In the page on how to build synfig the following was written:
Now you need to install all required dependencies. This is easy to do by running a special script shipped with Synfig’s sources:
$ ./1-setup-linux-native.sh

after typing this line i got some errors

I am pasting my terminals content while i was trying to build synfig

Hi and welcome here :slight_smile:
Could you please tell us which version of Linux you are using (Distro/version/bitness)
Also you could check if your user is a member of the “sudo” group.
Last you could try to run sudo ./1-setup-linux-native.sh

Thanks for replying BobSynfig

my user is a member of sudo group
sudo -l -U sagarjoshi
[sudo] password for sagarjoshi:
Matching Defaults entries for sagarjoshi on localhost:
env_reset, mail_badpass,
secure_path=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin

User sagarjoshi may run the following commands on localhost:
(ALL : ALL) ALL

i used the following commands to get some info about versions(commands are in bold):
uname --kernel-name --kernel-release --machine
Linux 4.3.0-kali1-686-pae i686
uname -v

Hi @sagar.00joshi! It looks like you are using a special LiveCD-based linux. Am I right?

I am afraid our automated script doesn’t supports Kali Linux.
In such cases I would recommend to install all required packages manually (see https://synfig-docs-dev.readthedocs.io/en/latest/common/dependencies.html). But I am afraid that such special-purpose Linux distro does not has all required packages.
So, I recommend to install some general-purpose Linux Distro - Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, Fedora, etc.

hi thanks for replying
I am not using live cd based or flash drive based linux
i have installed both windows and linux on my system
if i cant get all the packages i will probably think of installing ubuntu or debian or any other please suggest me which one would be better
as i am a beginner in the world of opensource the question i am going to ask may look silly. ::frowning: curious to know :is it necessary to build befor we can contribute to fix issues? cant we just simply use some kind of ide?


#6

No problem. :slight_smile:

Yes, it is mandatory to build the project AND it is recommended to use IDE. My personal recommendation is to use NetBeans IDE - https://wiki.synfig.org/Dev:IDE_Linux#Netbeans_from_gnu.2Flinux


#7

Issue solved after installing ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
Thanks for helping
