Install Make


Install build essentials and Make first:

sudo apt-get install make
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install build-essential

Install CMake

Download the latest version of CMake from the Cmake website.


From the website, download the bash shell script. It's best to keep manually installed packages within the /opt directory.

In your linux shell run:

cd /opt
chmod +x /home/[your_username]/Downloads/cmake-*
sudo /home/[your_username]/Downloads/cmake-*

Then add the following to your ~/.profile:

export PATH=/opt/cmake-3.13.3-Linux-x86_64/bin:$PATH
