Notes on compiling Sonic Pi on Debian Stretch

Compiling Sonic Pi on Debian Stretch

This supplements the Linux installation instructions from Sonic Pi:

  • Just install ruby instead of ruby2.1. The default is now 2.2, and it works just fine.

  • Of the "try these" packages, I installed only libffi-dev. I don't know if this is strictly necessary.

  • You must use the Qt5 version of Scintilla because of this bug. Follow the instructions for using Qt5.

  • If you get the error:

      lrelease: could not exec '/usr/lib/...': No such file or directory

    Install qttools5-dev-tools and qt5-default.
