Meson build system

Asked by apostol on 2018-10-02

I have uploaded a package (https://launchpad.net/~faliagas/+archive/ubuntu/fidlab) which uses the meson build system. The package does not build by the online launchpad builder because the meson build system is not installed by default. How do I get the meson build system installed?

You'll need to build-depend on some package that provides it. That's the case for almost all build systems, one way or another.

Adding meson to your Build-Depends in debian/control would likely be a good start. You should ideally test-build this sort of thing locally, e.g. using https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SimpleSbuild.
