I had trouble trying to compile the new FahMon release after reinstalling Ubuntu. This is for the current version 220.127.116.11
This is the guide you need to follow for compiling the new release
Download the latest source code from here and extract to the home drive or where ever you feel comfortable.
This will do the job for you (copy and past into a terminal)
Now to extract the file (copy and past into a terminal)
wget -O FahMon-18.104.22.168.tar.bz2 --no-check-certificate "http://fahmon.net/downloads/current.php?linux"
You'll need to make sure that you have g++,wxgtk 2.6.4 or higher and the wxgtk2.6-dev, and wx-common installed to compile the program. I would suggest the use of synaptic for installation but you can use the following commands:
tar xvf FahMon-22.214.171.124.tar.bz2
That will also install some required dependencies
sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev
And finally for some users (although this may require your install CD)
sudo apt-get install wx-common
To clear up the guide, I type in wxgtk into synaptic and select libwxgtk2.8-dev click mark for installation and allow it to select all the other required dependecies, I then run a search for wx-common tick that for installation too. I then click the apply button.
sudo apt-get install g++
For some users you may need to install the g++ package and dependancies.
Then it's a case of following the instructions in the guide, which are:
Use the cd command in a console to place yourself in your fahmon folder.
type into the console
or whatever your folder is called
cd /home/[USER NAME]/FahMon-126.96.36.199
Type in the consoleYou may need to type y to confirm partway through this.
Type This will take a few minutes, even on a very fast machine.
Type You'll get an error after make install if you don't use sudo.
You'll now find fahmon installed and an icon link to the program in Applications>System Tools
Thanks go to Uncle_Fungus for his help with this how-to.
