#1038 closed Bug (invalid)

Transmission SVN fails on Ubuntu

Reported by: smmalis Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 1.22+
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Not sure if this is my bug or yours, but upon running, I get the following: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1
Creating aclocal.m4 ...
Running glib-gettextize...  Ignore non-fatal messages.
Copying file mkinstalldirs
Copying file po/

Please add the files
  codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
from the /aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from

Making aclocal.m4 writable ...
Running intltoolize...
Running ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode all 46: ./configure: not found

Now type 'make' to compile Transmission.
./installdev-transmission: line 5: ./configure: No such file or directory
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

I have seen this bug on many message boards, but nobody has a solution. Attached is the script I use. Any ideas?

You need to install libtool.

This should be mentioned on the Development page, as I am not the only one experiencing this problem.
