I would like to build Avogadro 1.0.0 on Ubuntu 9.04 and I hope you can clarify a few things for me - I’m still new to Linux.
According to the INSTALL file in avogadro-1.0.0.tar.bz2 I need to have:
CMake 2.6.0 or later
Qt 4.5.2 or later
OpenBabel 2.2.2 or later
Eigen 2.0.3 or later
I already have OpenBabel installed.
How can I tell if I have Qt 4.5.2 or later?
I went to the CMake site, http://www.cmake.org/cmake/resources/software.html
the instructions say
"The .sh files are self extracting gziped tar files. To install a .sh file, run it with /bin/sh and follow the directions. "
What does this mean exactly? I'm not sure how to run this file.
- The Avogadro wiki has instructions for installing Eigen at
Before I realized that I would need CMake to install Eigen, I tried following these instructions and got an error after:
the error message said that I could not make the directory, no such directory.
Is this because I didn’t have CMake installed yet?
Thanks for your help.
