Default How to compile Ninjam on Linux

The instruction coming with the Ninjam source for compilation is far from being instructive for people like me, who maybe once a year have to touch the console.

What I did:

I am running a recent (8.04) Ubuntu Linux

I downloaded the sources, checked with Synaptic that all of the metioned packages are installed.

cd into the folder ninjam/cursesclient and as the compiling instruction sugested, typed "make"

I got a g++ cmmand not found error...

ok, I installed g++ (needs to be mentioned)

Then make did something: a long list of warnings (mostly about old style conversion in "char"), and an even longer list of errors (mostly about not defined variables and something not being of Type...)

I'd love to get more complete instructions... Or a binary...

I am not a programmer, programmers talk won't help... ;-)

NinJam is a great tool, I'd love to run it on Linux...

All the best
