Ubuntu installation issue (by Russell Gray)
Just found the product and it looks interesting, however I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and encounter a problem at:
"After that, build SolveSpace as following:

mkdir build
cd build
* cmake ..
make
sudo make install"

The cmake command requires more input than this?
Since I am new to Ubuntu and SolveSpace I thank you for whatever help you can give.

It does not. Why do you say that it does? Is there an error message? If so, post it here.

There should not be an * before the cmake command, just type:-
cmake ..
at the command prompt.

re: Installation issues (by Russell Gray)
The asterisk just indicates where the issue began, at 'cmake ..'.
Note that there was no more information after the double periods.
As of several moments ago I get the following:

[email protected]:~$ apt-get install libpng-dev libjson-c-dev libfreetype6-dev \
> libfontconfig1-dev libgtkmm-2.4-dev libpangomm-1.4-dev \
> libcairo2-dev libgl-dev libglu-dev cmake
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

@Russell, you need to run `git ...` and all later commands in a git checkout of solvespace. Try `git clone https://github.com/solvespace/solvespace` `cd solvespace` first.

@whitequark, is it a way built it without internet connection? In offline mode?

@User1, sure. Do `git clone https://github.com/solvespace/solvespace && cd solvespace && git submodule update --init` on a machine with an Internet connection; then transfer the entire "solvespace" folder to your offline machine. You will also need all -dev packages mentioned in README on your offline machine.
