This means the application is not released yet and still under development! Please take this in mind when looking at the application. Though already now, all kinds of bug reports are very welcomed! == Setting up Development or Testing Environment == The following general steps are mandatory: # setup development enviroment for KDE applications # get the Artikulate source code # configure the build system # compile Artikulate # install Artikulate # set KDEDIRS and run QML_IMPORT_PATH # run Artikulate Some of these steps need further explenations: === Artikulate Development Environment === Usually it is '''not necessary''' to compile kdelibs and Qt by yourself! The current master branch only requires development packges of the following framewoks: * KDE >= 4.9 * Qt >= 4.8 * CMake >= 2.8.9 * QtMobility with component QtMultimedia Those package are usually provided by your distribution. Not that you also must install the development packages (often indicated by a trailing "-dev" in the package name). ==== Example: Development Packages on Debian ==== * kde-sc-dev-latest * cmake * kdelibs5-dev * qtmobility-dev * libqtmultimediakit1 === Get the Source Code === You can fetch the sources from the [https://projects.kde.org/projects/playground/edu/artikulate Artikulate Project Page] by cloning the Git repository. Let's say for the further explenations here that you fetch the source to: "$HOME/artikulate-source" (replace $HOME by the path to your home directory!) === Configure Your Build-System === Next, we need folders for building and for installing Artikulate. Let's say we create folders * $HOME/artikulate-build * $HOME/artikulate-install Then we need to say the build-scripts that those folders exist. Very comfortable this can be done by using the program cmake-gui. Take care to set the following variables: * Source-directory is: $HOME/artkulate-source * Build-directory is: $HOME/artikulate-build * set: CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE = debugfull * set: CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX = $HOME/artikulate-install Then press "configure" to see if all necessary libraries are present. Maybe you must press configure twice to get all red warnings resolved. If nothing red remains, all dependencies are found. To generate the build files, press "Generate". === Setup Execution Enviroment and Run Artikulate === It is necessary that the following variables are set when executing the application. This can either be done in your IDE (like KDevelop or QtCreator) or at the console with the export command, i.e.: # export KDEDIRS=$HOME/artikulate-install:$KDEDIRS # export QML_IMPORT_PATH=/usr/lib/kde4/imports:$HOME/artikulate/share/apps/artikulate/qml/ Finally, you can run your build Artikulate binaries in $HOME/artikulate-install/bin/artikulate.
