New Install - No MeetMe

I've just done a clean install, Ubuntu 11.xx, asterisk 1.8.xxx., and the MeetMe throws up 'Applciation not found'
I'm reading about selecting make menuconfig in the asterisk src folder.
I'm a bit mystified, if I run this command, I just get a console list, not a UI to select apps I want.
Can I run this command, together with a make install after asterisk is already made/installed?

Do you see the app_meetme.so under /usr/lib/asterisk/modules ?

If you do not see the pseudo gui when using make menuselect, make sure the following packages are installed: libnewt0.52 libnewt-dev. The black screen list  of choices is also usable though. the option you are looking for is as shown in the screen shot make menuselect with peudo gui

No, the file app_meetme.so isn't present.

Then you are on the right track trying to compile Asterisk with such module.

Will I need the zpdummy timer thing if I run that app_meetme install?

My asterisk is only sip-sip, no zaptel loaded.

Sorry to be so helpless...I run these  sudo apt-get install libnewt-dev + libnewt0.52, they seem to install, I then cd /home/silas/Downlaods/asterisk-1.8.6.0 (src folder) run make menuselect, but I don't get your pretty UI, just this:
silas@silas-Asterisk:~/Downloads/asterisk-1.8.6.0$ make menuselect
CC="cc" CXX="" LD="" AR="" RANLIB="" CFLAGS="" make -C menuselect CONFIGURE_SILENT="--silent" nmenuselect
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/silas/Downloads/asterisk-1.8.6.0/menuselect'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `nmenuselect'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/silas/Downloads/asterisk-1.8.6.0/menuselect'
CC="cc" CXX="" LD="" AR="" RANLIB="" CFLAGS="" make -C menuselect CONFIGURE_SILENT="--silent" gmenuselect
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/silas/Downloads/asterisk-1.8.6.0/menuselect'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `gmenuselect'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/silas/Downloads/asterisk-1.8.6.0/menuselect'
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/silas/Downloads/asterisk-1.8.6.0'
Terminal must be at least 80 x 27.
menuselect changes NOT saved!
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/silas/Downloads/asterisk-1.8.6.0'

Still no MeetMe applcation, I'm up to:
Dahdi installed make/install/configure all run (i think ok)
I put load => app_meetme.so in modules.conf
i run 'make menuselect' in /home/silas/Downloads/asterisk-1.8.6.0, the app_meetme has an asterisk next to it, (I did nothing to do that) so I guess that means its installed.
But....I run 'core show applications' in the CLI and no MeetMe????

Moved on, a bit...I've got the MeetMe app! (although the * was in the box in MenuSelect, I needed to run 'make && make install' as per this post http://www.spiration.co.uk/post/1317/No-application-'Meetme'-for-extension---Asterisk)
So MeetMe is firing, but I'm getting:
Parsing 'etc/aseterisk/meetme.conf', app_meetme.c, Unable to open DAHDI pseudo device', and it bombs out. I've googled it, but I only comes up with mostly with permissions, I'm not really enough of a linux guy to work out what's needed, any idea?
