How to Build on Linux

Building using OpenEmbedded

Using the meta-webos layer for OpenEmbedded is the preferred method of building Open webOS components.

This allows your package to be installed into an Open webOS system, or as part of an Open webOS image.

Building the latest "stable" version

Clone the repository at and follow the instructions in that README to build Open webOS.

To build or rebuild a single Open webOS component, if your build-webos directory is ~/openwebos/build-webos, and you are wanting to rebuild the component called "luna-systemui", do:

$ cd ~/openwebos/build-webos
$ make cleanall-luna-systemui luna-systemui

The resulting IPK package will be in your BUILD-[target-machine] directory, under deploy/ipk/[architecture], such as this example:


You can transfer this to your existing image, and install it by logging into the Open webOS system, and using:

$ ipkg install /path/to/luna-systemui_2.0.0-1.01-r7_qemux86.ipk

Or you can create a completely new Open webOS image with:

$ make webos-image

Building your local clone

After successfully building the latest stable version, you may configure build-webos to build this component from your own local clone.

You can specify what directory to use as the local source inside the file "global-webos.conf" in your home directory, or within the file "webos-local.conf" within the build-webos directory, by adding the following:

S_pn-[component-name] = "/path/to/component/source"

such as in this example:

S_pn-luna-systemui = "/home/user/openwebos/luna-systemui"

Then follow the instructions above to rebuild and install this package.

Building for Open webOS Desktop

It is often desireable, for rapid iteration and testing purposes, to build a component for use within the Open webOS Desktop system.

Building the latest "stable" version

Clone the repository at and follow the instructions in the README file.

Building your local clone

First, follow the directions to build the latest "stable" version.

To build your local clone of a component, such as luna-systemui, instead of the "stable" version installed with the build-webos-desktop script:

  • Open the script with a text editor
  • Locate the function build_component-name (i.e., build_luna-systemui)
  • Change the line "cd $BASE/luna-systemui" to use the folder containing your clone, for example "cd ~/openwebos/luna-systemui"
  • Close the text editor
  • Remove the file /luna-desktop-binaries/component-name/luna-desktop-build*.stamp (/luna-desktop-binaries/luna-systemui/luna-desktop-build*.stamp)
  • Rebuild by running the script again


  • When you re-clone openwebos/build-desktop, you'll have to overwrite your changes and reapply them
  • Components often advance in parallel with each other, so be prepared to keep your cloned repositories updated
  • Fetch and rebase frequently
