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.
