Pretty Emacs: Compile guide for unsupported platforms

If you are using a platform other than a i386, you will need to compile my Emacs packages yourself. So, here a simple guide how to do this.

  1. Download the source package with:
    apt-get source emacs-snapshot
  2. Install the build-dependencies and some packaging tools:
    sudo apt-get build-dep emacs-snapshot
    sudo apt-get install devscripts fakeroot
  3. Go in the package’s source directory:
    cd emacs-snapshot*
  4. Build it (take about 30 minutes):
    debuild -rfakeroot
  5. Finally, install the newly built packages:
    cd ..
    sudo dpkg -i emacs-snapshot-common*.deb
    sudo dpkg -i emacs-snapshot-el*.deb
    sudo dpkg -i emacs-snapshot-bin-common*.deb
    sudo dpkg -i emacs-snapshot-gtk*.deb
