Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Hi,

On my Debian stretch system, I needed to install the package libxkbfile-dev to avoid the following error when running ./setup.py build:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./setup.py", line 2036, in <module>
    **pkgconfig("x11", "xtst", "xfixes", "xkbfile")
  File "./setup.py", line 624, in exec_pkgconfig
    raise Exception("ERROR: cannot find a valid pkg-config entry
    for %s using PKG_CONFIG_PATH=%s" % (" or ".join(options),
    os.environ.get("PKG_CONFIG_PATH", "(empty)")))
Exception: ERROR: cannot find a valid pkg-config entry for xkbfile or
libxkbfile using PKG_CONFIG_PATH=(empty)

So I think the libxkbfile-dev package should be mentioned in the README after "On Debian-based OSes".

Done in r12873, also added better links to the wiki documentation which is much more complete:

Closing, feel free to request more updates.
