Building ScanTailor Advanced and its dependencies

ScanTailor Advanced: https://github.com/4lex4/scantailor-advanced

This is an instruction for building ScanTailor Advanced and its dependencies for Windows and Linux.

Contents:

Dependencies

  1. Boost 1.60.x or higher
  2. libpng 1.x.x
  3. zlib 1.x.x
  4. jpeg 9x
  5. libtiff 4.x.x
  6. Qt 5.6.x or higher (Note: Qt 5.6.x are the latest versions that support Windows XP)

Tools

  1. CMake 3.9.x or higher

ScanTailor building options

Usage: cmake -D <option>=<value> ...

Useful options:

  • CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<path> - install ScanTailor Advanced into the path after building.
  • PORTABLE_VERSION=[ON|OFF] - whether to build portable version. If enabled, ScanTailor tries to store its settings and files inside the application folder if possible, else ScanTailor stores those in the system specific paths. If disabled, the settings and files are always stored in the system specific paths.

Instructions

Windows

Supported toolchains for Windows are MinGW and MSVC.

Preparing to building

  1. Download the sources of ScanTailor Advanced.

  2. Clone this project. (Push the 'Clone or download' button above)

  3. Unpack ScanTailor Advanced sources into a folder.

  4. Create the empty folder named libs near the ScanTailor sources folder (but not inside).

  5. Download and unpack the sources of all the dependencies listed into the libs folder.

  6. Unpack the folder of this project there.
    You must have gotten a catalog structure similar to this:

    ..\
     |
     |-- libs
     |   |-- boost_1_xx_x
     |   |-- jpeg-9
     |   |-- libpng-1.x.xx
     |   |-- scantailor-libs-build-master
     |   |-- jpeg-9x
     |   |-- qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.x.x
     |   |-- tiff-4.x.x
     |   |-- zlib-1.x.x
     |   
     |-- scantailor-advanced-1.x.x
     |
    
  7. Install CMake.

Building with MinGW

Tools

  1. MinGW-w64 (for 32 and 64 bit Windows; posix and seh/dwarf versions recommended)
  2. msys2

Preparing tools

  1. Install mingw64 into the path C:\mingw64 / C:\mingw32
  2. Install msys2 into the path C:\msys64 / C:\msys32

    1. go to: My Computer -> Right click -> Properties -> Advanced system settings;
    2. click Environment variables;
    3. Find Path variable in the system variables tab and paste ;C:\mingw64\bin / ;C:\mingw32\bin at the end of its value.

Building dependencies

  1. Run script configure_msys.bat with administrative permissions.

  2. Run script configure_libs_x32.bat / configure_libs_x64.bat

  3. Open the command prompt (cmd) and enter, having ... replaced with your folder containing the libs folder:

    cd /d "...\libs\scantailor-libs-build-master"
    mkdir build && cd build
    cmake -G "MinGW Makefiles" --build ..
    
    mingw32-make -j %NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS%
    

Building ScanTailor

  1. Open the command prompt (cmd) and enter, having ...\scantailor-advanced-1.x.x replaced with your path to scantailor-advanced sources:

    mkdir build && cd build
    cmake -G "MinGW Makefiles" --build ..
    
    mingw32-make -j %NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS%
    

Building with MSVC

Tools

  1. Visual Studio (version 2015 or higher [with the Win XP compability package] required)
  2. Jom

Preparing tools

  1. Place jom.exe into the %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Jom\ folder.
  2. Add Jom into the PATH environment variable:
    1. go to: My Computer -> Right click -> Properties -> Advanced system settings;
    2. click Environment variables;
    3. Find Path variable in the system variables tab and paste ;%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Jom\ at the end of its value.

Linux

Getting dependencies

Linux users have two options here: download them from their repositories or build them from sources.

Downloading from repositories

  1. Just download CMake and dependencies developing packages from the repository and then build scantailor. Developing packages are usually have -devel or -dev suffix.

    Examples:

    Ubuntu sudo apt-get install gcc-7 g++-7 cmake libjpeg-dev libpng-dev libtiff5 libtiff5-dev libboost-test1.63-dev libboost-test1.63.0 qtbase5-dev qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libqt5opengl5-dev libpthread-stubs0-dev
    OpenSUSE sudo zypper install gcc7 gcc7-c++ cmake libjpeg8-devel libpng16-devel libtiff5 libtiff-devel libboost_test1_66_0 libboost_test1_66_0-devel libqt5-qtbase-devel libqt5-qttools-devel pthread-stubs-devel

Building from sources

  1. Install CMake, gcc, g++ and developing packages of Xrender, fontconfig, pthread-stubs, X11, OpenGL (Mesa) from your repository. Developing packages are usually have -devel or -dev suffix.
    (Example of the package names on OpenSUSE: libXrender-devel, fontconfig-devel, pthread-stubs-devel, libX11-devel, Mesa-devel).
    See Qt Linux requirements article for more information.

  2. Download and unpack dependencies sources.

  3. Configure some make environment variables:

    export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib64 -Wl,--rpath=/usr/local/lib -Wl,--rpath=/usr/local/lib64"
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/lib64
    export CFLAGS="-fPIC"
    export CXXFLAGS="-fPIC"
    
  4. Build libjpeg, zlib, then libpng and then libtiff with

    ./configure
    make -j `nproc`
    sudo make install
    
  5. Build Qt:

    ./configure -platform linux-g++ -release -shared \
    -system-zlib -system-libpng -system-libjpeg -system-freetype \
    -skip qt3d -skip qtactiveqt -skip qtandroidextras -skip qtcanvas3d -skip qtcharts -skip qtconnectivity \
    -skip qtdatavis3d -skip qtdeclarative -skip qtdoc -skip qtgamepad -skip qtgraphicaleffects -skip qtlocation \
    -skip qtmacextras -skip qtmultimedia -skip qtnetworkauth -skip qtpurchasing -skip qtquickcontrols \
    -skip qtquickcontrols2 -skip qtremoteobjects -skip qtscript -skip qtscxml -skip qtsensors \
    -skip qtspeech -skip qtsvg -skip qtvirtualkeyboard -skip qtwayland -skip qtwebchannel \
    -skip qtwebengine -skip qtwebsockets -skip qtwebview -skip qtwinextras -skip qtxmlpatterns \
    -nomake examples -nomake tests -opensource -confirm-license -no-ltcg
    make -j `nproc`
    sudo make install
    

    After building and installing copy findqt.sh and findqt.csh into /etc/profile.d/ folder then enter sudo . ~/.profile && . /etc/profile in console to apply the changes made instantly or add Qt into PATH yourself.

  6. Build boost:

    ./bootstrap.sh
    ./b2 -q --with-test toolset=gcc link=shared threading=multi -j `nproc` stage
    sudo ./b2 -q --with-test toolset=gcc link=shared threading=multi install
    

Building ScanTailor

  1. Enter, having .../scantailor-advanced-1.x.x replaced with your path to scantailor-advanced sources:

    cd ".../scantailor-advanced-1.x.x"
    mkdir build && cd build
    cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" --build ..
    make -j `nproc`
    
  2. Optionally, install ScanTailor Advanced with:

    sudo make install
    

    Note: you can use sudo make uninstall from the build dir to uninstall ScanTailor Advanced later.

Packaging

  1. Build ScanTailor Advanced following the instructions above.

  2. Use cpack -G <generator> [options] to create a package for your platform. Enter cpack --help to see the options and generators available.

    Examples:

    1. To create a Linux DEB package use: cpack -G "DEB"
    2. To create a Linux RPM package use: cpack -G "RPM"
      Note: rpm-build package has to be installed.
    3. To create an installer for Windows use: cpack -G "NSIS"
      Note: NSIS has to be installed.
