This is a very short description of FBReader build procedure.
1. Compiler.
All version of FBReader are configured for building on linux desktop
computer. You need gcc compiler for building desktop version or cross
gcc compiler for building package for another platform.
2. Libraries.
FBReader requires
** expat -- library for XML parsing. AFAIK, all popular destributions
includes package with name like 'expat-dev' or 'libexpat-dev'.
If you cannot find expat in your distribution, please visit
** libz and libbz2 -- libraries for zip and bzip2 (de)compression
** UI library -- this depends on your target platform. For desktop,
Qt library, version 3.* or 4.*
GTK+ library, version >= 2.4
should be installed
** liblinebreak ( -- library for line breaking in a Unicode sequence
** libfribidi -- for bidirectional text support
** lincurl, version >= 7.17 -- for network libraries integration
** libsqlite3
** for win32 version, we use also libpng, libungif, libjpeg and libtiff
3. How to configure.
Before building FBReader, you should check (and maybe edit) 2 files:
** makefiles/
In this file you should define 3 variables:
TARGET_ARCH -- target platform for building FBReader
UI_TYPE -- UI library
TARGET_STATUS -- "release", "debug" or "profile". "release" is
reasonable choice for almost all users.
Possible pairs for TARGET_ARCH + UI_TYPE are:
TARGET_ARCH = desktop UI_TYPE = gtk
TARGET_ARCH = desktop UI_TYPE = qt
TARGET_ARCH = desktop UI_TYPE = qt4
TARGET_ARCH = pepperpad3 UI_TYPE = gtk
TARGET_ARCH = zaurus UI_TYPE = qtopia-240x320
TARGET_ARCH = zaurus UI_TYPE = qtopia-640x480
TARGET_ARCH = openzaurus UI_TYPE = opie
TARGET_ARCH = openzaurus UI_TYPE = gpe
TARGET_ARCH = pdaxrom UI_TYPE = gtk
TARGET_ARCH = pdaxrom UI_TYPE = qt
TARGET_ARCH = opensimpad-0.9.0 UI_TYPE = opie
TARGET_ARCH = maemo UI_TYPE = maemo2
TARGET_ARCH = maemo UI_TYPE = maemo4
TARGET_ARCH = pma400 UI_TYPE = qtopia
TARGET_ARCH = moto UI_TYPE = ezx
TARGET_ARCH = win32 UI_TYPE = win32
TARGET_ARCH = macosx UI_TYPE = cocoa
** makefiles/arch/$(TARGET_ARCH).mk
This file defines compiler name and location, headers and libraries
locations, compilation flags, installation path (for desktop), etc.
4. How to build.
Just type 'make' in FBReader root directory. (FBReader root directory ==
directory containing this file.)
5. How to install.
If you want to install FBReader on your desktop computer, just run 'make install'
as root in FBReader root directory.
If you want to create package for another platform, run 'make packages' in
FBReader root directory.
