Summary0005809: Errors installing gnunet-gtk on Debian 9
DescriptionThe instructions on the website for installing GNUnet on Debian 9 with GUI give error messages. Here is what the error looks like:

user@GNUnet:~/gnunet_installation/gnunet-gtk$ make -j$(nproc || echo -n 1)

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

user@GNUnet:~/gnunet_installation/gnunet-gtk$ sudo make install

make: *** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop.


Perhaps there is a missing step? Without GUI support not a lot of people are willing to tinker with it, and Debian users certainly make a potentially large user-base.
Steps To ReproduceSimply follow instructions for GNUnet installation on Debian with GUI support. I have tested on several machines and I always get the same error.

Can you please give more detail about your build environment (the output gnunet-bugreport) and what your exact steps were?


Option 3: gnunet-gtk

Installing the Gtk+-based graphical user interface can be done on top of either the production or development installation.
$ sudo apt install libgtk-3-dev libgladeui-dev libunique-dev libqrencode-dev $ cd ~/gnunet_installation/gnunet-gtk
$ ./bootstrap
$ export CFLAGS="-g -Wall -O0"
$ ./configure --prefix=$GNUNET_PREFIX --with-gnunet=$GNUNET_PREFIX
$ make -j$(nproc || echo -n 1)
$ sudo make install

should be enough as it creates the Makefiles before processing them with make. It is what the website looks like for me.

Looks to me like you skipped (at least) the "configure" step from the instructions. The instructions are correct (I just double-checked).
