Would somebody be so kind as to give me step by step instructions on upgrading from Listen-0.6.2 to 0.6.3

I downloaded the 0.6.3 file from http://www.listen-project.org/downloads/, but it looks like I need to compile the upgrade from source and I'm not comfortable yet doing that without guidance.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.it is really rather simple.

ok first extract the tar file somewhere (let's say your desktop for this example)

then in a terminal type:
cd ~/Desktop/listen-0.6.3/
./configure
make
sudo make installeach line after the other.

First, thank you for your help.

I extracted the tar file to my desktop no problem, but when i started entering code in the terminal I got the following:


michael@michael-laptop:~$ cd ~/Desktop/listen-0.6.3/
michael@michael-laptop:~/Desktop/listen-0.6.3$ ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Did I miss something?

A quick ls -l check gives me this:


michael@michael-laptop:~/Desktop/listen-0.6.3$ ls -l

Read the INSTALL file. Also, run this beforehand to make sure you have all the dependencies:

sudo apt-get build-dep listen
Or see if you can find a pre-built .deb: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=listen

Solved now, thanks.

INSTALL file was screwing me up. I got an error message when I tried to

make install
but once I realized I had to

sudo make install
it was all good.
