I just built
neovim from source for the first time on linux (Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS x86_64), and I got stuck for a while on something silly.
In the Build prerequisites I saw that
CMake was (of course) required, so I
pip installed it as suggested, and it was also listed in the
apt install command for Ubuntu / Debian requirements. At first I thought "I just installed
pip so I don't need to install it again", but it turns out I was wrong because I was unable to run
make install successfully until I ran
sudo apt install cmake.
The error was
cmake: not found at step
build/.ran-deps-cmake, although cmake was already installed (
cmake --version worked as expected).
Is there a reason for that? Did I miss something obvious?
