#summary Instructions for building the development version of Hedgewars on Linux (debian focus)
#labels Phase-Implementation,Phase-Deploy,Phase-Support

= Introduction =

This page contains Copy and Paste instructions for a Hedgewars development build.
They should work on Debian and the like (Ubuntu, Mint).
Required Packages for other distros should have similar names.

Please remember to copy the *entire* apt-get lines!

Also, see http://hedgewars.org/download.html if you are just looking to play latest stable - there's a good chance it exists for your distro.

= Prerequisites =

{{{
sudo apt-get install mercurial cmake g++ qt4-qmake libqt4-dev libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-net1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev liblua5.1-dev fpc libphysfs-dev fonts-dejavu-core ttf-wqy-zenhei
}}}
If you want PNG screenshots, add:
{{{
sudo apt-get install libpng12-dev
}}}
If you want video recording, add:
{{{
sudo apt-get install libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev freeglut3-dev
}}}
If you want to try building the server as well (requires at least libghc base 4.3 now) try these too:
{{{
sudo apt-get install ghc libghc-binary-dev libghc-bytestring-show-dev libghc-dataenc-dev libghc-deepseq-dev libghc-hslogger-dev libghc-mtl-dev libghc-network-dev libghc-parsec3-dev libghc-utf8-string-dev libghc-vector-dev libghc-random-dev libghc-zlib-dev libghc-sha-dev libghc-entropy-dev
}}}

= Fetching the source code =

Below you find instructions for downloading the Hedgewars source code from the development repository.

If you have already downloaded and unpacked the source code version of your choice (e.g. the source tarball from the  [http://hedgewars.org/download.html download page]), just {{{cd}}} to your copy of the Hedgewars source in a terminal and go straight to the building section further below.
----

{{{
mkdir -p ~/games ~/hg/hedgewars/
cd ~/hg/hedgewars
hg clone -v https://hedgewars.googlecode.com/hg/ trunk
}}}

The initial clone of the repository will take a while, is about 628MiB or so, due to all the multimedia revisions.
After that switch to the trunk folder:

{{{
cd trunk
}}}

If you want to build the latest release version (so that you can play with other people online) use this command:
{{{
hg update 0.9.20
}}}
Note. Do *NOT* run the command above if you want to play the latest development code (currently 0.9.21-dev).


= Building process =

Now let's configure and build!

If you want to install Hedgewars *just for your user account* run
{{{
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="DEBUG" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="$HOME/games" -DDATA_INSTALL_DIR="$HOME/games" -DNOSERVER=1
make install
}}}
If you want to install Hedgewars *system-wide* (not recommended for development builds) then run

{{{
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="RELEASE" -DNOSERVER=1
sudo make install
}}}

IMPORTANT: If you decided against png-screenshots or video-recording support, please append `-DNOPNG=1` and/or `-DNOVIDEOREC=1` to the cmake command line respectively!

if you want to build the server as well, change `-DNOSERVER=1` to `-DNOSERVER=0`


then wait for the build to complete, then run ...

{{{
~/games/bin/hedgewars
}}}
or just {{{hedgewars}}} if you did a system-wide install.

You can also create a launcher for it on your desktop or on applications menu if you wish, using the ~/games/bin/hedgewars path

== Build latest development code repository updates ===

If you have built from your repository clone before and now you want to download more recent updates and rebuild Hedgewars with them, then run

{{{
cd ~/hg/hedgewars/trunk
hg pull -u
cmake .
make install
}}}
