If you take a look at debian package details [1], the package depends on
libparse-edid-perl and suggests read-edid. I suggest you to install both to
make sure the agent is able to get more information (though I'm not sure if
libparse-edid-perl is enough to do the job as I'm not currently able to
look at the code).

missing packets or features during installation agent from source ?

You will not get any warnings by installing from sources directly and you
should use cpanm to grab Perl dependencies. However there are some
additional programs that are documented in the README and read-edid is not
part of the list. Thanks for pointing that.
