To send the ball back to your court - without a clear report of what
exactly went wrong it is a bit difficult to help you. "No success" is not
very informative. Neither is demanding more tutorials without saying what
didn't work with the existing documentation.

You didn't say what went wrong (any error messages?), neither whether you
have installed all the dependencies (and disabled the ones you don't
have/want using CMake). You need to give people a bit more information if
you actually want help.

OSG is very easy to build on Linux, especially because most of the
dependencies are available compiled in the distribution repositories.
However, it expects that you know how to compile software using the CMake
build tool.

BTW, don't install libopenscenegraph-dev from the distribution repositories
if you want to compile your own OSG - that package is part of a
prepackaged/precompiled (and likely fairly old) OSG version comping with
your Debian. That will interfere with building your own, because the header
files and libraries will get mixed with the ones you are trying to build.
