Trouble installing Yakut -- missing header files for ALSA/libjack

Hello there, I’m attempting to install yakut onto a fresh VM created from ubuntu-20.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso. It looks like an issue either with a missing package “jack”, and/or a missing “alsa/asoundlib.h” header file.

Wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to resolve this?

You seem to be using a Debian-based distro. If this is correct, then you can fix this problem by installing the missing packages with headers (this is mentioned in the README):

sudo apt install libasound2-dev libjack-dev
