    Default Problem installing suckless terminal (ST)

    I am trying to install ST

    Following readme instructions I cloned file from git repository

    I think I properly installed the requirements including: make, fontconfig, libX11 and libXft

    When I go to make to compile the program I get a 127 error as follows:

    Code:
    st build options:
    CFLAGS  = -I/usr/X11R6/include  -I/usr/include/freetype2  -I/usr/include/freetype2 -DVERSION="0.8.1" -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=600 -O
    LDFLAGS = -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lm -lrt -lX11 -lutil -lXft -lXrender  -lfontconfig -lfreetype  -lfreetype 
    CC      = c99
    c99 -I/usr/X11R6/include  `pkg-config --cflags fontconfig`  `pkg-config --cflags freetype2` -DVERSION=\"0.8.1\" -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=600 -O -c st.c
    /bin/sh: c99: command not found
    make: *** [Makefile:22: st.o] Error 127
    Any help would be greatly appreciated......I am a NOOB

    It is complaining about "c99" (from "CC = c99")

    I usually expect something like "CC = gcc". I am not familiar with "c99".

    Okay, a google search turned up a Wikipedia page for c99. If that is relevant, then it is a standard for C-compilers. But the "CC =" line is supposed to give the name of the compiler rather than the standard that it follows.

    Hi
    It's already built in the X11:terminals repository, install from there?

    Hi
    Also took the liberty to update to version 0.8.1 which should now be in
    that repository.
