Recently I was working or rather just building the application “digikam” and “plasma-media center” . Since I needed to build these applications from source , it was quite obvious that I would require “cmake” and possibly “make” as well.
So the first thing I did was
sudo apt-get install cmake
And sure enough it does work fine but this doesn’t get you the latest version .
For installing the latest cmake version , you can get the cmake tarball from here .
Then follow the below mentioned steps to install cmake on your system .
- Extract the files to a directory (say /home)
That should be enough to get you the latest version of cmake on your system .
P.S : You might have to install make on your system which can be achieved entering the following in a terminal .
sudo apt-get install make
