Building Gwenview 1.4 from the Subversion repository
The following steps are necessary to get the source code (In this example, we assume you store the source code in "~/src")
cd ~/src # Get the "admin" dir, used by the build system. As of now, Gwenview builds # with the KDE 3.3 admin dir svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/KDE/3.3/kde-common/admin # Get the "graphics" dir of extragear, using -N to avoid getting all subdirs svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/extragear/kde3/graphics -N # Get the "gwenview" subdir cd graphics/ svn up gwenview # Link the "admin" dir here, otherwise next step will fail ln -s ../admin/ # Create the "configure" file make -f Makefile.cvs # Generate the Makefiles, with full debugging information ./configure --enable-debug=full # Compile Gwenview cd gwenview/ make
Note: as of the time of this howto (2007.06.24), Gwenview can be build with the current libkipi release (0.1.5). If you want to build it using the SVN version of libkipi, you can find it in "extragear/kde3/libs/libkipi".
Next time you want to update to the latest version, just do:
cd ~/src # Get the latest source cd graphics/gwenview svn up # Build make
