How to run Openmoko Apps on PC
- use aptitude, apt-get, urpmi, or whatever your distro supports
- you will probably need
- qmake from Qt4 (libqt4-dev on Debian) -- this is optional and required only if you do not use Autotools method
- Under Ubuntu for using GNU Autotools:
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libecal1.2-dev automake1.10 libxosd-dev
- Under Debian for using GNU Autotools:
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libecal1.2-dev automake libxosd-dev
Build the binaries
Build using GNU Autotools
You need to have libtool installed
sudo apt-get install libtool
cd <svn-checkout>/src/target/gsm ./autogen.sh make sudo make install
This will build and install libgsmd required by the next step.
Set up the environment
export OPENMOKODIR=<svn-checkout>/src/target/OM-2007 cd $OPENMOKODIR/openmoko-libs ./autogen.sh make sudo make install
This will install the libraries in /usr/local/lib. If you prefer a non-system location, edit autogen.sh (and remember that an SVN update may undo that) to add a "--prefix=MYDIR" option for where you want to put the compiled stuff. You can the run "make install" without sudo. One approach is to put stuff at the source root, by appending the option: "--prefix=$OPENMOKODIR".
Compiling sample apps
cd $OPENMOKODIR/examples/<sample app> ./autogen.sh make sudo make install
If you used --prefix in the previous step to place the libraries elsewhere, make sure you edit autogen.sh to reflect that. I guess the proper way to do this is to set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable. You can of course drop the sudo then.
... export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$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 . ./makevars.sh qmake make
Now the applications should be found in ./bin.
Run the examples
Set your theme to Openmoko
Set the GTK2_RC_FILES variable before running Openmoko applications:
Or edit $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 to something like this:
However, this will make all Gtk2 apps run with the Openmoko theme.
bin/openmoko-stylus-demo bin/openmoko-finger-demo bin/openmoko-chordmaster
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
