Installation on MacOS XΒΆ

Preface: This information is kindly provided by Andrey Shkarin and Roman Shkarin.

  1. Install the MacPorts from http://macports.org

    Note

    If you previously installed MacPorts, and it can not be started after latest installation. Error: port dlopen (... You must download the tar.gz file and install it using a terminal:

    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    
  2. Install the necessary packages through macports:

    sudo port install glib2
    sudo port install gtk2
    sudo port install json-glib
    
  3. Install CMake from http://cmake.org

  4. Make ufo-core

    1. Got to the directory ufo-core and run:

      export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
      cmake .
      
    2. Run:

      make
      sudo make install
      
    3. Installation is complete, perhaps the last lines are as follows:

      -- Installing: /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ufo.pc
      CMake Error at src/bindings/cmake_install.cmake:33 (FILE):
      file INSTALL cannot find
        "/Users/Andrey/Desktop/ufo-distr/ufo-core/src/bindings/../src/Ufo-0.1.gir".
      Call Stack (most recent call first):
        src/cmake_install.cmake:60 (INCLUDE)
        cmake_install.cmake:32 (INCLUDE)
      make: *** [install] Error 1
      
  5. Make filters

    1. Go to ufo-filters directory. Now, since libufo was installed in lib64, we must update the paths to look for shared libraries:

    export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/lib64
    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
    
    1. Run:

      cmake .
      make
      sudo make install
      
  6. Build the test project and verify that everything works.
