Hello, is there anyone?


Did you look at this post?

I have 16.04 and I ran into the same type of issues so I think pressing no would solve you problem probably.

Hope it helps.



Uh huh. Thank you

There is no such package “libgl1-mesa-dev-hwe-18.04”. There is a package called “libgl1-mesa-dev” however, so if you edit the script and change it to that, it should run. I’m pretty sure if you compile from the nightlies or git master this is fixed.


Perfect answer
It solved for me (ubuntu 18.04 / oF 9.8)
Then I got this issue but @arturo got the other answer.

Thanks to community

Hey, i don’t know why but this solve the problem for me. open install_dependencies.sh and delete ${XTAG} that is after libgl1-mesa-dev. it works to me.
