SeedKit Install Instructions
Info:Its assumed you have some basic knowledge about using a Command Line Interface and pulling from git since there are no Packages available as of the time being.
SeedKit depends on gtk3 >= 3.0, webkit-gtk >= 1.4 and seed >= 3.0. The two latter should be compiled against gtk+ 3.0. Yeah I am looking at you Ubuntu. For those poor souls, the Gnome 3 PPA provide quite recent versions.
If your distro of choice provide those, just install the development packages (-devel or -dev) matching them. Otherwise, you'll have to build them directly or using jhbuild.
For fedora 15+: sudo yum install seed-devel gtk3-devel webkitgtk3-devel
Getting the bits
SeedKit provides two separated modules, that you need to checkout until next release
- libseedkit provides an embeddable widget
- git clone git://gitorious.org/seedkit/seedkit.git
- seedkit-viewer, a simple 'hybrid' application running environnement. It obviously depends on libseedkit
- git clone git://gitorious.org/~scaroo/seedkit/seedkit-viewer.git
After getting those, just cd in each directory and issue the following commands: ./autogen.sh make sudo make install
Hopefully, that should be it !
Update your SharedObjects Path
You MIGHT have to edit your ld.so.conf, to do so run:
sudo gedit /etc/ld.so.conf
put include /usr/local/lib as the last line in the file (if you don't have a ld.so.conf file just create an empty file in /etc and name it ld.so.conf). Save the file and run ldconfig from the Terminal, now you should be setup for running SeedKit Apps.
