To build the Debian/Ubuntu package following packages need to be installed
Checkout the code via git or download a source package
Switch over to the installs/debian/ubuntu directory within your exe directory and start the make.py script
When the make script has finished the deb package can be found inside of the parent directory of your eXe directory
apt-get install git-core fakeroot dh-make python-setuptools git clone git://github.com/skython/eXe.git cd eXe/installs/debian/ubuntu ./make.py
Checkout the code via git or download a source package.
Download the current Firefox dmg image and place the app into exe/webui/firefox/ (create folder if doesn't exist).
Make sure that PIL(Python Image Library) is installed, you can install it by running:
If you have an x86(Intel) based mac try running:
ARCHFLAGS="-arch i386 -arch x86_64" easy_install PIL
Change the directory to installs/osx and run:
The instructions are for python 2.7 but should also work with python 2.4 - 2.6
For checking out the code there is a nice graphical version of Git called: TortoiseGit
Following applications and libraries are needed to make a executable version of eXe for Windows.
Make sure to download the libraries for the correct Python version and your platform e.g. ending with py2.7
Download and install all prerequisites.
Firefox can be either directly installed in exe\webui\Mozilla Firefox or copied there after the installation.
A python make script can be found in installs\windows\make.py.
If NSIS isn't installed in C:\Program Files\NSIS or the installation path is not in the PATH environment variable, the path has to be set manually in the make.py script to fit the NSIS installation.
If there are errors in the build process try to execute make.py with the windows command-line directly to prevent the command-line window from closing to be able to see warnings and errors
