|Version 5 (modified by phil, 8 years ago)|
We provide an installer for the Micrsoft Windows platforms here. Note that this installer is not as up-to-date as the darcs repository at darcs.0x539.de and may be some weeks old. Before you install Gobby with the installer, be sure that gtkmm-2.6 is installed on your system. If it isn't, get it from here. The Windows version of Gobby currently seems only to work under windows XP (compare to #19).
Alternatively, you can compile the whole source for your own. I suggest the MingW? compiler in combination with MSYS?. You will need the gtkmm-2.6 devel package from the site mentioned above and a distribution tarball of net6, libobby and gobby (make dist with the stuff you got from the darcs repositories after having run autogen.sh). If you compile with gtksourceview support (say --with-gtksourceview to Gobby's configure) you will also need libgnomeprint? and gtksourceview?. I think I will provide import libraries, runtime libraries and header files of these two libraries here some time, otherwise you will have to compile the two, too. However, runtimes may currently be retrieved through the Gobby installer or the gobby-dist directory on darcs.0x539.de.
Having any problems with the windows installation or compilation, post them into the WikiForum or somewhere, and I will try to help you as good as I can ;)
Tom wrote ebuilds for net6, libobby and gobby that may be retrieved via the contrib/- sub directories in the corresponding repositories. Be sure to install darcs.eclass before you use them to emerge the packages. If you encounter any problems using the ebuilds, write them into the WikiForum or peek tom at tom@….
As soon as Gobby is released and some things within Debian clear up (mainly GNOME related things) it will be uploaded to Debian unstable from which it could be easily installed via apt-get. But Gobby is not included in the upcoming revision of Debian GNU/Linux called Sarge. More notes will follow as soon as Gobby is released, but please be aware that mostly current revisions are regulary uploaded to Debian experimental, so if you like living on the bleeding edge you could follow the instructions in the Developer's Reference (you should be used to apt-pinning to selectively use packages out of experimental).
Mac OS X
Because of Gobby's dependencies it is still a bit tricky to compile it on Mac OS X. I'll try to make binary builds available in the near future. However, please be aware that Gobby does not use Mac OS X's native interface but instead depends on Apple's X11 as the windowing toolkit is uses is not (yet?) ported natively to Mac OS X.
