    Using Boost.Process Library on Ubuntu

    Hi,
    I have already installed Boost C++ Libraries and they work correctly.
    But Boost.Process is not yet an official Boost library, so I must download and install it separately. As Boost.Process is header-only the two directories boost and libs in the zip archive only need to be copied to your Boost directory. (http://www.highscore.de/boost/process/)
    I'm new in Ubuntu, can anybody talk me how to do it?
    I tried manualy to copy Boost.Process in Boost folder (which is located in /usr/include/boost), but this action is not enabled.

    Thanks.

    What do you mean not enabled? Is it a permission thing? Your user doesn't have permissions to write in /usr/include/boost, so you need to use sudo. You can do one of two things:

    1. Open a terminal and type "sudo nautilus".
    2. Type Alt-F2 and type "gksudo nautilus".


    In both cases you will be prompted for your password. After that, the file browser should come up and you should be able to copy the Boost.Process directory to /usr/include/boost.

    If it's not a permission thing, you need to explain what you mean by "not enabled".
