You should follow instructions in the wiki. https://github.com/FluidSynth/fluidsynth/wiki/BuildingFluidSynth


Usually, building Fluidsynth on Linux using cmake and make is not complicated . Notice that the instructions say

that for v.1.1.8  (https://github.com/FluidSynth/fluidsynth/wiki/ChangeLog#fluidsynth-118) you need cmake >= 3.0.2.

Cmake v2.8 works for Fluidsynth v 1.0.6  and should works for v1.0.7.

> Objet : [fluid-dev] Install instructions do not seem accurate
Hello friends:
Discovered this application while searching for linux MIDI applications.
I'm just a dabbler, but have been dabbling for 25+ years so am not a newbie.
I downloaded and unpacked
Its 'INSTALL' file says I can run 'configure', but there is no such file in the
distribution.  There is a 'configure.ac', which might work with autconfig, but when I try this I getan error about an undefined variable and am not sure how to set it correctly.

It looks like cmake might work, but I am old fashioned, and do not have the newer cmake version required.  Is there a way to build this for old school people?

Possibly the 'INSTALL' file should be updated to explain this.
