Clutter: Building Clutter

view story

http://www.clutter-project.org – for all the people that wish to build Clutter on Linux without having conflicts with their distribution packages we now have a JHBuild moduleset for tracking Clutter’s development cycle. the instructions are pretty simple; to start, you’ll have to install a recent version of jhbuild (a lot of distributions package old snapshots): git clone git://git.gnome.org/jhbuild cd jhbuild ./autogen.sh && make && make install you won’t require superuser privileges for installing JHBuild, or for building Clutter using JHBuild. then, you will have to download the JHBuild configuration: curl -o ~/.jhbuildrc-clutter http://www.clutter-project.org/jhbuildrc-clutter the last step will build Clutter and its dependencies (except for the GL stack: for that you’re better off using your distribution’s packages): jhbuild -f ~/.jhbuildrc-clutter build done! along with the various libraries, in the moduleset there are meta-modules: meta-clutter: builds Clutter and the basic integration libraries (Clutter-GStreamer, Clutter-GTK) meta-clutter-extra: like meta-clutter, but it includes more integration libraries and NBTK, the Clutter-based Moblin toolkit meta-pyclutter: like meta-clutter, but for the Python bindings happy building, and have fun!
