Alright. This was my first attempt at compiling a program from source. Maybe I should have picked something easier but I am trying to install gutenprint (formerly gimp print)so I can use my new Epson scanner/printer.
I did
cd. to the folder
.configure
make clean
make
when I get to install I get
install: missing file operand
What is operand?
how do I get it?
Should I remove this thing and start over?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Answering my own question.
Pipslite did what i needed when used with CUPS. no need to compile gutenprint
