We don’t generally provide support for compiling Ardour. As new developer this is your entry level exam :smirk: and as casual user you should probably not compile it yourself but rather install a pre-compiled version and make some music instead…

All that being said, you don’t have the required build-dependencies installed. On Debian-based systems like Mint sudo apt-get build-dep ardour can help. The complete list of built-dependencies can be found at https://nightly.ardour.org/list.php#build_deps
