well, after i installed freecad on my ubuntu 12.04 with the help of this blog i started asking about compiling and building from source.
So, when we are trying to install a package some times the terminal or the software center says that some packages are missing. The
sudo apt-get build-dep package_name is a general command that finds and installs dependencies right?
My main questions here are
- From where is it finding the missing packages, repository?
- Can we use this command for any application?Or only those that the packages are in our repositories?
