0000190: Bulding fails on Arch Linux due to outdated dependency
The script linux-install_dependencies fails to build the package vrpn:

vrpn_Connection.C: En la función ‘int vrpn_start_server(const char*, char*, char*, const char*)’:
vrpn_Connection.C:2426:32: error: el agregado ‘vrpn_start_server(const char*, char*, char*, const char*)::wait status’ tiene un tipo incompleto y no se puede definir
                     union wait status;
make: *** [Makefile:549: pc_linux64/vrpn_Connection.o] Error 1

I googled the error and got the following: [^]

So I did what the link suggested: I unzipped the in dependencies/share/arch and changed the line union wait status to int wait in the file vrpn_Connection.C. After recompressing and running the script the error was gone.
1.- download openvibe 1.3.0, either sources or clone git repo
2.- sudo sh linux-install dependencies

The suggested fix indeed seems to address the problem also for Ubuntu 18.04, at least for the build part (I didn't test the vrpn connections themselves).

Thanks for the report!
