I'm an Ubuntu noob and I'm trying to install the PixelAnnotationTool on Ubuntu using the command line, but I'm having a super hard time doing it; bunch of errors, etc.

I want to know primarily how should I install this, and by that I mean what are the building dependencies and how should I use the 'binaries' to install this? Which files to use? I did try the 'build' instructions on that page but it gives me errors.

:( Someone please shed some light on this

    the build instructions are quite straightforward. What errors specifically are you seeing? – glenn jackman Aug 29 '18 at 22:52

  • chmod +x PixelAnnotationTool_x86_64_v1.3.1.AppImage

  • ./PixelAnnotationTool_x86_64_v1.3.1.AppImage& or open nautilus and double click PixelAnnotationTool_x86_64_v1.3.1.AppImage

chmod +x qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.9.1.run

To compile the application :

cd ..
