For users wanting to install ProjectM as a visualizer for their desktop, there is a dependency issue in the present
projectm-pulseaudio package. To resolve it, after installing
projectm-pulseaudio do the following;
sudo apt install ttf-dejavu-core
(You can also use your favourite package manager, just install
That will install the DejaVu core font set, which will stop
projectM-pulseaudio from package
projectm-pulseaudio from acting stupid. Figured I would leave this to stop people from ripping their hair out trying to figure it out.
This might be resolved at a later date, please post if the dependency issue has been resolved so this thread can be binned.
