Lost in installation docs, dont get Elmer in Fedora 29 "Fedora Scientific"

I did this:

cd Downloads
mkdir elmerfem
cd elmer
# create build directory
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
# let the cmake generate makefiles
$ cmake -DWITH_ELMERGUI:BOOL=FALSE -DWITH_MPI:BOOL=FALSE -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../install ../elmerfem

# Cmake configures things, if it does not find something (e.g., lapack), you can help it by
$ cmake -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=<path_to_lapack_installation> ../elmerfem

$ make install
$ ELMERGUI_HOME=$ELMER_HOME/bin

ElmerGUI is a different build then Elmer
You have ElmerGUI set to false
See different instructions for building ElmerGUI
