I cannot find any hint on what dependencies are needed. Sorry if I'm missing the obvious. In the AUR we had a hint about qtwebkit being a dependency. How can I make sure?

@KenjiTakahashi

Personally, I looked at CMakeLists.txt :). But it would indeed be nice to place them in README or sth.

@SanskritFritz

That file didn't help me a lot, because I have no programming knowledge about that. @KenjiTakahashi where do I see the need for qtwebkit for example?

I'll add dependencies section to README file.

QtWebKit is optional dependency -- if you don't have it there just won't be "Use Web" option in preferences.

If compilation fails without QtWebKit it's a bug. Bad thing is that if you install the dependency later you'll need to recompile CopyQ.

Ok I've added the section to README.md file. It seems that other than Qt nothing is really needed. QtWebKit is nice addition to see images in HTML, have stylesheets and crazy but not-so-useful stuff like HTML 5 video.

You may need fontconfig (to use the iconic font) but that is probably included as Qt dependency.

Probably you can compile CopyQ without XFixes X11 extension but as I remember the clipboard pretty much misbehaves.

Thanks, now we know :)
