Hello everyone

I am trying to install cufflinks, which I downloaded from the source. I run the command configure as follow

~/Downloads/cufflinks-2.2.1.Linux_x86_64$ configure --prefix=/path/to/cufflinks/install --with-boost=/path/to/boost --with-eigen=/path/to/eigen

so configure did not give error. Then I run

~/Downloads/cufflinks-2.2.1.Linux_x86_64$ make --prefix=/path/to/cufflinks/install --with-boost=/path/to/boost --with-eigen=/path/to/eigen

the make command gave me the following error message

make: unrecognized option '--prefix=/path/to/cufflinks/install
make: unrecognized option '--with-boost=/path/to/boost'
make: unrecognized option '--with-eigen=/path/to/eigen'
Usage: make [options] [target] ...`

I appreciate your help and time

Why are you insisting to install from source when you are running into difficulties (this is the third or fourth thread you have posted about cufflinks install errors). Just get the appropriate pre-compiled binary from the page above and go on with the analysis.

Sorry, I did not mean to bother you.

There is no bother. Downloading the pre-compiled binary (if needed, adding execute permissions e.g. chmod a+r cufflinks will allow you to start the actual analysis. I hope you are using actual paths on your server instead of the "/path_to" entries, right?

Please validate your past threads (upvote or accept answers if the suggestions have worked for you). Just saying (C: samtools installation errors ) does not indicate if the problem was solved.

If the answer below has worked for you then do you see the "green check mark" below the vote count for that answer you should check that to "accept" the answer. That provides closure to this thread marking it "solved".

Hi,

it is specified rather obviously here

You run ./configure with parameters —prefix, etc. But make and make install (possibly with sudo) without any parameters.
