Install ZeroMQ on Ubunto 14.04.4 x64

How Do I install ZeroMQ on a Ubuntu 14.04.4 x64 droplet ?

Tried installing git and cmake via apt-get and the followed http://zeromq.org/intro:get-the-software trying to install using cmake

I get the following error: CMake Error: The source directory “<directory>” does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

If I’m going about the correctly, what should be my current directory when installing??

It looks like the docs are missing a step. After cloning the repo, you’ll want to cd into the resulting directory and create cmake-build under it as CMakeLists.txt exists in the root of the repo.

  1. git clone https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq
  2. cd libzmq
  3. mkdir cmake-build && cd cmake-build
  4. cmake .. && make -j 4
  5. make test && make install && sudo ldconfig
