Installation trouble: wxWidgets

Sorry: I’m a Linux newbie.

I downloaded the (Linux) archive and opened the “build.txt” file. I entered these lines (according to the txt):

sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake
sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev libgtk2.0-dev libgtk-3-dev
sudo apt-get install autoconf automake
sudo apt-get install git git-gui gitk

mkdir buildgtk
cd buildgtk
../configure --with-gtk

but at this point I got the error “bash: …/configure: No such file or directory”. I don’t know why. As I said, I’m a newbie: sorry. I didn’t find a solution on the internet.

PS: Instructions told me I should then do

su <type root password>
make install

Any help would be warmly appreciated.

Which version of Audacity do you want to build?
There have been big changes (simplifications) to the build process with the most recent Audacity code.
