I'm having issues with dependencies.

a-System-Product-Name:~/Downloads/gtkhtml-4.10.0$ dpkg -L gtkhtml
dpkg-query: package 'gtkhtml' is not installed
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.
c-System-Product-Name:~/Downloads/gtkhtml-4.10.0$ dpkg --info gtkhtml
dpkg-deb: error: error reading archive magic version number from file gtkhtml: Is a directory
c-System-Product-Name:~/Downloads/gtkhtml-4.10.0$ sudo apt install gtkhtml
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package gtkhtml
c-System-Product-Name:~/Downloads/gtkhtml-4.10.0$ apt-cache policy gtkhtml
N: Unable to locate package gtkhtml

I'm off to look for gtkhtml and biblesync.

Found gtkhtml but I think it's too old.

configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old. Make sure it
is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full
path to pkg-config.

I'm having a hard time finding gtkhtml-


Found it at Github:


Found biblesync too!


BTW, those 2 pkg's have dependencies that have to be installed first according to the ReadMe file on Github. This is taking longer than I had thought.
Looks like a slow progress to getting the tar.bz installed.
One step at a time.

I'm looking all over this page and I don't see what to click on to download gtkhtml.

Does anyone see where I'd download it?

Clicking on the green "Code" button will make a little box pop up which gives you the URL for the git repo that will allow you to clone the repo, or you have the option of downloading the archive as a .zip.

In order to clone the repo with git, you just copy the URL to your clipboard and then use the git clone command and paste the URL for the repo.
So in this case, you'd use:
Bash:
git clone https://github.com/chopins/gtkhtml.git
Otherwise, download and extract the .zip file.

Personally, when getting things from github, I prefer to clone the repo using git, rather than using the .zip option. If you use git, you can update the repo at any time by issuing a git pull command. Whereas with the .zip - you'll have to download a fresh zip in order to update. The zips don't usually contain any of the git history for the repo. Only the code.

However you get the code on your machine - the next step is to follow any instructions for building and installing from source. Sometimes all of the instructions will be in README type files. Other times the project may have a wiki on their github with complete build instructions. And if you're lucky - they'll have both.

I haven't looked at this particular project in any detail. But the instructions should be there somewhere!

Almost every dependency APT is unable to locate.

This is not working out as well as I had hoped.
If I have to download every pkg from GitHub or individual pkg's from Ubuntu it will be very hard to do.

I've got 16 more dependencies to check on.
