Note, the master branch is now libCVD-2.0 which is in beta and requires C++14.
Compiling and installing
libCVD currently has both an autoconf and cmake based build system. The autoconf one works on any unix-like system, and is well testes. The CMake one should work on any system but is a little newer so may be buggy in untested configurations.
To install on a UNIX system:
./configure && make && sudo make install
To verify that a few things work, you can optionally run
To build on UNIX with CMake:
mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .. make
To build on Windows, use CMake:
mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<directory> .. cmake --build . --target INSTALL --config Release
There are no mandatory dependencies. For a reasonably complete installation you probably want:
- TooN (header only, install from source)
- libjpeg, libtiff, libpng, ffmpeg, X11, OpenGL. You might also want:
On Ubuntu 16.04, run:
sudo apt-get install libjpeg-dev libpng-dev libtiff-dev libx11-dev libavformat-dev libavdevice-dev libavcodec-dev libavutil-dev libswresample-dev libglu-dev libdc1394-22
You need a C++14 compiler.
All libraries are optional but you will be missing features if the libraries aren't present. The configure script will tell you what's present and what's not.
Ubuntu 16.04 / gcc 5
The default C++ compiler on Ubuntu 16.04 will not compile libCVD because of a bug in the standards compliance of the compiler.. If you want to use libcvd, you will need to install a newer compiler. The easiest eay is to add the toolchain test PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install g++-7
Now you can build libcvd with either:
CXX=g++-7 ./configure make
mkdir build cd build CXX=g++-7 cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .. make
