This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • @dobey , my question is about a problem that i face it when compiling or installing a app , and it has not a relation with what you give ! – Learner Nov 13 '14 at 19:27
  • Your problem is a general question of "how to build something from source." You need to install the required dependencies to build anything from source. The errors clearly state what dependencies are missing. Having a question for answering what dependencies are needed to build every random library or application available, is unreasonable and not something the site can do. – dobey Nov 13 '14 at 19:52
  • @dobey , all dependencies are installed(including GTK and lua) , but the problem still happened – Learner Nov 13 '14 at 20:06
  • You didn't install the development packages then, only the runtimes. – dobey Nov 13 '14 at 20:11
  • You need to install the appropriate -dev packages as well. For example, libgtk2.0-dev if it requires the 2.x GTK+ API. – dobey Nov 13 '14 at 20:24

Use the linux-install_dependencies.sh script in the scripts folder of the repository to install all the required dependencies automatically
