Cannot compile from source, "no such file or directory" when input ./configure into shell

I have been trying to compile a couple pieces of software from tarballs I found online (specifically, openFrameworks, found here: ) but when I input ./configure as indicated here I receive a message stating “no such file or directory.” I then tried to run autoconf and got an error message saying “no input file.” The actual code is as follows:

myself@localhost:~> tar xf /home/myself/Work/work/of_v0.11.2_linux64gcc6_release.tar.gz
myself@localhost:~> cd /home/myself/Work/work/of_v0.11.2_linux64gcc6_release
bash: cd: /home/myself/Work/work/of_v0.11.2_linux64gcc6_release: No such file or directory
myself@localhost:~> cd /home/myself/Work/work/of_v0.11.2_linux64gcc6_release
myself@localhost:~/Work/work/of_v0.11.2_linux64gcc6_release> ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
myself@localhost:~/Work/work/of_v0.11.2_linux64gcc6_release> autoconf
autoconf: error: no input file

If anyone has any idea of how to solve this issue or what’s going on here, that would be great.

Did you look at the for the instructions? Use the Fedora scripts… replace yum with zypper should get you going.

As suggested above you have to read “”. There is no “configure” file. If you cd down to :


You will see:

that is what the install says to run.

Hope it works: tom kosvic
