-====== Installing the latest Rosegarden source from subversion ​======+====== Installing the latest Rosegarden source from Subversion ​======
  
-NOTE: This page is bit outdated.  ​There are other pages around the wiki that are a bit newer that you might want to check.  ​The page about [[dev:​Eclipse|setting up Eclipse]] begins with a more current approach ​to getting ​the latest source and building it.+These instructions show how to install ​development version of Rosegarden to use along with the version installed through your distro.  ​Many of these operations can be performed using graphical utilities, but it is much harder to describe point here click that across many different package managers and desktop environments,​ so these instructions assume ​you have some familiarity with the Linux command line.  ​You will want to go into a terminal using xterm, Konsole, GNOME Terminal or the like to enter these commands.
  
-These instructions show how to install a development version of Rosegarden to a freshly installed Linux distribution.+====== ​.deb-based Distros (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint and Derivatives) ======
  
-===== Basic Steps =====+These instructions were tested with Ubuntu 12.04, but the same general process should work on all .deb-based distros, with some minor variations.
  
-Here's a quick overview of the process. ​ This will likely continue to be the process for the forseeable future. ​ The details might change, but the overall process will stay very close to this. 
  
-  - Install ​rosegarden. ​  +===== Install ​Distro ​Rosegarden ​=====
-    * This will install your distro'​s version of Rosegarden.  It will be out of date, but it will bring along with it all the run-time dependencies that Rosegarden needs. +
-  - Install subversion. ​  +
-    * The Rosegarden project uses subversion for version control. ​ To get the latest source, you'll need to have subversion installed. +
-  - Get the source from sourceforge using subversion. +
-    * See the [[dev:​subversion|subversion quick start]]. +
-  - Install the build dependencies for Rosegarden. +
-    * This will make sure you have all the development tools and libraries needed to build Rosegarden. +
-  - ./​bootstrap.sh +
-  - ./​configure +
-  - make +
-  - ./​rosegarden +
-    * This will run rosegarden if all has gone well.+
  
-===== Kubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) =====+First, install your distro'​s version of Rosegarden. ​ It will be out of date, but this is a quick and easy way to pull in all the run-time dependencies that Rosegarden needs.
  
-First, ​install subversion.+<​code>​ 
 +  sudo apt-get ​install ​rosegarden ​subversion 
 +</​code>​
  
-  $ sudo apt-get install subversion+===== Enable Source Repositories =====
  
-Download ​the latest ​source ​using subversion.+Have a look to make sure you have source packages enabled in ''/​etc/​sources.list'' ​ Lines that start with ''#''​ are comments. ​ Lines that start with ''​deb''​ are for packages, and lines that start with ''​deb-src''​ are for source packages. ​ If you see lines starting with ''#​deb-src''​ you should remove ​the ''#''​ to enable ​source ​repositories You should be left with a number of entries that resemble this short sample:
  
-  $ svn checkout svn+ssh://userid@svn.code.sf.net/p/rosegarden/code/trunk/rosegarden rosegarden-svn+<​code>​ 
 +  deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntuprecise multiverse 
 +  deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise multiverse 
 +</​code>​
  
-Be sure to replace "​userid"​ with your sourceforge user ID ​See ​the [[dev:subversion|subversion quick start]] for more download options.+If you changed ''​sources.list''​ then you'll need to do an update to pull in all the new information:
  
-Install dependencies ​+<​code>​ 
 +  sudo apt-get update 
 +</​code>​
  
-  $ sudo apt-get install autoconf g++ libqt4-dev ladspa-sdk liblircclient-dev libjack0.100.0-dev jackd libasound2-dev xutils-dev ​+===== Install Build Dependencies =====
  
-Note: while building on Karmic Koala the following ​dependencies ​were missing:+Having done that, the next step is to use ''​apt-get buid-dep''​ to install all the build dependencies.  These rarely change, and the build dependencies for any version of Rosegarden within the last couple of years should be good enough to get the current development source up and running.
  
-  $ sudo apt-get ​install dssi-dev liblo0-dev liblrdf0-dev libfftw3-dev libsndfile1-dev libsamplerate0-dev+<​code>​ 
 +  ​sudo apt-get ​build-dep rosegarden 
 +</​code>​
  
-After installing the dependencies,​ generate ​(againthe configure script, run it and compile the source+===== Create Build Directory ​(Folder=====
  
-  $ sh ./bootstrap.sh +Now you need to decide where you want to build Rosegarden ​Michael always creates a ''​~/SVN''​ directory for this purpose, but you can put it anywhere you have write and execute permissions,​ and if you intend to use [[dev:​eclipse|Eclipse]] there may be special naming considerations.  ​I assume you have no better ideas but to follow my lead, so:
-  $ ./​configure +
-  $ make+
  
-Before running Rosegarden, install couple of necessary packages+<​code>​ 
 +  mkdir ~/SVN 
 +</​code>​
  
-  $ sudo apt-get install flac qjackctl sox 
  
-Install LilyPond either with+===== Get the Source =====
  
-  $ sudo apt-get install lilypond+With that done you will want to change to your build directory. ​ I assume ~/SVN; please adjust to suit your local situation, and check out the source:
  
-or, if you do **not** want to install TeX (extra ​~150 Mb) which is not necessary, download stable (2.12.*) LilyPond installing binary. Find out what is the latest stable LilyPond version with command+<​code>​ 
 +  cd ~/SVN 
 +</​code>​
  
-  $ wget http://​download.linuxaudio.org/​lilypond/​binaries/​linux-x86/​ -O -+If you have a SourceForge account and think you might want to contribute patches, check out the source using your SourceForge ID:
  
-Download then the latest version and install it+<​code>​ 
 +  svn checkout --username=[YOUR USERID] https://​svn.code.sf.net/​p/​rosegarden/​code/​trunk/​rosegarden rosegarden-svn 
 +</​code>​
  
-  $ wget http://​download.linuxaudio.org/​lilypond/​binaries/​linux-x86/​lilypond-2.12.2-1.linux-x86.sh +Otherwise, just check out a read-only copy:
-  $ sudo sh ./​lilypond-2.12.2-1.linux-x86.sh+
  
-You probably want software synthesis. ​ One option is timidity:+<​code>​ 
 +  svn checkout svn://​svn.code.sf.net/​p/​rosegarden/​code/​trunk/​rosegarden rosegarden-svn 
 +</​code>​
  
-  $ sudo apt-get install timidity freepats+===== Run CMake =====
  
-Now we are ready to run Rosegarden!+Once you've got the source ​to ''​rosegarden-svn''​ under the directory of your choice, move into it, and create a build directory:
  
-Start Rosegarden...+<​code>​ 
 +  cd rosegarden-svn 
 +  mkdir build 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +Now you need to run CMake: 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +  cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=[PREFIX] [-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug] 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +**-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX** sets the installation prefix, such as /usr 
 +If you set the **-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug** then you will compile a debug build instead of the default release build. 
 + 
 +Finally, you are ready to compile: 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +  make 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +Since you have a system version of Rosegarden ​installed, there is probably no need to install the one you just compiled. ​ Run it out of the directory where you just compiled it.  All the install target does is set up system icons and MIME types and so forth, and these change very infrequently. 
 +===== Build and Run ===== 
 + 
 +Now that you've gotten the source bootstrapped and configured, the next step is to build and run. 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +  make && ./​rosegarden 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +If all went well, your computer bogged down pretty hard for 10-15 minutes, and then your shiny new development version of Rosegarden started up.  You can help us test bug fixes and new features ahead of releases, and we are happy to have the help!  (In the future, you can run with ''​./​rosegarden''​ or you can modify an icon on your desktop to run ''​~/​SVN/​rosegarden-svn/​rosegarden''​ instead of the usual ''/​usr/​bin/​rosegarden''​.) 
 + 
 +If something went wrong, don't hesitate to send an email to [[mailto:​michael.mcintyre@rosegardenmusic.com|Michael]] and ask for help.  He will be glad to help you along, and will usually reply within three days. 
 + 
 +Good luck! 
 + 
 +===== Update ===== 
 + 
 +You will need to keep your development source refreshed, and compile it from time to time.  If a developer fixes a bug or adds a feature, you will need to update in order to obtain the newest code: 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +  svn update 
 +  make && ./​rosegarden 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +Occasionally an update may break things. ​ Let's just cross that bridge when we come to it. 
 + 
 + 
 +====== Other Distros ====== 
 + 
 +Nothing here yet.  I've been using Ubuntu since 2005 or so, and I'm very satisfied with it.  Other people can write the instructions for other distros. ​ Sorry. 
 + 
 +(Note, due to high amounts of spamming, it is necessary to ask Michael for a wiki account He will be happy to get one set up for you in a day or two.)
  
-  $ ./​rosegarden 
  
-If you would like to have Rosegarden translated into your language, see [[../../Add or update translation|how to add or update translation]].
