libtinfo5 needed for Ubuntu 20 install

I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 (via KDE Neon) and I needed to install the libtinfo5 package to run the linux binary. Should this be listed as a dependency in the Getting Started or Tutorial?

It is my understanding that building from source on ubuntu 20 makes scopes depend on libtinfo6 instead, and in fact running ldd scopes on my machine doesn't even mention libtinfo at all (although I know it to be required). If I recall correctly Leonard builds scopes on an ubuntu 18.10 system, and there was a recent migration from libtinfo5 to 6. We could either change the documentation to mention this issue or simply offer two different Linux builds.
