    Exclamation Problem installing with Kregedit


    Hello, good evening.

    I just downloaded a program "Kregedit". The file is compressed with ".tar.gz". I extracted the file and here are the list of files available of Kregedit program.

    acinclude.m4 config.log doc Makefile.cvs stamp-h.in
    aclocal.m4 configure Doxyfile Makefile.in subdirs
    admin configure.files INSTALL NEWS TODO
    AUTHORS configure.in kregedit.kdevelop po
    ChangeLog configure.in.in kregedit.kdevses README
    config.h.in COPYING Makefile.am src
    I already done with these command:
    Code:
    ./configure 
    make
    make install
    Here's the result when I executed the ./configure:
    Code:
     ./configure
    checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
    checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

    checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
    configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
    See `config.log' for more details.
    Here's the result when I executed the "make":
    Code:
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
    Here's the result when I executed the "make install":
    Code:
    make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.
    I thinking might be the commands "make" and "make install" are not needed with this program.

    Can anyone help me with this. Thanks and God bless.

    You have to install necessary Compilers first.
    Execute this in Terminal :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Install X developement package.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xorg-dev

    Kregedit is KDE based and you will have to install a lot of dependencies for its installation in Gnome based distro.

    Anyways, install kde-devel package.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install kde-devel
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hi Sir devils casper, good evening.

    Ahh ok, so in short I have to install the KDE Desktop Environment in order the kregedit will work?

    Since I'm very new to Linux, I just want to take this oppurtunity as well regarding the build-essentials and xorg-dev. Could you explain why I need to install these and what are inside of these programs? I mean the ingredients each of the program.

    Thank you so much Sir and God bless.

    Hi Shengton,
    If the './configure' command fails for some reason, there is no point in continuing with executing 'make' and 'make install' commands.

    One more suggestion is, if you like a software that is written for a particular platform or library set, just google around to see if you have a version for your platform or Desktop Environment.

    I googled and came to know that the author has discontinued 'kregedit' project! He is now writing using GTK+ library which means his new version will be available natively on GNOME! Its called 'gregedit'. But its not yet ready I guess. I didnot find any donwload links only screenshots.
    See, KRegedit and Jelmer Vernooij

    Either wait for this GNOME version or you can follow DC's advice.

    Hi saivin, good morning.

    Thanks for your nice inputs Sir. It's very a big help for me as a newbie. Next time I will try to google first before asking for help here. Thanks Sir for the tip!

    Thanks for the info as well regarding the program "Kregedit". So the author of the software discontinued developing the program for the KDE.

    Thanks again Sir and God bless.
