Compiling AbiWord on Maemo
Building AbiWord on Maemo.
This page is work in progress.
Maemo 4.1 - Diablo
Install the SDK and the dev tools. See http://repository.maemo.org/stable/4.1.2/INSTALL.txt and http://maemo.org/development/sdks/maemo_4-1-2_diablo/
The Nokia binary packages are NOT needed. You can stick to Free Software.
Install the provided dependencies
Make sure you have the following sources in /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras diablo free non-free deb-src http://repository.maemo.org/extras diablo free
This should be enough. In scratchbox do:
apt-get install libfribidi-dev librsvg2-dev libgsf-1-dev
(you need to do it for each targets).
Build or install other dependencies
You need libwmf and wv (the former needed by the later).
Installing libwmf require gsfonts (TODO: fix that, it is big)
The binaries will be available from https://garage.maemo.org/projects/abiword/
Unpack the source tarball OR checkout from SVN. The later is prefered as for the former, packages will be provided.
I build the same source on both plain GNOME and Maemo.
Here is my configure line for Maemo:
../configure --disable-shared --enable-debug --enable-embedded=hildon --disable-maintainer-mode --enable-shave
Explanation: In order: static build, enable debug (don't use for the packages), enable hildon (the flavour of Gtk for Maemo), disable maintainer mode (because the host native build takes care of it) and enable shave for the pretty uncluttered output.
To start AbiWord, make install, and then do after having started scratchbox:
If you get an error about D-Bus ("failed to read machine uuid"), try:
