Building PS Move API in Ubuntu Linux
These instructions have been tested and verified for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
The commands are entered into the Terminal (use Ctrl+Alt+T to open one).
We assume that you are going to clone the repository into ~/src/psmoveapi/
1. Upgrade your system to the latest packages
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
2. Install Git
sudo apt-get install git
3. Clone the PS Move API Repository
mkdir -p ~/src/
cd ~/src/
git clone git://
cd psmoveapi
git submodule init
git submodule update
4. Install the build-dependencies
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake libudev-dev libbluetooth-dev \
libv4l-dev libopencv-dev
5.a Build the API (as Debian package) and install it
cd ~/src/psmoveapi/
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
sudo dpkg -i ../*psmoveapi*.deb
5.b Build the API (standalone - if you want to make changes)
cd ~/src/psmoveapi/
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j4
