Comment 26 for bug 680628

> 1) I added the 3 lucid source repositories to my sources.list for the apt-get build-dep poppler cairo; and this installed more than 100 things... ouch.

I did not ask you for doing that. Please remove any extra entry which you have added to your sources.list. After that run "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" in your terminal window. "apt-get build-dep poppler cairo" installs only binary packages.

Did you do the "sudo apt-get install ..." commands in the beginning? Did you execute the "wget" commands? Did you change into the new directories and execute "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot" there? Did the "apt-get build-dep poppler cairo" command succeed?

Can you run the following commands in a terminal window:

sudo apt-get install dh-autoreconf libxrender-dev libx11-dev libpixman-1-dev libxcb-shm0-dev

Then go into the appropriate directories and run the "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot" commands again.
