That looks to be pretty easy, considering that the developer kindly provides a (deb)ian folder for easy packaging.

Well...not that easy. The control file in the debian folder was missing most of the build-depends, the README provided most of the missing ones except libgegl-dev >= 0.3, and after adding those, the builds still failed with compiler errors like

Code: Select all

captioninterface.cc: In member function 'virtual int LaxInterfaces::CaptionData::RecacheLine(int)':
captioninterface.cc:428:49: error: 'hb_ft_face_create_referenced' was not declared in this scope
   hb_face = hb_ft_face_create_referenced(ft_face);
on both gcc-4.9 and gcc-6. :frown: Though the gcc-6 ld linker errors out with

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llaxkit
, and I see from the home page that the source builds and installs that, so it just needs some override that tells the system where that library is installed...

I got it to build on a 64-bit bare metal install instead of using pbuilder, but at least the pbuilder attempts showed all the missing build-deps. Now trying 32-bit in Virtual Box.
