The traditional way to compile Linux apps, still followed by most
cd to new directory,
Scribus is somewhat different since it uses a newer approach
substituting ./cmake for ./configure. This approach gives greater
flexibility but also more complication. Inkscape has its own variant
which is completely different. It took me a while to wrap my head
around it. And I have been using Linux since the days when Slackware
came on 3.5 inch floppies.
If I were king every project would go back to the original way. That
way users wouldn't have to reeducate themselves each time they needed
to update a package. But nobody elected me king :<)
