e.g., for Ubuntu you may use
> sudo apt-get install git-core cmake libqt4-dev libpng12-dev libfreetype6-dev libjpeg62-dev libfontconfig1-dev zlib1g-dev

Packaging:

Debian based packages included to project:
packages/ubuntu -- debian package for Ubuntu, with Qt frontend
packages/openinkpot -- debian package for OpenInkpot, with XCB frontend

To build debian package, copy one of package descriptions from packages directory:
cp -r packages/ubuntu/debian debian
Then, package can be built using `debuild` command.

Build instructions:

==============================
*** QT Build under Windows ***
==============================

    Using QT SDK  

Environment setup: 
- Download and install QT SDK, git, cmake, msys
- Copy contents of git and cmake dirs to QT/mingw/
- Copy make.exe from msys/bin to QT/mingw/bin

Run Qt SDK / Qt Command Prompt. Execute:
> sh
> git clone git://crengine.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/crengine/crengine
> mv crengine cr3
> cd cr3
> mkdir qtbuild
> cd qtbuild
> cmake -D GUI=QT -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -G "MSYS Makefiles" -D USE_QT_ZLIB=1 -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=dist ..
> make
> make install

cmake -D GUI=QT -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -G "Visual Studio 9 2008" -D USE_QT_ZLIB=1 -D DOC_DATA_COMPRESSION_LEVEL=3 -D DOC_BUFFER_SIZE=0x1500000 -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=dist ..


It will put built cr3.exe and all necessary distribution files to directory qtbuild/dist.
You need also add following DLLs to this directory in order to get cr3.exe working:
- mingwm10.dll
- QtCore4.dll
- QtGui4.dll
- libz.dll

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
