I’ve been trying to build gnome-software based on the steps in the README. When I run the first step (running meson), I found that I kept running into (undocumented!) missing dependencies, so I just kept running meson and apt installing the dependencies as best as I could. I’m not mentioning this just to rant, I’m mentioning it in case it’s relevant to the error below.
Finally, meson has stopped giving me dependency errors, but now it’s giving me this message:
subprojects/gtk/gdk/wayland/meson.build:81:4: ERROR: Sandbox violation: Tried to grab file primary-selection-unstable-v1.xml outside current (sub)project.
Which is an error I can’t get out of by just covering my eyes and running apt. Any insights?
