This is an English version of autoreconf: failed to run autopoint: No such file or directory
I was trying to compile a program from its source on my Ubuntu 16.04 and when I got the part where I need to execute
autoconf -i, I got a bunch of
autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: running: autopoint --force
Can't exec "autopoint": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 345.
autoreconf: failed to run autopoint: No such file or directory
autoreconf: autopoint is needed because this package uses Gettext
In my case, I just had to install autopoint
$ sudo apt-get install autopoint
Just in case installing autopoint doesn’;t solve the problem for you, you might want to install gettext
$ sudo apt-get install gettext
