    Post complile from source help

    Hello guys need some help here..

    Well, I'm pretty new to Ubuntu and found that it's very interesting. I try to install a Sinhalese Language typing software but it's web site says there is a bug with 11.04 version which they fixed and they provided another page to show how to do it. The problem is they asked me to download and compile from source which I've never heard of. So can you guys specify what are the essential steps to follow. It's okay if you're listing only the steps without how to do it,I can Google and find out. Thank you.



    Here I'm providing the software website and the bug-fixed site

    It would be easier if you'd just post the error message you get from make. It's not really possible to tell just from the source code what might be wrong on your specific installation. You might be missing a -devel package that I have already, for instance.
