Description kbugger 2006-10-06 14:30:27 UTC
Version:           3.3.91 (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
Compiler:          gcc 3.4.6 
OS:                Linux

kdevelop nicely offers me gnome sytle automake projects which seems bang on target. I open my gimp tree from cvs and it loads in all the files very well.

I can see all the classes, it correctly opens the files in the code window all seems perfectly in order. I'm impressed.

So I attempt a build and it says there are no make files which is of course nonsense , I have just compiled from command line without issues.

The msg reads:

There is no Makefile in this directory
and no configure script for this project.
Run automake & friends and configure first?

The project directory is /svn/gimp , project options tells me /svn/gimp is a valid project directory with a little green tick.

Sweet , so why can it see the Makefiles.

Bug or finger trouble ?

Check Menu option: Project/Project Options/Configure Options/ Build Directrory(must be different for every different configuration)

It probably is set to 'default', meaning kdevelop is looking there for the makefile etc.. If you want to build in the source tree, remove what is set there.

Does gimp use automake in addition to autoconf?

I think this is basically a dupe of bug #71675. 

KDevelop is being too cautious. I tried it with a gimp tarball and KDevelop looks for a Makefile.cvs of an autogen.sh file, but finds neither and complains. If I instead simply run ./configure, it all works well after that.
