LXFDVD135 - How To Install Hugin-2010.0.0

Postby prenticemarie » Tue Jul 27, 2010 11:24 am

As a newbie I have been unable to install Hugin-2010.0.0 from the issue 135 DVD.
I cannot find a "configure" file and ./configure fails.
I have tried "make", "install" etc. to no avail. I would appreciate some assistance, thanks.

Have you checked first to see if it's available from your distro's repository?

Hugin uses cmake instead of the traditional autotools. Read INSTALL_cmake from the tarball for the installation instructions.

Whenever you unpack a source tarball, the first thing you should do is read any README and INSTALL files.

Yes, (I am running Ubuntu 9.04) but Synaptic Package Manager does not have version 2010 available.

Thanks Nelz, I ran the cmake package but it fails at "can't find TIFF package".

This does not appear in Synaptic Package Manager.

In Lucid it's called libtiff4-dev, so I expect it'll be something very much like that in 9.04.

Thanks Guys for your help .... the "cmake" install is now complete after six hours work !
Basically ALL the Ubuntu format "dev" packages had to be installed from the Synaptic Package Manager each time the "cmake" produced an error message, and then re-run the "cmake" to find the next error.
That is DEFINITELY the last time I will install software from LXF, unless there is a "deb" package available.

Thanks again. :P

That would be a shame as you've done all that work now. Once the -dev packages are installed, compiling from source is quite simple, it's largely a one-off pain.
