When I tried to open a CAD STEP-file with gmsh there is an error that I should compile gmsh with OpenCascade.

What does that mean and how is this possible?

I have downloaded the OpenCascade file, but don't know what to do with it.
There is no documentation of how to compile OpenCascade itself or even with gmsh.

Usually Gmsh comes with OpenCASCADE. Maybe you downloaded wrong version.

I got the version directly from the (k)ubuntu server. Maybe thats the problem.

I will try using the file from the website.

Compiling stuff again.

The FAQ.txt of gmsh from the website sais:

* 2.4 How do I compile Gmsh?

Just type './configure; make; make install'. If you change some
configuration options (type './configure --help' to get the list of
all available choices), don't forget to do 'make clean' before
rebuilding Gmsh


Where do I have to put these commands?
If I run ./configure in the gmsh directory there is an error bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Whats wrong?

Damn it.
I have downloaded the "stable release" for Linux, which is no source code at all.
(What is is good for?)

Now I have used the source code an compiled it.
But the error is still the same.

What now?
