Subject: scrcpy install from source
My computer has Ubuntu 22.04 on it.

I'm trying to install scrcpy from source using the instructions found

Scrcpy is an app that lets you control an android device such as a phone
from a computer.  Once I start it, the phone's screen appears on the
computer screen and I click on  stuff instead of tapping it.  The latest
version(2.3.1), also captures the sound on the android device and sends
it to the computer's speakers.  The versions in the Ubuntu repository
and the snap store don't do this.   When I try to install, a bunch of
text scrolls by.  At the end, it throws 2 error messages and stops.

Found ninja-1.10.1 at /usr/bin/ninja
[64/64] Linking target app/scrcpy
lto-wrapper: warning: using serial compilation of 2 LTRANS jobs

/home/delboy/.local/bin/meson install --no-rebuild
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.

Meson wasn't installed prior to me following the instructions at the url
above, so it was installed right before I tried to install scrcpy.  Does
anyone have any idea how I could make this install?  Thanks.
