Building MiniGUI 4.0

This repo contains some scripts and dependencies to build MiniGUI 4.0.x

This instruction assumes that you are using Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS or 18.04 LTS.

Note that, we have switched the repos to branch rel-4-0.

Prerequisites

You should run apt install <package_name> to install the following packages on your Ubuntu Linux.

  • Building tools:
    • git
    • gcc/g++
    • binutils
    • autoconf/automake
    • libtool
    • make
    • cmake
    • pkg-config
  • Dependent libraries:
    • libgtk2.0-dev
    • libjpeg-dev
    • libpng12-dev (libpng-dev on Ubuntu Linux 18.04 instead)
    • libfreetype6-dev
    • libinput-dev
    • libdrm-dev
    • libsqlite3-dev
    • libxml2-dev
    • libssl1.0-dev
    • electric-fence (used by mg-tests)

If you are using Ubuntu Linux 18.04, please install libpng-dev. Ubuntu 18.04 does not provide support for libpng12-dev.

Steps

Please make sure that you can visit GitHub and you can do sudo on your Linux box.

  1. Clone this repo from GitHub:
$ git clone https://github.com/VincentWei/build-minigui-4.0.git
$ cd build-minigui-4.0/
  1. Copy config.sh to myconfig.sh and edit myconfig.sh to match your needs:
$ cp config.sh myconfig.sh
  1. Run fetch-all.sh to fetch all source from GitHub:
$ ./fetch-all.sh
  1. Run build-deps.sh to build and install gvfb, chipmunk, and harfbuzz:
$ ./build-deps.sh
  1. Run build-all.sh to build all:
$ ./build-all.sh
  1. Run mguxdemo:
$ cd /usr/local/bin
$ ./mguxdemo

When there were some updates in the remote repos, you can run update-all.sh to update them. You can run clean-build-all.sh to uninstall, clean, and re-install them.

Note that you might need to run ldconfig to refresh the shared libraries cache when running mguxdemo.

Commands to build dependencies

The following steps are those ones in build-deps.sh. We list them here for your information:

  1. Make and install gvfb:
$ cd gvfb
$ cmake .
$ make; sudo make install
$ cd ..
  1. Make and install chipmunk library (DO NOT use the chipmunk-dev package which is provided by Ubuntu):
$ cd 3rd-party/chipmunk
$ cmake .
$ make; sudo make install
$ cd ../..
  1. Make and install harfbuzz library (DO NOT use the harfbuzz-dev package which is provided by Ubuntu):
$ cd 3rd-party/harfbuzz
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./config-extern.sh
$ make; sudo make install
$ cd ../..

Cross Building

MiniGUI 4.0.x can run on lots of CPUs with different architechtures, such as ARM, MIPS and so on, after cross compiled. There is a directory named "cross-build", in which there are some scripts for cross compile.

As an example, there is a directory name "arm-r16-linux", which means: This directory is for ARM CPU --- r16, and the Operation System is Linux. In this directory, there are two scipts for download packages, and build MiniGUI 4.0.x for ARM version. You can read the README.md in this directory in detail:

Of course you can build your own directory for your developped CPU and OS.

Change Log

Currently, this repo just includes some scripts to build MiniGUI 4.0.x core, components, and demonstration apps.
