Packages & Installers
Make sure you have a working Go environment (Go 1.9 or higher is required). See the install instructions.
You will also need Qt5 and its development headers installed.
Before you can build Telephant you need to install the Go/Qt bindings.
Qt5 dependencies (Ubuntu example)
apt-get --no-install-recommends install build-essential libglib2.0-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libpulse-dev apt-get --no-install-recommends install libqt*5-dev qt*5-dev qt*5-doc-html qml-module-qtquick*
export QT_PKG_CONFIG=true go get -u -v github.com/therecipe/qt/cmd/... $(go env GOPATH)/bin/qtsetup -test=false
go get -d -u -v github.com/muesli/telephant cd $(go env GOPATH)/src/github.com/muesli/telephant $(go env GOPATH)/bin/qtdeploy build desktop .
