Compiling Synapse; configure necessary?

Asked by Clemens Korner on 2011-04-21

I have tried to compile Synapse as written on: http://synapse.zeitgeist-project.com/wiki/index.php?title=WritingPlugins
All required libraries are installed.
When I execute `./autogen.sh && make` an error appears:
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
--> the Makefile is missing.

It was possible to build Synapse successfully with `./autogen.sh && ./configure && make`
Is there an error in the wiki or did I do anything wrong?

Well last step of autogen is that it runs ./configure, so there must some other issue.

Problem solved:
I installed the 'gnome-common' packages and then it was possible to compile Synapse with `./autogen.sh && make`.
Berfore I had only 'autotools' and 'autoconf' installed.
