Using CMake

CMake for Mac OS X and Windows include a GUI application.


CMake for Linux includes a curses-based terminal application called ccmake.
You must install the Ncurses development package to build it from source:

sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev

Then you can build the latest version of CMake, and ccmake will be compiled as well:
  • Download the Unix/Linux Source tar.gz file from www.cmake.org/download/
  • Open the Downloads folder, right-click on the file and select "Extract Here"
  • Open a Terminal, change directory to the extracted files, and enter the following commands:
./configure
make
sudo make install
