Re: How to compile Uplinks clutter orbiter demo
« Reply #45 on: May 14, 2010, 11:17:12 am »
To compile the Uplink's demo just download it, uncompress the archive somewhere using;

tar zxf clutter-orbiter-sample.tar.gz<return>

Now you need the clutter lib;

apt-get install libclutter-1.0-dev<return>


Im trying to learn clutter at present, ive been throught the tutorials and now I wanted to build the example, i have the example downloaded and can see the cpp code etc, however when i try to do the install libclutter-1.0-dev it says it cannot find the package?? am i doing someting wrong?

You're doing it right, except that the package libclutter-1.0-dev was first introduced in Ubuntu Karmic. You'll have to either run Ubuntu 9.10 or 10.04, or backport the package.

I'm not sure what differences there are between the libclutter version in 0810 and the 910/1004 version...give it a try

There is a toolkit for Clutter called mx, which is being used for Moblin/MeeGo currently:

A description of it is here:
http://blogs.gnome.org/thos/2009/11/18/a-new-clutter-widget-toolkit/

a git repository of the toolkit is here:

Meanwhile, over on the qt side of things
http://labs.trolltech.com/blogs/category/labs/graphics/kinetic/declarative_ui/

Qt is a very compelling option. We'll just have to enable STL compatibility to work with our existing C++ code.

Quick is definitely something to look into, as the entire UI can be defined in Javascript, and style like languages.

an example walkthrough of some Qt Quick stuff:
