I recently installed Mint 14 onto my old laptop and would like to install Conky. I have downloaded the .tar and being completely new to Linux I have no idea what I am looking at while reading the install file. I have check the post on how to install programs on Linux post(viewtopic.php?f=90&t=97158
). After running ./configure I get a series of no responses on the final 4 checks and then an error message.
checking for funopen... no
checking ncurses.h usability... no
checking ncurses.h presence... no
checking for ncurses.h... no
configure: error: required header(s) not found
squirtbox@thebox ~/Downloads/conky-1.9.0 $ make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
This is the response I get. I have no idea what any of this means.
