@yochananmarqos All valid points, and now fixed — thank you. While originally working on the packaging I kind of got distracted trying to convince upstream to actually fix some of their weird build and install issues, but that hasn't happened yet.

@caleb: This depends on sdl2 according to namcap.

It doesn't seem to qualify as an 'any' package and isn't using the system LDFLAGS:

lite E: ELF file ('usr/bin/lite') found in an 'any' package.
lite W: ELF file ('usr/bin/lite') lacks FULL RELRO, check LDFLAGS.

You forgot the license.

@caleb Ah, alright. We'll just have to hope and see, then. Thanks, and good luck to you.

@Raxlxor There isn't an easy/obvious way. The upstream project is deliberately keeping this difficult to install as a system package and pushing hard for per-user home directory "installations". See issue here. I think right now you'd either have to build the plugin as a package itself and add it to /usr/share/lite/plugins or symlink that system folder to your user or some other shared location. There is probably a one-line fix that could add a $HOME relative path to the plugin search, but it would have to be a patch we applied unless ou can convince the upstream project to co-operate.

How would we go about using plugins and w/e?
