    I just wanted to say that when installing Felgo in Ubuntu 17.10 i could not install libglib2.0-dev(it wasn’t present in the repository ) so tried without it and it seems to work fine. What are that package used for? If it isn’t needed when maybe this page should be updated=)?

    Hi Isak,

    Thanks for reporting the issue – we’ll have a closer look and update the docs if necessary.

    Let us know if you run into troubles or experience issues without the lib!




    Hey Isak, I had the same problem. The lib actually does exist but there is a “bug” in the Felgo documentation in the form of a hidden character (&#8203) on the end of libglib2.0-dev. This character does not count as whitespace in BASH so on copy/paste the package name get munged, causing apt to not find it.

    HTML generators, right?

    Hope that helps. -sandman

    P.S. here is the place with the “bug”

    Thanks Mike, aka Sherlock Holmes, what a nice find!

    There is indeed an invisible hidden character at the end of libglib2.0-dev, already in our document sources (before HTML generation). There is a bounty set to 1000$, dead or alive, to find out how it ended up there! 😉

    We will update the doc with the fix.
