I'm trying to compile from the latest master git repository and I'm getting this error.

$ make [libi3] CC libi3/fakeconfigurenotify.c In file included from libi3/fakeconfigurenotify.c:14:0: include/libi3.h:22:25: fatal error: pango/pango.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. make: * [libi3/fakeconfigurenotify.o] Error 1

I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 and prior to compiling I did $ sudo apt-get build-dep i3-wm

I was able to successfully build by getting all dependencies resolved. Apparently, the build-dep command won't install all dependencies on a vanilla install of Ubuntu 12.04. But after I installed full gnome, all works well. Thanks!

You are missing dependencies obviously. Please use our auto-builder instead, see
