Installing Dependencies

On Debian 8.x (jessie) using Qt4:

 sudo aptitude install build-essential cmake libtag1c2a libtag1-dev libqt4-dev libqt4-sql-sqlite \
		libphonon-dev libboost-dev libboost-thread-dev zlib1g-dev libgnutls-dev libz-dev \
		libqjson-dev libqca2-dev libx11-dev pkg-config libqca2-plugin-ossl \
		libidn2-0-dev speex libsamplerate0-dev libfftw3-dev libgsasl7-dev liblastfm-dev \
		libquazip-dev qtkeychain-dev libgnutls28-dev libsparsehash-dev libvlc-dev \
