[LINUX] Install the latest version of CMake on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS


Learn how to install the latest version of CMake on Ubuntu.


The version of CMake that I tried to install this time

The easiest installation method

If you want to install CMake most easily, you can install it with apt-get (RHEL system such as CentOS is yum) as follows.

$ sudo apt-get install cmake

However, the version of Cmake you get with this is somewhat older. (I think the version of cmake I checked was 3.10.) The only way to get the latest version (not just the latest version, but other versions as well) is to get it directly from the site.

Install the OpenSSL development package

You will need the OpenSSL development package to install CMake. It can be installed with the following command.

$ sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

You can check the version as follows.

$ dpkg -l | grep libssl
ii  libssl-dev:amd64                                1.1.1-1ubuntu2.1~18.04.5                         amd64        Secure Sockets Layer toolkit - development files

Looking at this, it seems that it is version 1.1.1. By the way, prior to this, OpneSSL itself was updated as follows.

$ sudo apt-get install openssl

After the installation is complete, check the version as follows.

user@hyasuda:~$ openssl version
OpenSSL 1.1.1  11 Sep 2018

Install CMake

The source code of CMake can be obtained from the following site. https://cmake.org/download/

Here, I installed the latest version of CMake 3.17 at that time. Please note that make must be pre-installed before installation.

Download the source file (hogehoge.tar.gz) from the above site. What is the content of the file after downloading and unzipping it?

$ ls /path/to/cmake-3.17.2
Auxiliary                   CMakeLists.txt     CTestCustom.cmake.in  Help       README.rst  Utilities                 doxygen.config
CMakeCPack.cmake            CMakeLogo.gif      CompileFlags.cmake    Licenses   Source      bootstrap
CMakeCPackOptions.cmake.in  CONTRIBUTING.rst   Copyright.txt         Modules    Templates   cmake_uninstall.cmake.in
CMakeGraphVizOptions.cmake  CTestConfig.cmake  DartConfig.cmake      Packaging  Tests       configure

Just run bootstrap in it and then make. For more information, read the README.rst inside. (In fact, the content written here explains the contents of README.rst as it is)

$ cd /path/to/cmake-3.17.2
$ ./bootstrap && make && make install

This completes the installation. After all is completed, check the version with the cmake command.

$ cmake --version
cmake version 3.17.2


When I tried it, it got stuck without the OpenSSL development package, but after that it worked fine. I would be grateful if you could let me know if you are stuck.
