I am getting the following compilation error when trying to compile the latest stable version of the engine (3.1) on Linux Mint 19 (platform=x11):

[Initial build] Linking Static Library ==> core/
Ranlib Library ==> core/
[Initial build] Linking Program ==> bin/
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lGL
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
scons: *** [bin/] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

All prerequisites appear to be correctly installed. Can somebody help me out please? I would like to compile the engine as I am adding an external C++ module.

After a few hours of trial and error I think I have found the solution. I had to set up the a link to the correct version of libGL, in my case 1.7.0

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
$ sudo ldconfig
