===== How to compile the MagiChat GUI Client in Linux Mint 18.3 =====

This guide is for Linux Mint 18.3, but should be applicable to any debian
or ubuntu based distro.

Other distros will need to use their own packages for dependencies.

==== Step 1. Install Pre-requisits ====

    sudo apt-get install build-essential qt5-default liblua5.3-dev git

==== Step 2. Clone the repository ====

    git clone https://gitlab.com/magickabbs/MagiChatClient/

==== Step 4. Compile ====

    cd MagiChatClient
    qmake
    make

==== Step 5. Install (Optional) ====

You may now copy the MagiChat_Client executable to /usr/local/bin if 
you wish (or somewhere else in your path.) There is also an icon you
can create a desktop entry if you wish.

Otherwise, just run ./MagiChat_Client.
