Configuring Ubuntu 6 For Harmony Development

These instructions presume a fresh install of Ubuntu 6 (although should work with other version) and that you have the ability to "sudo" or be root. These instructions work on both x86 and x86_64.

1) Install subversion, gcc, g++ and make:

$ sudo apt-get install subversion
$ sudo apt-get install gcc
$ sudo apt-get install g++
$ sudo apt-get install make

2) Install java : (1.5.0_9 from sun) : get from http://java.sun.com/ and install as you see fit. When done, the following should do the right thing in a shell :

$ java

3) Install ant (1.6.x) : get from http://ant.apache.org/ and install as you see fit. When done, the following should do the right thing in a shell :

$ ant

4) Get junit and drop the junit-X.jar into ant/lib (where X is the version of JUnit)

5) Install AWT/Swing deps

$ sudo apt-get install liblcms1-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libpng12-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libjpeg62-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libx11-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libxft-dev
$ sudo apt-get install binutils-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libxtst-dev

Now you can continue with the build instructions as found at http://harmony.apache.org/quickhelp_contributors.html
