[QGIS-Developer] How to build QGIS 2.99 with 3D?

Ubuntugis is needed to ensure all the dependencies are met for all 
versions of Ubuntu up to and including 16.04. For later versions it is 
not required.

So I believe it should have the files needed to build a version of the 
development master.

However please be aware that Mint is not listed in the distros that are 
directly supported by the Qgis project (the ones that are listed on the 
downloads page). It is not beyond the possibility that a problem could 
occur if Mint uses different versions of packages than one of the 
supported distros uses, because this kind of variation is not unknown in 
derivative distros, compared to the experience when using the natively 
supported distro it is based on. I know for example the Gimp project has 
had problems like this with some distros using different versions of a 
key package than what the Gimp developers were expecting, causing 
unexpected behaviour with their software.

In other words because Mint is not Ubuntu but is only based on it, there 
could potentially be some unexpected issues building packages on it.

Best option is use a supported distro, perhaps running in a virtual 
machine if you don't have a computer running it.
