It's all mentioned in the docview.inf help file that is included with

I have no idea why you keep struggling to compile projects, but from
the above message, it seems you are missing the 'libfontconfig1-dev'

or the fpgui.support newsgroup please. I'll try and help you further

I doubt it, DocView is not written with the LCL framework. But anybody
is welcome to port the UI of docview to the LCL framework.
