Help Installing Muse 2 on Ubuntu 11

Postby JoeTurtle » Tue Sep 27, 2011 1:20 am

So I open the instructions, and I get this:

# Create build directory. Choose any name like 'build'.
mkdir build
# Enter build directory.
cd build

# Create make system in the build directory.
# Optional <Prefix> is the location to install MusE, default /usr/local.
# Build type can be blank (to reset a previous cached type to 'empty'),
# debug, release, RelWithDebInfo and MinSizeRel.
# If no CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE is given at all, cmake uses either the previous
# cached value, or else 'empty' (plain unoptimized).
# ('Release' type is recommended, otherwise it builds a plain unoptimized program.)
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release [-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<prefix>] ../

# Compile muse

I'm an absolute beginner at installing and compiling software...heck, I'm even new at the Ubuntu operating system. (But I'm much better than I used to be!) I read through the directions, but can't figure out how to "create make system in the build directory". I don't know if I need to type something into the terminal, or what...as it doesn't really say. And then the " cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release [-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<prefix>] ../" step confuses me as well. Thanks for any help!

Hello jp_no9

I wasn't aware there were packages built in kxstudio. I can walk you through installing these if you want.

Otherwise, since muse2 is in much development it is probably good to use the latest version, ie from an svn checkout.
Did you get a source package or an svn checkout? If it is a source package I recommend trying the prebuilt package above.

As for compiling, in the basedir, sample place as the README, there is a script which contains the necessary commands:
Try typing

and see if it complains about anything specific, let me know how it goes.
