Thread: Having trouble installing an application + changing a command

    Default Having trouble installing an application + changing a command

    Hello. I'm having newbie trouble with 2 things right now and was wondering if anyone could help me out.

    1) I'm trying to install ¨fairymax". I downloaded the package from here:

    Fairy-Max (at the very top of the page)

    I extracted the archive, then in terminal cd'ed over to the folder and tried the install. But it didn't work:

    Code:
    steven@linux-3kv4:~/Fairy-Max> sudo make install
    root's password:
    cc -O2 -s -DINI_FILE=\"/usr/share/games/fairymax/fmax.ini\" fairymax.c -o fairymax
    make: cc: Command not found
    make: *** [fairymax] Error 127
    
    
    steven@linux-3kv4:~/Fairy-Max> sudo makefile install
    sudo: makefile: command not found
    
    
    steven@linux-3kv4:~/Fairy-Max> sudo Makefile install
    sudo: Makefile: command not found
    
    
    steven@linux-3kv4:~/Fairy-Max> sudo apt-get install fairymax
    sudo: apt-get: command not found
    
    
    steven@linux-3kv4:~/Fairy-Max> sudo zypper in fairymax
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'fairymax' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
    No provider of 'fairymax' found.

    Nothing to do.

    2) In following the advice of answer D.6 here (I have GNUchess installed from a repo):

    https://www.gnu.org/software/xboard/FAQ.html#tag-D.6

    I tried to modify the icon of Xboard on my desktop folder. I right clicked the icon, clicked "properties" -> "Application" ... in the field "Command" I tried to change what was there "xboard" to "xboard -fcp "gnuchess xboard" but got an error along the lines of "Could not save properties. You do not have sufficient access to write to /home.../xboard.desktop" ... I was logged in as sudo in terminal as well as logged in as admin to Yast when I tried this.

    You need compiling tools, what I did on my system Suse 12.1 (64) was, go into Yast, install/remove programs, changed filter on the left to patrones (patterns I suppouse in English) and then click on development in a box that says desarrollo base (basic development I suppouse), that will install neccesary tools for you to compile and that includes a gcc compiler.
