    Hello,

    You have to generate ./configure with launching ./autogen.sh.
    Read the README file.

    Good luck and feedback your experience !

    ok, here Debian, maybe we can find together something running on the 2 systems ?
    Where do you find the data to build ?

    Well, i'm no moron, but I'm used to 10 years of Microfuckers OS. So this is a big change for me. To be honest, i'm not sure how i did installed that package. Because i've installed/uninstalled ubuntu several times… But I guess I used some package manager… BUt after install i ran Wired with loads of bugs…

    I don't say nor think you are an idiot. Everything is complicated before it became simple… (remember your first times on winblow$)) It's a good thing to count you in Linux users. Don't misunderstand, but maybe you'll like to read the manual first ? What you type in your favorite G. will be something like "Linux 2010 build package from source", "Linux 2010 architecture" will be nice for knowing where things stands and run together, "Linux 2010 ./waf" or "Linux 2010 tar.gz" will tell you how to compile… 2010 is here to ensure you don't read something really old and disabled, you know it's moving fast in Nux's world ! About package manager, you'll surely appreciate Synaptic (apt-get install synaptic). Every command line you can have help about including "-help" after the command ie "apt-get -help". Sometimes "man apt-get" will tell more. Well, good luck and let me know. Oh, not to say it s****, but keep in mind that Ubuntu is an old African word to say "I don't know how to set my Debian" !! (and it seems you are trying to act like a Debian user, Ubuntu is more a "no command line" distro). Just my 2 cents, Peace.

    Yo. I chose Ubuntu precisely because I'm going to work by my own  and need open source options. And since I don't have time to read the manuals (I'm reading 4 books at the time, extra nerdage) but I always manage to do things by my own. And I think Ubuntu is nice because probably Debian is too complicated for beginners. But getting to the point of the topic,  I also tried Ubuntu Studio, but I didn't managed to install all that software that interests me. So i guess I'm quiting on solving this problems for now, cause I can't spend much time in this matter, as I was an Ableton user (just for fun, nothing serious) so I guess I'll still looking for options while running Ableton on my home laptop. Sorry that I can't help you :s

    Just the difference between free mind and free beer. Sorry for you, cheers.
    PS : Yes! it takes 1 year to be able to Debianize your world, how long did you plan to live- how long did you you meant it : FREE ?
