The best way to do it is to backport the janus packages that are in Debian testing.

You could try requesting that in the Debian backports mailing list:

Or attempt it yourself:

Though my daily driver is Jessie-based MX Linux, I've recently learned how to set up and use various generic Debian QEMU pbuilder machines on this, so I can throw the testing sources into the maw of a Stretch build environment and see what comes out the other end in var/cache/pbuilder. Let me see if it is a simple backport.

Edit: No problem with a simple backport of 64-bit packages, so a simple backport per the wiki procedure should also work for you.

If you can't install libmicrohttp-dev on your system, something is wrong with your software sources--the normal list is in /etc/apt/sources.list. Can you try installing inxi and giving the output of

Code: Select all
inxi -r

though if your main Debian repo is not working, you won't be able to install inxi and instead will have to give us the output of
Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.1.0, Pale Moon 27.5.0, Liquorix kernel 4.12-10, mpv 0.27.0, Kodi 17.3, 0ad 0.0.22, Mesa 13.0.6

Thanks for the advice.
I managed to install Janus without it.
Although I still have some issues with regards to getting this working.
