You'll need these Qt (at version 5.12 or higher) modules: QtWidgets (with private headers), QtNetwork, QtNetworkAuth, QtDBus, QtX11Extras

If Qt is not installed from your distribution's package manager, you will need to set the

environment variable to point to the
folder in the Qt version you wish to use.

These dependencies are mandatory: * libXScrnSaver (

in deb-based distros and
in rpm-based)

You can install them all in debian with a command: ```bash $ sudo apt install libxss-dev build-essential libgl-dev libreadline-dev

These dependencies are optional and will be bundled if the `USE_BUNDLED_LIBRARIES` CMake argument is set or your system does NOT have their development packages installed:
 * Lua
 * jsoncpp
 * Qxt

These libraries will be bundled regardless of your system:

  • bugsnag-qt
  • qt-oauth-lib
