I need to compile a larger software package, and both
gave a "cannot find" message. So I suppose boost-filename is not installed on my system.
In order to install it I tried the command
which returned the following enchalada:
sudo apt-get install libboost-filesystem*
I would appreciate any advice how to cleanly correct those problems with the most minimal work and to be sure that boost-filename gets installed correctly so it can be used again.
