I am trying to install the following piece of software: https://github.com/linron84/JST

I cloned the repo to my computer, changed into the directory and tried to execute 'make' to install the software. There is no makefile and installation failed ("make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.")

However, the instructions specifically and only say:

COMPILING:
Type "make" in a shell.

Is this a problem on the software side, or is there anything that I can do to install the software? Thank you!

Edit: Solution: Bodo correctly pointed out the makefile is in the subfolder 'Debug'. running make from there worked perfectly.


Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

Kernel: Linux 4.15.0-54-generic

Architecture: x86-64

    Either a bug in the documentation or a missing makefile in the top level directory. Subdirectory Debug contains a makefile. Try cd Debug; make. – Bodo Aug 5 '19 at 15:14
  • oh wow, I had only looked for it in src... You are marvelous, thank you! – Nikos Bosse Aug 5 '19 at 16:44

    @Bodo - you may want to copy your comment into the answer so that the question gets marked as having an answer and maybe Nikos will also accept it and you'll get the points :-) – Tomáš Pospíšek Aug 5 '19 at 17:22
