzip, the zip and configure it properly, using ./configure

but when i type in make, i get the following message
"make: ***No targets specififed and no makefile found. Stop

i then go on to type make install, i get the following message
"make:*** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop. "

what am i doing wrong. i just got the file and saved it and unzipped it.
am i missing something.

once the make and make install work properly is this supposed to create an icon on my desktop to use anjuta automatically ?


thanks

Looks like you either need to download it again, and check you're getting the right, complete file. Or look for a text document in the unzipped folder called INSTALL or README. Either open them in Kwrite or do 'cat INSTALL' in the terminal to view them.

One of them should give you the correct commands and any configure parameters needed to install properly.

Also, try doing it as root if you haven't already.

if your distro supports .rpm installation then simply download the pkg here

 http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=anjuta&submit=Search+...&system=&arch=

or use

apt of yum to install

yum install anjuta

after unzipping the file.
and i ran ./configure.
it asks a series of yes/no questions. once configure finished, this is the message at the very end.


checking pkg-config is at least version 0.90.... no
checking for GLIB...configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old. Make sure it is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment to the full path to pkg-config.

Alternately, you may set the environment variables GLIB_CFLAGS and GLIBS_LIBS to
avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

To get pkg-config, see <http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig>.
See 'config.log' for more details.


questions: could this be the reason why when i type 'make' and 'make instal' i get those two message i posted previously ?

i installed yum1.0.2 since i matched with my rpm version 4.0.4


and i type in yum install anjuta,     but i get the following msg
Traceback (innermost last):

File "/usr/bin/yum", line 22, in ?
      import yummain
File "yummain.py", line 21, in ?
FIle "clientStuff.py", line 39, in ?
AttributeError: set_user_agent

it seems more like the code for yum installation is wrong. so now how can install anjuta???

Commented:
open terminal or  run

type anjuta

Commented:
i think you installed the pkg via rpm

if you have any  doubt  use

rpm -qa anjuta

it displayes the pkg name and versin which you installed
