View Full Version : 'make' doesn't work
Sep 29th 2008, 12:00 AM
When I try to follow these instructions to install a plasmoid it fails.
# tar -xvf plasmoid.tar.gz
# cd plasmoid
# mkdir build
# cd build
# cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
# sudo make install
I get the following error every time I try to use 'make' (doesn't matter what plasmoid I'm trying to install).
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Everything appears to work right up to the make part.

Here's an error that I'm getting when I try to cmake
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.6/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:72 (MESSAGE):
ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found in
I've tried to reinstall cmake and that hasn't helped.

You're running "make" inside the "build" directory you created. If you check it in a file manager, you'll probably find there are no files inside it. That's why make is telling you there's no Makefile.
Try doing everything from cmake onward in the originally extracted path. I've gotten decent results doing it this way. I installed the "panel spacer" plasmoid today using this approach.

chasing down the missing packages has brought me to the point of a "break install." Not so interested in these plasmoids to keep going.
I'll check back after a few more updates of II maybe it will "just work" then. :)
