Not at the moment. Dual booted before, but the current desktop is
pure Win10 Pro. I'll get back to Linux at some point, but am
currently swimming in the Android pool.

The build process of Textadept is fully automated, it even resolves and builds 3rd party dependencies for you like Scintilla and the Lua 5.3 interpreter that it incorporates. I think the only thing you should provide is gtk3-dev & gcc.

Noted and thank you.
