I want to compile and install a software called Inspectrum for which I have to fulfill a dependency "libliquid-dev" apart from other 5 dependencies listed below;
However, libliquid-dev was not found to be installed by apt-get even after a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 followed up by an apt-get update and an apt-get upgrade. All other dependencies were successfully found and installed via default repositories.
Hence, I started to dig deep. This is Ubuntu 16.04. I.e. Xenial. But, I noticed from the Ubuntu package search that libliquid-dev is not available in Xenial repos. Proof:
However, I noticed that libliquid-dev is availalbe in Artful.
So I went ahead and edited my /etc/apt/sources.list and added the line
deb http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu artful main universe"
This found & installed the libliquid-dev library and therefore I installed Inspectrum successfully. But in the next boot, my system completely broke down. This drives me to ask the following question.
How can I make my Ubuntu 16.04 system be able to install the library libliquid-dev without breaking its functionality?
I know so that my approach described in this question is not correct. I am searching for the most approphriate way of installing libliquid-dev in linux so that I can happily install Inspectrum while keeping operating system intact.
