Ok...first i've tried this

1 sudo apt-get update
2 sudo apt-get upgrade
3 sudo apt-get install make git build-essential

Shell

1 cd /tmp
2 git clone https://github.com/Huskynarr/gnome15.git
3 cd gnome15
4 ./configure
5 make
6 sudo make install

Everything goes well except at this line: ./configure...got an error msg there :(

any idea?

Thank you for taking time to look at my post, really appreciated.

...heiny, i have no idea how this thingy works myself...but i'd try instead:

Code: Select all

autoreconf -i
./configure
make
make install
That is, based on the bug reports on the project page itself:
https://github.com/Huskynarr/gnome15/issues/19
&
https://github.com/Huskynarr/gnome15/issues/13

Edit:...you could also have a look at the following thread for pre-compiled binaries and/or instructions:
