I am trying to install elementaryOS (Juno)'s terminal emulator on Mint 19 Tessa. I checked the instruction at the git hub site https://github.com/elementary/terminal, and I installed all dependencies by using
sudo apt install.
After I ran the instructed command
meson build --prefix=/usr, I saw the error output as following:
Native dependency granite found: NO found '0.5' but need: '>=5.2.0' meson.build:25:0: ERROR: Invalid version of dependency, need 'granite' ['>=5.2.0'] found '0.5'.
I found the version of this library for Ubuntu is different (though Ver 0.5 is the latest for Ubuntu), but Debian's one is satisfiable. So, I went to Debian package site and downloaded a Debian package libgranite-dev (5.2.3-1), but it wouldn't be installed because the GDebi installer said the dependency was not satisfiable.
How could I cope with this situation to run meson successfully?
