Hello, I am setting up i3 with
I’d like to “rice”
dmenu and the easiest way to do so is with patches (
.diff files that I’ve read through to ensure no scripts piped to bash).
It seems that the only way to add patches to
dmenu is if you’ve compiled it from source; I have found no information on adding patches to the
dmenu binary available with
sudo qubes-dom0-update dmenu.
I’m running into a compilation error for
dmenu-5.0 when I run
sudo make clean install.
The compiler says
fatal error: X11/Xlib.h: No such file or directory. Based on some stackexchange searches, it appears that the
Xlib.h file is an “X11 headers” file, and that the compiler is looking for it in
/usr/X11R6/include— which does not exist for me in dom0.
Additional forum searches indicate that the
Xlib.h file is available in the
libx11-dev package. I’ve tried installing these with
sudo qubes-dom0-update <package>, but there is no match for them in the repos.
Assuming I’m on the right track with respect to resolving this compiler error, how can I get the headers file? Should I trust the
libX11-devel package for Fedora 33 from https://pkgs.org/download/libX11-devel?
