I'm trying to build the latest version of LMMS v1.0.0 and I'm running into this error

Linking CXX executable RemoteZynAddSubFx /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXft /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lfontconfig /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXinerama collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status make[2]: * [plugins/zynaddsubfx/RemoteZynAddSubFx] Error 1 make[1]: [plugins/zynaddsubfx/CMakeFiles/RemoteZynAddSubFx.dir/all] Error 2 make: ** [all] Error 2

What I gather is it can't find these 3 things to link to? Where do I find them and then link them?

Much appreciated in advance!

ZynAddSubFX links to these libraries and they are a hard-dependency as outlined in the build tutorial (see the Or, manually: block).

apt-get install libxft-dev libxinerama-dev
