Build Looking Glass Client from Git


Please only clone from Git if you’re a developer, and know what you’re doing. Looking Glass requires git submodules that must be setup and updated when building. Source code downloads from the website come bundled with the necessary submodules.

Developers can clone the source code repo with git.

git clone --recursive

When checking out different commits or versions use

git checkout **commit or Versiontag** --recurse-submodules

or run after checkout:

git submodule update --recursive

Building on Ubuntu

you will probably need to install gawk

sudo apt install gawk
