I've updated the instructions on the webpage and the README in the master 
branch to make that point clearer. Although this doesn't explain the error you 
were seeing initially about the missing include files either. Creating the 
build directory directly in home and then running 'cmake ..' inside it, cmake 
would've just straight up complained that there is no CMakelists.txt in the 
parent directory. :-)

The paralist package is not part of Ubuntu's texlive default installation:

➜ apt-cache search paralist            
texlive-latex-extra - TeX Live: LaTeX additional packages 

Install the texlive-latex-extra package to get ahold of the missing paralist 
package. I've tested this on 19.10, but it should be included in 18.04 as well.

We've been reluctant to add distribution specific package install instructions 
to our documentation in the past. The reason being the vast amount of different 
distributions out there and packages are named differently in different 
distros. But I can see your point that figuring out which packages need to be 
installed might not be straightforward. Adding a separate DEPENDENCIES file 
with that information is something we're considering.

I've added you to the list now and you should've received a confirmation mail. 
There is also a searchable, public archive of the list available at:


Thanks a lot for your feedback.
