The release notes on the project page imply that the command:
cmake
will configure a build environment. You also need to specify which directory to build into.

Instead of:
cmake
    make
    sudo make install
    cd ..

You probably want:
    cmake .
    make
    sudo make install
    cd ..

Note the dot after cmake
Readme.txt does not have this problem

Also, the readme says:

Downloaders will need to compile the projects in TMX/Core first.
Start with the TmxUtils project, then the TmxApi, followed by the TmxCore. After those are built, you can
compile any of the projects from the Plugins directory.


But no specifics are given. Should I mirror the workflow above?

Finally, the readme says:

To compile a project:
• Change directory to the Debug or Release subfolder for the project (cd Debug)
• Run cmake (cmake ..)


I don't see a Debug or Release folder in the project. Does cmake create one somewhere? Should I just create one arbitrarily? and do all of my building from there? I generally don't expect it to matter with cmake, but the fact that you specify a target folder makes me wonder if there's some magic going on there that I don't want to upset.

Thanks!
