Finally, after more than a couple years. I'm bedazzled by a package outside of repos/snap/flat/app that I'd like to try:
ZyGrib-8.0.1, a phenomenal-looking weather app. (https://www.zygrib.org/)
zyGrib-8.0.1.tgz (18.8 Mo)
Compilation is needed. In a terminal window, unpack the archive file (tar xvzf zyGrib-8.0.1.tgz). Move to zyGrib repository and run command "make" auf. That's all ... Normally ;-)
QT5 development tools should be installed.
If you have more than one QT version installed, you have to use "QT5 qmake". You just do it in changing Makefile first line (found in src repository) in adjusting QTBIN variable.
Under Linux you could of course use the windows compiled version with wine, but ... "
There is a solus-sanctioned solbuild option. A compile that everyone else usually does but I never have. Or me logging into my sol.dev account and filling out a request form with a tear in my eye.
(I got as far as unpacking the tar. All elements still in /downloads.)
Not to get too weird, or cerebral, but what's the right approach here for my rookie make package attempt?
Not even close to important; reply at leisure. Thanks, Brent
