Just surfed around some news sites and stumbled upon the moblin (Intel's netbook Linux) site, as the 2.0 release is due. In the dev. section of the site I found projgen, a C/C++/Python project generator based on autotools and GTK. It actually has a nice GUI, though it is still *very* unstable. Now I had some hassle to get it running in the first place, so now I describe what did the trick until it will be fixed:
Note: You'll need git to fetch the sources, if you don't have them, sudo apt-get install git .
First I went to the project site: http://moblin.org/projects/linux-project-generator and did what was written there:
Opened a terminal and fetched the sources: git clone git://git.moblin.org/projgen.git
Installed the stuff that is listed there: sudo apt-get install libmagic-dev libglade2-dev libglib2.0-dev libgconf2-dev libxml2-dev
Entered ./autogen.sh , as it was described, which imediately bitched about missing libtoolize and gtkdocize , which I did not found as packages either. The right packages are: libtool and gtk-doc-tools . Installing these with sudo apt-get install libtool gtk-doc-tools will solve the problem.
Now autogen and
sudo make install
Now everything is in place, but running projgen will still bitch about a missing libprojgen.so.0, wich is located at /usr/local/lib . To make it work, you have to add it to the ldconfig thing. Do this by adding the path to a etc config file: sudo echo '/usr/local/lib' > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/projgen.conf and then update the cache: sudo /sbin/ldconfig .. Now you can run projgen.
As mentioned, it is still quite not mature right now.
