    projectM install from source

    I tried installing projectM from the repo but it is only integrated in Amarok. I want to install the pulseaudio version of projectM 1.2.0, so that any audio that is playing through my computer, I can display projectM. The main reason for me doing this is because it would be awesome if I could have projectM as my visualizer when using Songbird 1.0.

    Link to package
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=269729

    Link to a howto
    http://linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/Install_ProjectM

    I installed the dependencies listed. When I extract the package and try to ./configure, I get "No such file or directory." I tried looking for the config script but I couldn't find it.

    Can someone check out the package and see if they can make it? If you can, can you help me make this?

    Thanks,
    Hans

    Thanks for the link. I just got it installed again after not using it for awhile. They fixed the disappearing mouse bug too! Now to enjoy some visualizations from Songbird via projectm-pulseaudio.

    If anyone wants to get the current SVN 1199 with Interpid Ibex working, the steps are listed on page 19 of the thread.

    Steps I used were:

    sudo aptitude install libglew1.5 libglew1.5-dev ftgl-dev libpulse-dev subversion cmake libvisual-0.4-dev libsdl-dev libqt4-dev build-essential
    Code:
    cd ~
    mkdir projectm
    cd projectm
    svn co https://projectm.svn.sf.net/svnroot/projectm/trunk projectM-Trunk
    Code:
    cd projectM-Trunk/src
    Code:
    ccmake .
    Now cmake will load. Press "c" to configure projectM. Highlight the CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE field, press enter and type "Release" there. Press enter again. Then highlight the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX field and change /usr/local to /usr/. Then press "c" again to configure it with those parameters.
    Had some warnings that looked like


    I went on anyway.

    First make failed but lamelos' fix worked fine.

    The problem seems to be that FTGL.h is in lowercase (on my pc it was anyway - Intrepid 8.10) and thus it can't be found by the 'make'-command.

    This is how i fixed it:

    Before you do 'make'
    Code:
    cd libprojectM
    gedit Renderer.hpp
    then edit lines 28-30 from
    this:
    Code:
    #include <FTGL/FTGL.h>
    #include <FTGL/FTGLPixmapFont.h>
    #include <FTGL/FTGLExtrdFont.h>
    to this:
    Code:
    #include <FTGL/ftgl.h>
    /**#include <FTGL/FTGLPixmapFont.h> */
    /**#include <FTGL/FTGLExtrdFont.h> */
    after this, exit gedit
    and
    Code:
    cd ..
    make
    now the make succeeds, and you can proceed with
    Code:
    sudo make install
    Hope it works for you as well.


    projectM-pulseaudio should be in Menu -> Sound and Video
    or cli
    Code:
    projectM-pulseaudio
