libt3widget requires GNU libtool and a C++ compiler to be compiled. Furthermore, it requires libpcre, libtranscript, libt3key, libt3window, and libunistring. If XCB is available, as well as either dlopen/dlsym/dlclose or libtool's libltdl, the X11 integration module can be built. When GPM is available, it will be used to provide mouse support on the Linux console.

Binary packages for libt3widget are available from the Tilde repositories.
