Working my way through Vala. I am still trying to get the Slingshot App to work, but ran into another compiling issue that I can’t figure out.
The are zillions of answers on the net for Java, but only few threads for Vala.
When I try to compile, I get the error message:
/usr/bin/ld: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libm.so.6: error adding symbols:
DSO missing from command line collect2:
error: ld returned 1 exit status
I found an answer on StackOverFlow, that recommends to install the missing library. Searching on Ubuntu Packages, the closest package in name I found, was
what I installed and added to the meson build file, what now looks like this:
Compiling that returns:
Dependency libm17n-dev found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake)
meson.build:5:4: ERROR: Dependency "libm17n-dev" not found,
tried pkgconfig and cmake
sudo apt install libm17n-dev
libm17n-dev is already the newest version (1.8.0-2)
Am I on the right track?
