First, install the required packages with APT.
sudo apt update && sudo apt install git build-essential gcc cmake qt5-default qtmultimedia5-dev qtwebengine5-dev
Next, clone the repository with Git:
git clone https://github.com/huggle/huggle3-qt-lx.git && cd huggle3-qt-lx && git submodule init && git submodule update && git checkout tags/3.4.10
Finally, to build and install Huggle, run this script:
./configure --extension --web-engine cd release make sudo make install sudo ldconfig cd
If you did this correctly, you should have a working install of Huggle! To start Huggle, type:
