This guide will step you through building the looking glass client on Debian and Ubuntu based systems from source, before you attempt to do this you should have a basic understanding how to use the shell.
Before building you will need to install the following packages on your system
You can do this by running the following command:
sudo apt-get install git libsdl2-dev libsdl2-ttf-dev libssl-dev libspice-protocol-dev libfontconfig1-dev libx11-dev fonts-freefont-ttf
Cloning the Repository
To obtain the source simply clone the repository at github using the following command (or you may go to github and download the zip archive):
git clone https://github.com/gnif/LookingGlass.git .
Building the Client
Simply change directory into the client and run make.
You should now have the file 'looking-glass-client' inside the bin directory.
