my bad. i'm on Zetsy, actually (Ubuntu 17.04).
i simply followed our instructions and it just worked.

- cloned Subsurface
- pulled all the packages with one apt-get command from INSTALL
- called build.sh
- Subsurface was ready to run

Zetsy has Qt version 5.7.1.

i think we were supposed to support 5.5..or was it 5.6.
what errors are you getting?
