Please help me.
I am trying to install allegro to my debian jessie 8.5 system.
Okay so first I added the PPA of allegro
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:allegro/5.2
Then I did
sudo apt-get update which says:
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/allegro/5.2/ubuntu/dists/jessie/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/noobslab/apps/ubuntu/dists/jessie/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ondrej/php/ubuntu/dists/jessie/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/sublime-text-3/ubuntu/dists/jessie/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
sudo apt-get install liballegro5-dev doesn't locate the package.
So I thought I'd just fix it some other day and decided to build from source. Thus I downloaded the source for allegro (
After extracting it, making a build folder, running
cmake .. from build folder I got the error message:
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:621 (message):
X11 support requires Xcursor library.
Then I did a
sudo apt-get install libxcursor-dev but apt-get cant locate that package.
apt-cache search xcursor says there is a libxcursor1 package but it seems to be already installed in my system.
I've tried 'rm -rf'ing the build folder and trying to cmake again, but it doesn't work.
https://packages.debian.org/jessie/libxcursor-dev says there is a libxcursor-dev but my apt-get can't get it. Also, the PPAs arent being updated. Is it because of my sources.list? It has the following lines:
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib
Now I'm all out of ideas guys, please offer whatever suggestions/links/solutions you have.
