Here's a very recent forum thread about that:

It also includes a link to an older thread. I didn't report this, but I
managed to get git master branch configured on Debian 10 by adding the
debian testing repository (which has KiCad 5.1) and running apt build-dep.
It may have worked even without the testing repo.

The instructions would be quite simple - the most difficult part is to find
and add the repository which matches the wanted version as closely as
possible. That part is what is different for different distros and distro
versions and what changes from time to time (for example when a newer KiCad
is backported for older distro). As far as I know there's something similar
to apt build-dep for rpm based distros.
