You mean like a list of dependencies?
http://chuck.cs.princeton.edu/release/ says you need
# dependency: libsndfile
# ALSA, JACK, or OSS
(you should already have one)
# gcc, lex, yacc, make
(you better have these)
I know that this is not ubuntu specific, but please remember that there
are lots of other linux distributions outthere, and maintaning a list of
packages for redhat, suse, gentoo, slaxware, debian and ubuntu (aren't
those the 6 biggest ones?) is not something we should ask the chuck

Then go ahead and make a list :-) I'll just not be using it...

Ok. Did you actually read them or just think "oops, errors, I must have
done something wrong"? No offence, but in my oppinion "error:
jack/jack.h: No such file or directory" is quite easy to understand :-)

Compiling a program from source is not that tricky, but compared with
synaptic it's "linux admin", I agree. So either one sticks with the
software available through synaptic or one learns to compile from source.
I simply tried to help you understand, in a more general way, how to
compile a piece of software, so that you'll know what to do next time
you need to.
peace, love & harmony
