Hi!

I am completely new on Linux and I am having problems installing Kile (http://kile.sourceforge.net/help.php#compile)

I followed all the instructions, but when I insert

cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/kile-install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="Debug"

I get

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:98 (MESSAGE):
ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found in
/home/evandro/.kde/share/apps;/usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde4-profile/default/share/apps;/usr/share/kde4/apps
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMakeLists.txt:5 (find_package)


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

What could it be?

Thanks!

You're missing some KDE libraries.
But, why are you compiling the software yourself? It's definitely faster and easier to install it from the repos.

I don't know why I am doing like this...

Could you teach me how to install it from the repos?

A few ways to do it, from easiest to less easiest:
-Open Muon software center. Search for Kile (I just checked and its in there) and click install.

-Open Muon Package Manager. Search for Kile. Click "Installation" and then "Apply Changes."

-Open a terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install kile

EDIT: Dang, got beaten :P

The easiest way would be to fire up Ubuntu Software Center, search for the software you want (in this case Kile), click "Install".

Or the faster, but more difficult way (Since you need to know the exact name of the package) would be to enter this into the terminal:

sudo apt-get install kileor replace kile with any software packages, like firefox, chromium,...
No need for annoying compiles :p

Installed using terminal (just to get used to it!). Running ok! =)
