So I open the instructions, and I get this:
# Create build directory. Choose any name like 'build'.
# Enter build directory.
# 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!
