View Full Version : [ubuntu] Evolution 3.6
September 28th, 2012, 08:31 PM
If I had a package, eg "evolution-3.6.0.tar.xz" to install, I read that you should be able to do this by the following commands.
-. / Configure
- Make install
But I get the following message back.
"make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stopped."
What goes wrong?

That may happen if there are missing dependencies . Evolution 3.6 is in the 12.10 repository which uses a different version of Gnome and it may not be compatible with 12.04 or earlier.

First of all, to compile software you must install the build-essential package (or build-essentials, not remember if it had S at the end).
So install that first:
sudo apt-get install build-essential(s)
Then, you need to unpack the .tar.gz if you didn't do it. Usually it will unpack in a folder of the same or similar name as the file. Go into that folder.
Once you are in the folder try the:
sudo make install
