Hi guys.  I downloaded glfw-3.0.4 from the glfw site and I am trying to follow their instructions to build the project from source.  However, when I type 'cmake .' in the glfw-3.0.4 directory, I get the following errors:

 

CMake Error: Cannot determine link language for target "glfw".
CMake Error: CMake can not determine linker language for target:glfw
 

Now it's very obvious what's causing these errors but I am wondering why they are cropping up if I am following the build directions that are posted on the GLFW site?

maybe try

cmake -G "MSYS Makefiles" . && make

(Assuming you're using the MSYS shell that comes with MinGW)

That command didn't work.  I'm in the Ubuntu terminal.
