*** Install ***

Various packages depend on upgrades from ppa:savoury1/backports to install. Most of these are now copied here, but if you find that a package dependency is missing (and please write me to let me know, so that I can copy it here!) then it will likely be in ppa:savoury1/backports which can be added as so:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/backports
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/graphics
  sudo apt-get update

Also, installation of libopencv-videoio4.2 requires FFmpeg >= 4.2 so an extra PPA will need to be added to allow for installation of this package. This can be added as follows (again, all required dependencies should now be copied to ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4 but if you find one missing, please write & inform me):

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/graphics
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install libopencv-videoio4.2

For Xenial i386 only: Due to GCC requirements for libvtk6.3 specifically only for i386 installations, do the following to install libvtk6.3 on Xenial i386:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/toolchain
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/graphics
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install libvtk6.3

*** Build ***

This PPA has build dependencies on:


Note: Only VTK 6/7 source requires the GNU R dependency (ppa:savoury1/gnu-r).

Additionally, for Xenial systems only:
