make sure you have libskillz as it is a required dependency.
# apt-get install libskillz
hey! you already have that installed. are you trying to be a smart alec?
Check developer site again. Yep nothing. Email developer for help. Check copyright date at bottom of site, damn 3 years ago. Developer may have lost interest, crap.
What to do?
Ah ha, join a forum to ask questions where people want to help newbs out. Joins forum.linuxnewbs.orgHello,
I want superskillz-2.0 and have been trying to compile it but haven't had any success. The furthest I got was make with errors.RE
: Why don't you just download the binary, it's available you know.Because I would like to learn how to use linux and the binary is not the latest up to date superskillz. I would like to have the latest superskillz available.RE
: There is plenty of information out there on compiling, no need to reinvent the wheel.
/**Huh???I have googled and haven't found anything yet that helps me to compile superskillz-2.0.
What is needed to get this compiled?
/**6 days and no response. They must be ignoring me so I'll google it because they believe the answer is out there.
BumpI've read the README and checked the developers website and there is no info. I even emailed the developer and he hasn't replied.nuthrmember RE
: I don't get into compiling stuff, I usually get programs from Synaptic, have you tried that?
Darth-apt-get: You will not make install, you will always be a dork newbwalker. And no, UbuntuOne did not kill your installer because I, apt-get am your installer. I can feel the hatred in you growing. Join me now and I will teach the ways of the compiling, but you must embrace your hatred newbwalker. Let your hatred move your keyboard through the wall and I will teach you things UbuntuOne never could.
Several weeks later...
Random guy posts in response to my compiling rant: Why not just use apt-file search? It will solve all of your problems compiling.
# apt-file search superskillz
opps! That package is not installed.
/**Not again! :shakes head: :sighs:
