You need to install zlib. It could be as simple as sudo apt-get install zlib1g-devel or use software manager/relevant method you like.

thanks once again!!! :))))

I got it!

I let here all steps if someday someone get in same situation as me:

Download fastQValidator_0.1.1, unzip at desktop

Open terminal at main folder

git clone

Enter in folder libstatgen

sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev

make LIB_PATH_GENERAL=/home/cri/Desktop/fastQValidator/libStatGen

(or "make all" my case didnt worked)
