These are the libraries used by Hawaii Shell and other projects related to the Hawaii desktop environment.


This library includes

  • A Qt-style wrapper for GSettings that provides a nice settings API based on schemas with change notifications.

Qt >= 5.4.0 with at least the following modules is required:

The following modules and their dependencies are required:


Building this module 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:


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.

The CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE parameter allows the following values:

  • Debug: debug build
  • Release: release build
  • RelWithDebInfo: release build with debugging information

System-wide installation

Those who want to perform a system-wide installation, such as package maintainers, should pass different arguments to cmake:

mkdir build
cd build

Feel free to choose whatever CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE value you desire.


It's really easy, it's just a matter of typing:

make install

from the build directory.
