Craft/Linux

Preparations

My OS doesn't offer python 3.6

See https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv

Ubuntu

sudo apt update
sudo apt install python3 python3-pip python3-venv build-essential git wget libxcb-xinerama0-dev
sudo apt-get build-dep qt5-default #on new distros qt5-default is not available anymore try qtbase5-dev instead

Other

See https://wiki.qt.io/Building_Qt_5_from_Git

Install Craft

 python3 -c "$(wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/KDE/craft/master/setup/CraftBootstrap.py -O -)" --prefix ~/CraftRoot

Use craft

Every time you want to use craft in a new shell, you need to set up the craft environment, first:

source ~/CraftRoot/craft/craftenv.sh

In this shell, now craft is usable, e.g. to build Kate with all dependencies:

craft kate
