I went to instructions for . It says,
first we install the compilation metapackage by typing:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
Am I supposed to download something first? Where is the metapackage
coming from? That may seem like a dumb question but I have gone to some
download pages for various apps and I see a list of items and I honestly
don't know what I am supposed to download sometimes or even if I am
supposed to download anything.
I guess I could go through the instructions and see what happens but I
thought I would ask before I proceed.
I tried to follow the instructions for  but had a hard time following
some of it. I was working with the section titled "II. Step-by-step
instructions for the patient and new users" and when I got to where it
said to click the New button there is no New button to click. When I
selected Repositories from the Settings menu I get a window dealing with
Software sources. I got lost after that.
BTW I am on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope.
Thanks for the help so far.
