Got for KDENEON mate. You get a nice solid 18.04 base system and the latest desktop crack from KDE. The Plasma desktop is fast and rarely has any problems, you will not be disappointed.

I'm on KDENEON 18.04 as well, isn't that lucky!

A good technique to use when compiling and there is an error saying a file is missing to to use apt-file like this;

Code: [Select]
reaver@travella:~$ apt-file search khrplatform.h
emscripten: /usr/share/emscripten/system/include/KHR/khrplatform.h
libegl1-mesa-dev: /usr/include/KHR/khrplatform.h
libogre-1.9-dev: /usr/include/OGRE/RenderSystems/GLES2/KHR/khrplatform.h
libsdl2-dev: /usr/include/SDL2/SDL_opengles2_khrplatform.h
python-kivy: /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/kivy/graphics/khrplatform.h
python3-kivy: /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/kivy/graphics/khrplatform.h
thunderbird-dev: /usr/include/thunderbird/angle/KHR/khrplatform.h

Then you can see which file it is after, and which package it belongs to. So now you can use; 

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libegl1-mesa-dev

There is a problem with the package, the dependency in the CONTROL file is set to libcurl3, but it should be libcurl4. The two cannot be installed together so if you, apt-get -f install some other packages will get kicked out. I have fixed the package and repackaged it. Here is a link to it.
