fpGUI information ================= This version of fpGUI is based on a implementation where every widget has a window handle. In other words every widget is actually an embedded window inside a top-level window (aka Form). If you wanted to look at the old design of fpGUI - the one based on a single handle per Form - then create a local branch based on the tag 'single_handle_fpgui', or the slightly newer branch called 'v0.4_fixes'. Release v0.5 and later is the new design (multi-handle implementation). It was a complete rewrite of the code. To install FPC under Debian/Ubuntu ================================== Select the fpc.deb metapackage, which depends on a number of sub-packages containing the compiler, the units and so on. The 'libc' unit provided by FPC is included in the fp-units-i386.deb package, which is however marked as "deprecated" by the Ubuntu package manager and is therefore *not* installed by default using fpc.deb. The following command will set up FPC under Ubuntu in order to be used with fpGUI: sudo apt-get install fpc fp-units-i386 How to compile fpGUI ==================== Please see the INSTALL.txt file for detailed instructions. System requirements under Linux =============================== To be able to compile and link fpGUI based applications you need to install the following library dependencies. The packages will pull in all the other required packages too. $ sudo apt-get install libX11-dev $ sudo apt-get install libXft-dev NOTE: On some Linux systems (eg: Ubuntu 17.04) those package names are now in all lower-case. $ sudo apt-get install libx11-dev $ sudo apt-get install libxft-dev System requirements under *BSD, OpenSolaris =========================================== Pretty much the same as under Linux.
