I know its a repeat but I searched high and low on Vert:
I made a Linux Mint box for a friend, and Syncterm will only load from
CLI in curses mode... the icon in 'start menu' tries to load and on
fail, shows nothing on screen. (Syncterm just quits in the background because SDL fails.)
What do I need? SDL? Sdl dev?
I know this was answered; a google search shows text from the message I needed, but I just searched on vert for 15 minutes... so I'm asking
Thanks in advance, oh build gods.
Try this script to install SyncTerm. I'm not the guy who wrote it, but I AM
the guy who stole it. ;)

st_path=$(pwd | sed 's/\/syncterm$//g')
# Time to compile!
echo "Make SRC_ROOT with path: $st_path"
sudo make SRC_ROOT=$st_path
# Install SyncTerm

sudo make install
# Find out where Syncterm was installed
echo "Find out where SyncTERM installed"
... 2 + 2 = 5 for extremely large values of 2.
