Talk:Compilation on Linux
Compiling on Ubuntu
With a normal install of Ubuntu 5.10, I also needed to install automake and the freetype library to compile Stellarium.
Note from Barry Gerdes on the apt-get command
This worked correctly for me the first time I tried it but when I tried it on my second computer with a different ISP it hung because it could not find "libfreetype6-dev cvs" I re-entered the above command without this and got all the rest OK then did a search and downloaded the file separately from www.freetype.org
Response: The apt-get failure could have been a network glitch, or that the two machines had different repository settings (either download from different mirrors, one of which was missing some files, or that one machine didn't have multiverse enabled or something) Matthewg42 03:53, 18 April 2006 (PDT)
