    Help with make and make install at a different directory

    Hello!

    I am trying to install scite, compile the source code but i have a problem.
    I am using scientific linux on a computer where I only have one directory..

    scite requires scintilla installation.. on the readme file there are instructions, but i cant get the command properly..

    "To build Scintilla, use the makefile located in the scintilla/gtk directory
    cd scintilla/gtk
    make
    cd ../..

    To build and install SciTE, use the makefile located in the scite/gtk directory
    cd scite/gtk
    make
    make install

    This installs SciTE into $prefix/bin. The value of $prefix is determined from
    the location of Gnome if it is installed. This is usually /usr if installed
    with Linux or /usr/local if built from source. If Gnome is not installed
    /usr/bin is used as the prefix. The prefix can be overridden on the command
    line like "make prefix=/opt" but the same value should be used for both make
    and make install as this location is compiled into the executable. The global
    properties file is installed at $prefix/share/scite/SciTEGlobal.properties.
    The language specific properties files are also installed into this directory."

    I get the error "make: Nothing to be done for `all'. "

    what is the command I should write exactly?

    Thank you in advance!

    What is the exact command you've entered? The error suggests you typed it incorrectly. Also, are you in the scintilla/gtk directory when you try to run it?
