    I am new to Linux Mint and I am trying to download and install devkitPro after several Google searches I have found several guides but all of them are confusing I was wondering if there was a universal guide for installing on Linux Mint any help on this matter would be great thank you

    Excuse me, but you will have a hard time building something when you seem to find the
    installation instructions confusing already.
    Take your time to get accustomed to linux.

    Here´s a simple how-to install without support, good luck.

    Code:
    (1)
    Download the .deb file from here:
    https://github.com/devkitPro/pacman/releases/tag/devkitpro-pacman-1.0.1
    
    (2)
    Goto the .deb files location, right-click into the window and open the terminal.
    To install type:
    sudo dpkg -i devkitpro-pacman.deb
    
    (3)
    Then create the path to devkitpro, type (line by line):
    export DEVKITPRO=/opt/devkitpro
    export DEVKITARM=${DEVKITPRO}/devkitARM
    export DEVKITARM=${DEVKITPRO}/devkitPPC
    export PATH=${DEVKITPRO}/tools/bin:$PATH
    EDIT: and set them permanently
    source ~/.profile
    
    (4)
    Logout and Login or restart the computer.
    
    (5)
    Open terminal,type:
    sudo dkp-pacman -Sy
    sudo dkp-pacman -Syu
    sudo dkp-pacman -S switch-dev
    The first commands updates the database.
    The second installs / updates.
    The third installs console specific files (3ds-dev, nds-dev, ...)
     ***You may need some additional files, read it up by yourself***
    
    (6)
    DONE. :)

    No problem, but I´m just an more or less average linux user myself.

    Speaking of that, it seems I forgot a command at step (3),
    maybe you have to repeat the export commands and make
    them permanent by typing:

    Code:
    source ~/.profile

    Sorry to bother you again but will this work for Linux Kubuntu ? I followed the instructions exactly but when I run the "make" command I get this error

    Code:
    [email protected]:~$ make
    
    Command 'make' not found, but can be installed with:
    
    sudo apt install make    
    sudo apt install make-guile
    
    [email protected]:~$
    
    thanks for any help you are willing to provide

    Edit: I have solved this issue by running sudo apt install make and now everything works ^_^

    Glad you got it solved.
    I´m not around here everyday, not the best person to ask questions,
    you got it sorted out before I read your question.
