Building Manually:

Dependencies:

In order for CMake to properly inject the current version into the headers and man files it has to be inside the git repository.

Build

  • cmake
  • pkg-config

Runtime

  • PulseAudio
  • Ncurses

Building and Installing

mkdir build && cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -DWITH_UNICODE=1
make
sudo make install

Build Options

Unicode Support

To compile PAmix with ncurses and without unicode support pass -DWITH_UNICODE=0 as an argument to cmake. This will use ncurses instead of ncursesw.

ncursesw header location

You can pass in the include location of your ncursesw header file as an argument, if you are having problems with the default setup. So if your ncursesw header file is at /usr/include/ncw/ncurses.h you would pass -DNCURSESW_H_INCLUDE="ncw/ncurses.h"

Configuration

Configure pamix and set keybindings using pamix.conf (see Configuration for detailed instructions)
