To compile SuperKaramba, you need to download the sourcecode and uncompress it:

tar -zxvf cd

Now you need to compile it. This will require that you have gcc and g++ installed, along with a bunch of libraries.

To do this, execute these commands:

This will make sure that you have all the libraries needed and it will figure out where they are (in most cases).

This, if successful, will create the binary karamba in the src directory.

make install
This has to be executed as root. It will copy the executable to a place suitable to be used by all users (default is probably something like /usr/local/bin)
