I get this when I try to compile 'harfbuzz'.

No package 'icu-le' found
No package 'icu-uc' found

i have tried 'sudo apt-get install libicu-uc. But that does not solve the problem.

  • Have you look in synaptic ? – rɑːdʒɑ Jan 16 '13 at 2:15

If all you need are the development libraries, try installing libicu-dev and if you need the actual library, the name is libicu48.

apt-cache search libicu

This did the trick.


sudo apt-get install libicu-dev
