Installing LinuxDC++ in Ubuntu

Installing prerequisites

sudo apt-get install cvs scons build-essential libgtk2.0-dev libglade2-dev zlib1g-dev libbz2-dev libglitz1-dev

After finishing the installation you need to download LinuxDC++ from their anonymously CVS.This program is currently only

avaliable through cvs.Currently my working directory is /usr/local/src.

cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/linuxdcpp login

This will prompt for password
(leave password blank)

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/linuxdcpp co linuxdcpp

If you want to download from CVS web check here http://cvs.berlios.de/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/linuxdcpp

Install LinuxDC++

Once you download the software from CVS you should be having linuxdcpp directory and now you need to enter in to the

directory using the following command.

cd linuxdcpp

scons release=1 PREFIX=/usr/local (You can choose this option)

This will starts the compilation checks and other linuxdcpp related.

Now you need to install using the following command

sudo scons install

This will finish the installation

Now if you want to run linuxdcpp just enter the following command

linuxdcpp

    scons: Building targets …
    scons: *** Source `linuxdcpp’ not found, needed by target `/usr/local/bin/linuxdcpp’. Stop.

    i don’t know if it has anything to do with this, but when i run
    “scons release=1 PREFIX=/usr/local”
    this happens
    “Checking for main() in C library ssl… no
    OpenSSL library (libssl) not found
    Note: You might have the lib but not the headers”
