View Full Version : [ubuntu] Seeking help with ./configure error

Hi, I hope someone can help me with my problem... any help would be greatly appreciated.

Last week I downloaded the OpenOffice SDK from Synaptic. The SDK was downloaded into the correct subdirectory under usr/lib/openoffice/Basis3.2/sdk. The basic problem I have is that running ./configure from within the sdk folder does not work. Here is the list of current files within sdk:

[code]michael@michael-desktop:/usr/lib/openoffice/basis3.2/sdk$ ls
bin configure.pl include setsdkenv_unix.csh settings
classes docs index.html setsdkenv_unix.csh.in
config.guess examples lib setsdkenv_unix.sh
config.sub idl setsdkenv_unix setsdkenv_unix.sh.in

When I type ./configure from within the directory, it states:

[code]michael@michael-desktop:/usr/lib/openoffice/basis3.2/sdk$ ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

I realize that the only configure file in there is a Perl file... but what am I missing? I am relatively new to this, sorry if this was a question that belonged in Beginner Talk.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Never mind, I cat-ed the setsdkenvunix.csh file. Found the answer... just needed to run setsdkenvunix. Thanks anyway!
