6# Installing EFL on FreeBSD #
7
8[The *Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL)*](/about-efl.md) power millions of systems from mobile phones to set-top boxes, desktops, laptops, game systems and more. You'll need EFL if you want to develop apps for Enlightenment and for any of the devices that use Enlightenment for its visual interface.
9
10This tutorial describes several ways to install EFL on your system. You will only need to use one of these. Select your chosen method using the index on the right.
11
12Many distributions offer EFL as an installable package from their default repositories. In this case you only need to use your distribution's software management system to install. However most versions of EFL in default repositories are out of date and will not compile more recent Enlightenment applications. If this is not an issue for you read through the ["From Distribution Repositories"](#From_Distribution_Repositories) section below.
13
14The Enlightenment developers provide a pre-packaged source of EFL. Although not bleeding edge it is up to date and considered stable for production environments. You can download, compile and install it yourself by following the instructions in ["Installing from Packaged Source"](#Installing_from_Packaged_Source).
15
16You can also download the source code for the most recent version from the EFL git repositories. This will provide you with the latest code, which is updated on a nightly basis. To get started, read the section ["Installing from Git"](#Installing_from_Git).
17
18Whichever installation method you use, visit ["Compiling EFL Applications"](#Compiling_EFL_Applications) to discover how to compile your Enlightenment applications.
19
20## From Distribution Repositories ##
21
22FreeBSD contains an instance of the EFL package in its official repositories. To install it run the following command as root:
23
24```bash
25pkg install efl
26```
27
28This will give you a working EFL installation.
29
30The version in FreeBSD's official repositories may lag behind the latest version of EFL and give you problems when trying to compile examples from tutorials in this documentation. If this is the case, install a more recent version of EFL using one of the methods below.
31
32## Installing from Packaged Source ##
33
34There are two versions of EFL available from the Enlightenment website. One is the nightly bleeding edge version which you can [download using git](#Installing_from_Git). The other is packaged and available from the [EFL download page](https://download.enlightenment.org/rel/libs/efl/), which is the focus of this section.
35
36### Step 1: Downloading Stable Version ###
37
38[Download the latest version of EFL](https://download.enlightenment.org/rel/libs/efl/) and check it against its SHA256 hash:
39
40```bash
41wget --no-check-certificate https://download.enlightenment.org/rel/libs/efl/efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz
42wget --no-check-certificate https://download.enlightenment.org/rel/libs/efl/efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz.sha256
43cat efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz.sha256; sha256sum efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz
44```
45
46Note that you'll need to change ``X.XX.X`` to the actual version of EFL e.g. efl-1.20.6.tar.xz
47
48### Step 2: Unpacking ###
49
50Once you've downloaded the archive file containing EFL to your hard drive unpack it with:
51
52```bash
53tar xvf efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz
54```
55
56This will produce a folder named *efl-X.XX.X*.
57
58### Step 3: Installing Dependencies ###
59
60To compile from source you'll need *gcc* and few more GNU tools:
61
62```bash
63su
64pkg install gcc automake gmake pkgconf
65```
66
67Next install the software packages required by EFL:
68
69```bash
70su
71pkg install check pkgconfig doxygen openssl jpeg gstreamer1 luajit fribidi tiff poppler libspectre libraw librsvg2 pulseaudio libXcursor libXcomposite libXinerama libXrandr libXScrnSaver bullet gstreamer1-plugins
72```
73
74### Step 4: Building and Installing ###
75
76Once you have installed all the required packages ``cd`` into the *efl-X.XX.X* folder and run
77
78```bash
79./configure
80gmake
81su
82gmake install
83```
84
85This will configure the files needed for compiling, compile the software itself and then install it.
86
87### Step 5: Carrying out Post Installation Tasks ###
88
89As you are not installing to */usr* but to */usr/local* you need to ensure that some files are visible to *dbus*:
90
91```bash
92su
93ln -s /usr/local/share/dbus-1/services/org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service
94```
95
96You may also need to refresh your library path to make sure your apps can find the EFL libraries:
97
98```bash
99ldconfig
100```
101
102## Installing from Git ##
103
104You can also install the bleeding edge version of EFL by cloning it from the git repository.
105
106### Step 1: Installing git and Cloning ###
107
108By default, *git* is not installed in FreeBSD, so the first step is to install it:
109
110```bash
111pkg install git
112```
113
114Next clone EFL's source code:
115
116```bash
117git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/core/efl.git
118```
119
120This will create a a directory named *efl/*.
121
122### Step 2: Installing Dependencies ###
123
124You now need to install some tools to build the configuration file:
125
126```bash
127pkg install gcc automake gmake pkgconf
128```
129
130Make sure to install the dependencies specific to EFL also:
131
132```bash
133pkg install check doxygen openssl jpeg gstreamer1 luajit fribidi tiff poppler libspectre libraw librsvg2 pulseaudio libXcursor libXcomposite libXinerama libXrandr libXScrnSaver bullet gstreamer1-plugins
134```
135
136### Step 3: Configuring the Software ###
137
138You can now ``cd`` into the *efl\* directory and run the *autoreconf* script to create and configure the software ready for compilation:
139
140```bash
141./autogen.sh
142```
143
144Once configured, compile the software with:
145
146```bash
147gmake
148su
149gmake install
150```
151
152### Step 4: Carrying out Post Installation Tasks ###
153
154As you are not installing to */usr* but to */usr/local*, you need to ensure that some files are visible to *dbus*:
155
156```bash
157su
158ln -s /usr/local/share/dbus-1/services/org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service
159```
160
161You may also need to refresh your library path to make sure your apps can find the EFL libraries:
162
163```bash
164su
165ldconfig
166```
167
168## Compiling EFL Applications ###
169
170With EFL installed, you can start compiling the applications you write using Enlightenment technologies:
171
172```bash
173gcc -o your_app your_app.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs eina efl elementary`
174```
175
176Change ``your_app`` to the name of the app you want to build and ``your_app.c`` to the file containing the source code for your application.
177
178If the compilation is successful this will create an executable application named *your_app* in the directory. You can run this app in the same way as any other program.
179
180## Troubleshooting ##
181
182If you get errors when you compile the examples in this guide, you may be using an out of date version of EFL. Update your libraries by installing from [EFL's git repository](#Installing_from_Git).
183
184If you are having problems compiling and installing EFL you can find help on any of [our IRC channels](https://www.enlightenment.org/contact) or [post a ticket to our Phabricator](https://phab.enlightenment.org).
