Thread: Build a binary Deb from a Github clone

  1. #1

    Build a binary Deb from a Github clone

    I've tried checkinstall with no success ( http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/lemonpos/ticket/210 ).
    Project's documentation is obsolete, and doesn't cover packaging actions ( http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...allation_Guide )
    The updated procedure to simply install latest version of the software (without package managing) is:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get --install-recommends install build-essential git cmake
    sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install kdelibs5-dev
    git clone https://github.com/miguelchavez/lemonpos.git
    cd lemonpos/
    git fetch origin persa:persa
    git checkout persa
    git pull origin persa
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
    make
    sudo make install
    I've found a lot of large and complicated manuals about compiling and packaging, but I suppose that there is some easier way to generate a deb from this.
    Am I right?

    Basically, no. checkinstall is the quick and dirty way, but if it doesn't work I think your only option is to follow the packaging guide.
