    Building Applications with only

    Hi all,

    I am little confused about a particular project that I would like to build. It is a NPAPI example code for a plugin that I am developing for firefox. The build directory only has What I do not understand is how I am supposed to build with only a I thought a and were necessary to run autoconf to generate the configure script right before the make.

    Can anyone shed some light on this matter? How else should I approach this, I have only just recently understood the autoconf and automake tools as part of the GNU Build system. Thanks.

    You have to run configure first to create the real makefile. cd to the project directory and enter "./configure" into your terminal. You have to do this for most Linux sources. If "./configure" works with no errors, then run "make".
