I try to compile a project, I got the source files from git hub.

But when I launch make, the compilation complains that the dependency on wayland-server is not met.

However, I have wayland installed. On my system, libwayland-server.so.0 is located in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

When looking at the Makefile of the project, I see that the variable LIBDIR is set to /usr/lib

So I suspect the compiler is not searching for wayland-server lib inside /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

What is the way to go so as to fix this compilation problem ? Should I modify the make file, in which way ?


Use command

Export LIBDIR=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:$LIBDIR

And try again. If it works, put this line in your ~/.bashrc
