Here is how to compile 0.9.3 on Ubuntu 8.04

• Oct 11, 2008 - 00:16

For those of you who try to compile 0.9.3 on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy, here are the required steps :

sudo apt-get install cmake
sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev
sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev

Download the source from Sourceforge, uncompress, compile and install :

bunzip2 mscore-0.9.3.tar.bz2
tar cf mscore-0.9.3.tar
cd mscore-0.9.3
sudo make

[go drink a cofee until it's finished]

sudo make install

It looks simple but it took me quite some time and hair pulling until I got it correctly... So I hope this can be helpful to someone.



Thank you for writing this up and sharing. If it's alright with you I added the instructions to the developers handbook. See [[nodetitle:Compile instructions (Ubuntu)]]

There's a minor error. The line:
tar cf mscore-0.9.3.tar
is used to create an archive and would generate an error since the source is missing.

The line should read:
tar xf mscore-0.9.3.tar
This will extract the archive.

You also have to download g++ in order to run CMake :
- sudo apt-get install g++

In part of that, everything working correctly, thanks a lot.
