Installing Chez Scheme 9.4 on Linux Mint LMDE

I am trying to install Chez Scheme 9.4 on a Linux Mint LMDE system. Chez Scheme requires GNU make, gcc, header files and libraries for ncurses, and header files and libraries for X windows.

I successfully installed ncurses with the command

sudo apt-get install ncurses-dev
, and I have a directory
/etc/X11
with lots of stuff in it. Per the Chez Scheme BUILDING file I ran
./configure
, which worked properly, then
sudo make install
, which failed with error
X11/Xlib.h: No such file or directory
.

I'm not familiar with X windows. Can someone please tell me exactly what packages I need to install to have the required X windows header files and libraries?

Answer

I installed sudo apt-get install libx11-dev and the compile completed successfully.
