Installing Homebrew & Dependencies
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" brew install git brew update brew tap tomahawk-player/tomahawkqt5 brew install qtkeychain brew install tomahawk-player/tomahawkqt5/qca --with-qt5 --without-qt brew install --HEAD lucenepp --c++11 brew install jreen brew install --HEAD websocketpp brew install vlc brew install --HEAD tomahawk-player/tomahawkqt5/quazip brew install --HEAD tomahawk-player/tomahawkqt5/liblastfm brew install --HEAD extracmakemodules brew install `brew deps tomahawk`
git clone git://github.com/tomahawk-player/tomahawk.git mkdir tomahawk/build && cd tomahawk/build export PATH=/usr/local/opt/qt5/bin:$PATH cmake -DBUILD_WITH_QT4=OFF -DPC_ECHONEST_VERSION=2.3.0 -DBUILD_TOOLS=OFF .. make open tomahawk.app
Note, you must have XCode's Command Line Tools installed to compile Tomahawk.
Compiling on Mavericks
Disable Breakpad by running cmake again: cmake -DWITH_BREAKPAD=OFF ..
VLC won't build on Yosemite
you will need a copy of libVLC that was build on an early version of OS X and put that in /usr/local/Cellar brew link vlc
Some have reported success with building VLC on Yosemite by following these directions.
After updating to a newer Qt version, you need to run the following commands to compile and link the dependencies against the new Qt:
cd /usr/local brew cleanup packages_using_qt=`brew uses --installed qt` echo $packages_using_qt | xargs brew remove echo $packages_using_qt | xargs brew install unset packages_using_qt cd tomahawk rm -rf build
Then start again from creating the build directory.
CMake Failed to Execute
If you get 'Failed to execute: cmake' try again with a standard environment. For example the below.
brew install --env=std tomahawk-player/tomahawk/libechonest
Updating Homebrew Tap
Sometimes a new package gets added to Tomahawk's tap. To update the tap, untap then tap again.
brew untap tomahawk-player/tomahawkqt5 brew tap tomahawk-player/tomahawkqt5
Application Database and Preferences
In the case of a crash when nothing else seems to clear out a problem and the Tomahawk devs say it's ok to remove them, these are the paths to Tomahawk's database, cache and preferences.
