New laptop.
Crowbarred my way free of Win 10, repartitioned, installed Mint, fixed stupid
wireless connection problem.

Want to install qtpovray, hgpovray38, but need povray proper.
website instructions and github readme instructions are different.

Installed all of prereq packages
made it through ./configure....

Alienware povray-3.7-stable # make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
Alienware povray-3.7-stable # ls
aclocal.m4    configure     INSTALL         povray.conf    tools
appveyor.yml  configure.ac  kde_install.sh  povray.ini.in  unix

config.h.in   include       NEWS            scripts
config.log    ini           povray.1        source
Alienware povray-3.7-stable # man make
Alienware povray-3.7-stable # makefile -f Makefile.am
makefile: command not found
Alienware povray-3.7-stable # make -f Makefile.am
make: *** No rule to make target 'all', needed by 'check'.  Stop.
Alienware povray-3.7-stable # make -f Makefile.in
Makefile.in:15: *** missing separator.  Stop.
Alienware povray-3.7-stable #


:(
Any recommendations?

sudo apt-get install povray would be SO nice....

First you need the libs (jpeg, tiff ..) and dev-packages.
In the main_directory is a subdirectory unix.
In the unix subdirectory you can execute the prebuild.sh script.
with chmod +x && ./prebuild.sh
This generates in the main directory the configure script.

Old ways, stick to the old ways:
1. ./unix/prebuild.sh
1.1 it was : cd unix, ./prebuild.sh, cd .. ; before change for 3.8

1.5 check if ok

2. ./configure COMPILED_BY="your name <your email>"
2.1 you can add options like --disable-io-restrictions


2.5 check if ok

3. make -j 6
4. make check
5. sudo make install

It needs:
1. someone to make a binary version (package installs binary, they do
not compile it)
2. someone with a PPA (personal package archive)
3. clearly identify the requirement on shared libraries used during step 1.
4. duplicating the package for each supported distribution
 * Ubuntu: one LTS, one short lived every 6 months, 2 years between LTS
 * Mint is based on Ubuntu LTS, 4 revision per LTS
which means someone probably need to install a lot of virtual machines
to make it cleanly.

You too, eh?

I use openSUSE, and I figured Mint would be easier because I've found Gnome
wireless to be less temperamental than KDE wireless.  But I haven't used Gnome
wireless in some years now.

Well - it's _mostly_ fixed.   I haven't fixed the "no wireless after sleep"
issue - apparently I have to install a different driver or something.

I haven't had too many issues with it on my current laptop, and the only thing I
miss is running VISO.

Maybe I'll look at other Linux flavors before I get too far along...

Description-en: Persistence of vision raytracer (3D renderer)
  POV-Ray is a full-featured ray tracer. Ray tracers simulate objects
  and light sources of the real world to calculate photorealistic, computer
  generated images. Because of the nature of ray tracing, this process is
  quite CPU-intensive, at the benefit of more realistic images compared to
  real time rendering techniques. For example, in POV-Ray, you can model a
  glass prism, and you will see a spectrum in the resulting image.
  .
  POV-Ray by itself is a command-line utility that will take scene
  descriptions, written in a special easy-to-understand language, to
  produce ray-traced images (or even a sequence of images, for animations).
  You can either write those scene-descriptions by hand, or use external
  tools to generate (parts of) the scene.
  .
  povray-includes is highly recommended in addition to this package.
