    I would recommend that you don't try to compile it from source. It would be better to just download and install the binary version of Kaffeine.

    Mepis is Debian based, so typing:

    apt-get install Kaffeine

    or using whatever gui installer you have would be better. You might think that installing from source will make Kaffeine run more efficiently, but imho this is unlikely to be the case.
