Showcase tool for Qt widgets styles, designed for testing new themes.
In order to build and install Widget Factory you need Qt 5.1 or better with at least the following modules:
- qtjsbackend (doesn't exist on Qt >= 5.2)
You can either build Qt from git yourself or download binaries.
More information about building Qt 5 from can be found here:
Qt 5 binaries can be downloaded from http://qt-project.org/downloads
Building Widget Factory is a piece of cake.
Assuming you are in the source directory, just create a build directory and run cmake:
mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/hawaii ..
To do a debug build the last command can be:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/hawaii -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ..
To do a release build instead it can be:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/hawaii -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..
If not passed, the
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX parameter defaults to /usr/local.
You have to specify a path that fits your needs, /opt/hawaii is just an example.
Package maintainers would pass
CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE parameter allows the following values:
- Debug: debug build
- Release: release build
- RelWithDebInfo: release build with debugging information
It's really easy, it's just a matter of typing:
from the build directory.
