Ubuntu: How to install dmenu?


So I just installed Ubuntu for the first time and I was trying to install Dmenu, and I opened the readme.txt to find this:


Edit config.mk to match your local setup (dmenu is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install dmenu (if necessary as root):

make clean install  

What exactly is this telling me to do?


It's telling you to make sure config.mk has the settings you want. It looks like config.mk has the install path, as well as a few other options that more advanced users may want to tweak.

As CelticWarrior pointed out, you can install dmenu without having to worry about source code with sudo apt install dmenu or sudo apt install suckless-tools.
