cant install on Mint 18. Make cmd wont work

Post by brandon_at » Sun Aug 26, 2018 7:40 am

I have read everything I can find about installing open vpn
I have extracted the tar to my downloads folder then run terminal from inside it.
then I did ./configure
it did a whole bunch of checking stuff
then I typed make and it said
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
then I typed sudo make install and it said
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop.

this is my first install of anything on linux so I'm stuck. Please help :(
