Installing on MX Linux

Post by .user2357 »

I'm a noob.

On ... =0&t=18088, for a "Linux > Other distros > Code" install, in the 6th line, it instructs me to enter "cmake ..".

Firstly, MX Linux gives the error message "bash: cmake: command not found".

Secondly, what does ".." mean in "cmake .."? Judging by other lines lower down in the installation "code", it seems to be a placeholder. How should I fill in the blanks?

Doesn't anybody know of any way to make VS automagically installable on any Linux distro?

[SOLUTION]: Install the Windows version, and run it in Wine on MX Linux. If the screen resolution seems out of kilter at first, simply alt+tab to another window, and then back again. It worked for me.
