Bug Description

Trying to figure out how to build lp:nux, the only instructions I can find are in the INSTALL file. However those are generic autoconf instructions that don't actually work for the nux source.

Now I've been told I should be using autogen.sh, but that was by word of mouth and it has no comments or docs confirming that's how you should build Nux.

You can find instruction on how to build Nux here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/28470/how-do-i-build-unity-from-source

Check out point #2 of the accepted answer.

I know how to build Nux.

However the instructions in the source tree are wrong. And if any file (including docs) in lp:nux needs fixing, it needs a bug associated with it.
