How to compile Tupi source code (Ubuntu - 10.10 - 12.10)
Note: Just for now, the Tupi project is only available for Unix systems. We hope to port it to many other platforms in the future. Meanwhile, the best way to try it is from any GNU/Linux distro (and FreeBSD or Unix-alike systems).
Note: If you are an Ubuntu user and want to try an script to save time and make things easier, you should check get_tupi.sh.
The compilation process of any software usually requires a set of specific tools previously installed in your system. Those additional components are called "dependencies".
In this case, before you start to compile Tupi, you must ensure to get installed the next list of dependencies in your computer:
For Ubuntu users (version 10.10) with some experience using the console, these are the commands they should run to install Tupi dependencies:
- Open a terminal (from Aplications -> Accesories) and type:
Note: If you are not using Ubuntu, check for the equivalent packages for your Linux distro
2. Get the source and compile
- Download the Tupi source code from our Download section. Then, run these commands:
Note: Only for advanced users, the configure script provides many options useful to set specific installation paths. Try "./configure --help" to get more information about it.
3. Animation time!
Or look for the launcher from Applications -> Graphics -> Tupi
And enjoy Tupí!
