==========================================================================

*** Install ***

NOTE FOR ALL: Various packages here (eg. alsa-plugins-extra, chromaprint, gstreamer1.0-libav, libquicktime, mplayer, obs-studio) are built against FFmpeg 4.4 and depend on FFmpeg 4.4 to run. To install any such packages depending on FFmpeg 4.4 do these steps first for successful installation:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/multimedia
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Note for Xenial & Bionic: The obs-studio package is built against a newer display driver stack than in Xenial or Bionic, so for this an additional PPA is required. Add this command at the top of the list above to install:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/display

This will upgrade the display stack including Mesa, Xserver, Wayland, and many more, so be sure you want this before proceeding. As always, remember to do a full backup prior to such major upgrading of the current system!

Notes for Xenial: Some packages are built with and require GCC >= 7 (such as Guitarix and Intel-MediaSDK). Default Xenial GCC is 5.4.0 so GCC 7.5.0 built at ppa:savoury1/toolchain is copied to ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4 making it easier for guitarix and libmfx1 installation on Xenial-based systems.

Also, gstreamer1.0-qt5 & obs-studio do not build with old Qt 5.5.1 (Xenial default) so they are built with Qt 5.9.5 and require Qt >= 5.9 to install. Thus, to install gstreamer1.0-qt5 or obs-studio on Xenial these steps are necessary first (Qt/KDE upgrades go together due incompatibility issues):

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/qt-xenial
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/kde-xenial
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/multimedia
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Finally, various packages require GTK >= 3.22.0 (Xenial default is 3.18.9) so install of these packages requires ppa:savoury1/gtk-xenial as follows:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/gtk-xenial
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

*** Build ***

This PPA has build dependencies on:

  ppa:savoury1/build-tools
  ppa:savoury1/backports
  ppa:savoury1/python
  ppa:savoury1/fonts
  ppa:savoury1/graphics
  ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4

Additionally, for Xenial and Bionic:

  ppa:savoury1/tex-2019
  ppa:savoury1/display

Additionally, for Xenial only:

  ppa:savoury1/gcc-defaults-7
  ppa:savoury1/gtk-xenial
  ppa:savoury1/qt-xenial
  ppa:savoury1/vlc3

Note: Both the display & vlc3 PPA are only required for obs-studio builds and qt-xenial is only required for building gstreamer1.0-qt5 (for Xenial).
