Yes I tried all that a few times, but just ended up with different errors...so not sure if I'm doing something wrong (not using proper or the exact commands), the instructions are wrong, or something needs done to the rpi beyond those, or maybe it simply won't work not matter what is done. That is the basis for my question...has anyone been able to make it go?the README in the source gives all necessary information: requirements, build requirements, build commands, etc.
Kind of. Before I installed libgtksourceview-3.0-dev, if I clicked Meld in the menu, a simple GUI would pop up! The GUI said something close to "Meld needs GtkSourceView 3.14 or later to run".
You got meld to open properly?
