So I downloaded the latest version. I am new to Ubuntu so I am not so familiar with the commands. In the readme it says compile kismet with "make" I am assuming that "make" is some kind of compiler or a command in the terminal.
I tried using make as a command in the terminal but I don't think I have it right because what I have been trying is the command

Make kismet

And all I get is: make: ***no rule to make target "kismet". stop

What rule do I need to make kismet?
I have looked on many forums and even read the Ubuntu pocket guide lol
