223 <h2>Dependencies</h2>
224 <p class="default"> The following figure illustrates the compile
225 time / linker dependencies.</p>

238 <strong>liblscp</strong> <strong>LinuxSampler</strong> <strong>jlscp</strong></pre>
239 </div>
240 <p class="default"> Or again in words: you have to compile and
241 install libgig before being able to compile and use LinuxSampler. You
242 don't need libgig for compiling and using QSampler, but it's definitely
243 recommended. You cannot compile nor use QSampler without liblscp
244 though. As QSampler is communicating with LinuxSampler via TCP, there
245 is no linker dependency between them, but of course you still need to
246 have LinuxSampler installed to be able to use QSampler (either locally
247 or on any other computer in your network). JSampler is also communicating
248 with LinuxSampler via TCP, so there is no linker dependency between them
249 either. JSampler requires jlscp though. You have to compile and install
250 libgig before being able to compile and use gigedit.</p>
