GuppyCan't even manage to compile piper on ubuntu - I'm missing pygobject3 development packages, and I can't for the life of me figure out what the package name is


actually that package didn't exist, but after installing python-gi-dev meson completes so

also needed sudo apt install librsvg2-dev


So all in all to get a piper that works with the ratbagd from the ppa

git clone
cd piper
git checkout tags/0.2.905
sudo apt install python-gi-dev
meson builddir --prefix=/usr/
ninja -C builddir

This doesn't install it so you you will have to run
every time you want to run it - but on the plus side it doesn't mess up your packages and if the ppa gets fixed you can just use that

Seems like it's working again. I just got an update.
