I want to use the latest MeshLab from source because of an annoying bug which makes it impossible to use MeshLab with any locale setting where "," is used instead of "." as decimal separator. Like my German one.
I mainly followed this extensive HowTo: http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Compiling_devel#Getting_the_sources and I used this advise: http://byeworld.blogspot.com/2009/01/libf2cso-undefined-reference-to-main.html
Here you find the most important steps in a short instruction set.
Now create a little shell script e.g. meshlab.sh and adjust your paths:
#!/bin/bashexport LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/home/jan/workspace/meshlab/meshlab/src/distribLC_ALL="C" MALLOC_CHECK_=2 /home/jan/workspace/meshlab/meshlab/src/distrib/meshlab "$@"
Make it executable and enjoy
