Error in compiling unity-greeter from source

Asked by Vincent Zvikaramba on 2015-05-13

I receive a compile error when I try to compile the package from source after getting all the build-deps for the package and running dpkg-buildpackage. A sample of the output is as follows:

vincent@vincent:~/unity-greeter/unity-greeter-15.04.2$ sudo dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -nc
