Installation - nice and easy

With most recent linux distributions, all prerequisites are usually installed, so if you want the standard features and just get going, you can use the following in more than 90% of cases. Assuming you have downloaded the source code in the /tmp/ directory, you can type the following standard commands, as root :


# cd /usr/local/src
# tar xjvf /tmp/chmfp-0.6.0.tar.bz2
# cd chmfp-0.6.0
# make && make install


This should produce chmfp executable and place it in /usr/local/bin/, then you can run it by just typing chmfp (if you don't want to install it in /usr/local/bin, you might need to specify full path to execute).


You might want to go to the next chapter if any issues are encountered, and to the uinput chapter in all cases to check it out.



Note for all pages : we use the same notation throughout all pages, namely a "$" at prompt means you should perform command as normal user, a "#" at prompt means you should perform command as root. If you are using a linux distribution which favours sudo as Ubuntu does, you shall add sudo prior to command, otherwise you can log in as root or use su command. Your mother probably already told you that you should never run graphical applications as root !
