Can you try following the instructions in our Download page? There might be something wrong with that repo.

I install from github and it works pretty easily. Initially I tried to install from that repo and had some problems - I can't remember what they were at the time, but they were enough to make me compile from source.


thanks,i have following the instruction in download page ,and it works now.
