Building 2.84 on kubuntu 12.04

Postby josephj » Mon Apr 20, 2015 9:17 am

I'm trying to build 2.84 on my older kubuntu system (12.04) so I can make a tiny tweak to it.

I downloaded and unpacked transmission-2.84.tar.xz and ran configure. It failed on dependencies.
Then, I RTFM and tried to install the dependencies it needs and that failed.

What did I miss? Is 12.04 too old for this version?

TIA

Joe

Thanks for your reply.

I took a look at that post, but I don't see how it applies. I don't have the ppa on this machine. (I had it on my other newer notebook which just died.) Any other thoughts? Maybe I got 2.84 through the backports repo. I haven't worked on this machine for awhile and don't remember.

I just went down 4 levels in the dependency tree for apindicator and it wanted an exact version of libcairo-gobject... but my system wanted to install a newer version with oneiric in the name. I checked all my sources and all of them specify precise or nothing.
