How to build and install

Download the source code and enter the source directory

# Clone this repo:
git clone

# Enter the folder:
cd sticky

Mint, Debian, Ubuntu and derivatives:

# Try to build. If this fails, it's probably due to missing dependencies.
# Take note of these packages, install them using apt-get:
dpkg-buildpackage --no-sign

# Once that succeeds, install:
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i sticky*.deb

# If this fails, make note of missing runtime dependencies (check list below),
# install them, repeat previous command (apt-get install -f may also work).

Otherwise (and this is valid anywhere if you want to avoid packaging):

sudo cp -r usr/ /usr/
sudo cp etc/xdg/autostart/sticky.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/
