I have the following build error:

meson.build:49:0: ERROR:  Dependency "gstreamer-pbutils-1.0" not found

I want to meet needed dependencies. the previous one was:

meson.build:48:0: ERROR:  Dependency "gstreamer-1.0" not found

but that was fixed with gstreamer's own webpage and instructions.

however I cannot find any way to install gstreamer-pbutils-1.0.

The gstreamer page on pbutils is not very helpful. It seems they assume pbutils utils would ship with the instructions they gave.

I am on Ubuntu 19.04.


Visit https://packages.ubuntu.com next time first.

For current query see two relevant search results for your question - gstreamer-pbutils-1.0.pc and for gstreamer-1.0.pc.

So you need to install two development packages with needed pkg-config files:

sudo apt-get install libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev libgstreamer1.0-dev

If you want to build GStreamer by yourself you may be also interested with installing full list of its dependencies with:

sudo apt-get build-dep gstreamer1.0

and then do what you want to do.
