Problem with Compiling OF 0.11.0

I have been trying to install OF v0.11.0 in Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa. Following the instructions in https://openframeworks.cc/setup/linux-install, install_dependencies and install_codecs were successful.

But when I tried to compile ./compileOF.sh I get the following error message

./compileOF.sh: line 27: cd: too many arguments
make: *** No rule to make target ‘Debug’. Stop.
there has been a problem compiling Debug OF library
please report this problem in the forums

When I searched for solution I found Of 0.10.0 compile error on arch. But the solution in post (dated July 2018) said the update fixed the problem). I feel I have downloaded the latest version of OF.

Could you please help me?

OK so interestingly after I moved the OF folder to my root folder, I get the following error message when I compile ./compileOF.sh
Package openal was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing openal.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'openal' found Package openal was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing openal.pc’

makefileCommon/config.shared.mk:305: *** couldn’t find openal pkg-config package or it’s dependencies, did you run the latest install_dependencies.sh?. Stop.

But I just completed ./install_dependencies successfully.

Thanks in advance

The following post https://askubuntu.com/questions/122939/unable-to-locate-package-openal suggested installing libalut-dev.

And then the compilation was successful.
