how to install totem

Asked by Parag Ahivale on 2015-12-18

I am getting the error:

Error: Could not satisfy dependency: totem

This happened while running the following command:
parag@parag:~/torch-hdf5$ sudo luarocks make hdf5-0-0.rockspec LIBHDF5_LIBDIR="/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/"

Can somebody help? I think I need to install totem. Can someone tell me how?

Maybe installing libtotem-dev in addition to the already installed totem package helps.

Nope it still shows the same error!!

There seem to be different things called 'totem'.
It seems to me that you do not need Ubuntu's totem media player,
but the test software from

True. i just found out that. I cloned it but I don't know what to do next! Can you provide me with the steps ? That would be helpful.
PS: Am a newbie

Sorry, not sure, maybe something like

sudo luarocks install totem-0-0.rockspec

(those two lines were taken from )

Thanks man. That worked for me!
