I'm getting stuck while trying to install VLC from the .tar.xz file found in http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-sources.html.
These are the steps I found from the internet
1)tar Jxvf <name_of_.tar.xz file>
This checks if all the required packages/softwares/libraries/frameworks are present in the system.
These are collectively called dependancies right? Correct me if I'm wrong.
For me, when I do this step, it says
I tried doing
configure: error: No package 'dbus-1' found.
, but it says
sudo apt-get install dbus-1
E: Unable to locate package dbus-1
I'm stuck. What next ?
4)Typically, you are supposed to do these steps next right ?
But for me it says
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
How do I proceed ? Please advise.
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
