Yes exactly my thoughts. As a user I don't want to use any software if
I had too much trouble even compiling it. People want instantaneous
results and if they had to go to extreme trouble trying to configure
software to use it they'd prefer not to use it.
That's why I already made an installation script regarding this. i
don't know where to submit it.
Kindly guide me.

to extend it's functionality.
i'd love to make it much more interactive software that would be used
for many purposes.
