Personal tools

Install dependencies

  • use aptitude, apt-get, urpmi, or whatever your distro supports
  • you will probably need
    • gtk-dev
    • pango-dev
    • atk-dev
    • qmake from Qt4 (libqt4-dev on Debian) -- this is optional and required only if you do not use auto-tools method
  • Under ubuntu: apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev pulls in everything necessary

Build the binaries

Build using GNU auto-tools

Set up the environment
 export OPENMOKODIR=<svn-checkout>/src/target/OM-2007
 cd $OPENMOKODIR/openmoko-libs
 sudo make install

This will install the libraries in /usr/local/lib. If you prefer a non-system location, edit (and remember that an SVN update may undo that) to add a "--prefix=MYDIR" option for where you want to put the compiled stuff. You can the run "make install" without sudo. One approacj is to put stuff at the source root, by appending the option: "--prefix=$OPENMOKODIR".

Compiling sample apps
 cd $OPENMOKODIR/examples/...
 sudo make install

If you used --prefix in the previous step to place the libraries elsewhere, make sure you edit to reflect that. I guess the proper way to do this is to set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable. You can of course drop the sudo then.

 export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$OPENMOKODIR/lib/pkgconfig
 ./configure ...

Build using QMake (the mickeyl way)

NOTE: qmake is Mickey's preferred build tool, it probably doesn't work if you're not him. Please use autotools...

Build everything in one run using Qmake
 cd <svn-checkout>/src/target/OM-2007
 . ./

Now the applications should be found in ./bin.

Run the examples

Set your theme to OpenMoko

Edit $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 to something like that:

 include "<PATH-to-svn-checkout>/src/target/OM-2007/artwork/themes/openmoko-standard/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

Naked execution


Execution within Xoo

Adjust svn://src/target/OM-2007/devel/scripts/launch-xoo to your needs (you may need to build some dependencies forehand) Then set DISPLAY=:1 and run the examples
