~~Title: Installing EFL on OpenBSD~~
~~NOCACHE~~

# Installing EFL on OpenBSD #

[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. 

This 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.

The 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).

You 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).

Finally, there's an installer available for OpenBSD + Enlightenment in the last section ["Enlightenment for OpenBSD Installer"](#Enlightenment_for_OpenBSD_Installer).

Whichever installation method you use, visit ["Compiling EFL Applications"](#Compiling_EFL_Applications) to discover how to compile your Enlightenment applications.

## Installing from Packaged Source ##

There 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. 

### Step 1: Downloading Stable Version ###

[Download the latest version of EFL](https://download.enlightenment.org/rel/libs/efl/) and check it against its SHA256 hash:

```bash
wget --no-check-certificate https://download.enlightenment.org/rel/libs/efl/efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz
wget --no-check-certificate https://download.enlightenment.org/rel/libs/efl/efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz.sha256
cat efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz.sha256; sha256sum efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz
```

Note that you'll need to change ``X.XX.X`` to the actual version of EFL e.g. efl-1.20.6.tar.xz

### Step 2: Unpacking ###

Once you've downloaded the archive file containing EFL to your hard drive unpack it with:

```bash
tar xvf efl-X.XX.X.tar.xz
```

This will produce a folder named *efl-X.XX.X*.

### Step 3: Installing Dependencies ###

```bash
su
pkg_add bullet check fribidi gettext-tools giflib git gstreamer1 gstreamer1-plugins-base gstreamer1-plugins-good gstreamer1-plugins-bad gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-plugins-libav poppler libraw librsvg libspectre libtool libXp libwebp luajit png pulseaudio scim tiff xprintproto meson ninja
```

### Step 4: Building and Installing ###

Set up these environment variables before building.

```bash
ulimit -n 4096;
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig"
export CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include -I/usr/X11R6/include"
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib/pulseaudio"
export CC="clang"
export CXX="clang++"
```

Once you have installed all the required packages and setup the build environment ``cd`` into the *efl-X.XX.X* folder and run:

```bash
meson build -Dsystemd=false -Deeze=false
ninja -C build
su
ninja -C build install
```

This will configure the files needed for compiling, compile the software itself and then install it.

### Step 5: Carrying out Post Installation Tasks ###

Due to differing library `soname` versioning you also need to create necessary symbolic links ensuring full compatibility and working EFL on OpenBSD. These are subsequent to change, the important factor is that a valid symbolic link points to the destination as shown below:

```bash
su
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libcurl.so.26.8 /usr/local/libcurl.so.4
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libpulse.so.7.1 /usr/local/lib/libpulse.so.0
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libsndfile.so.7.0 /usr/local/lib/libsndfile.so.1
```

## Installing from Git ##

You can also install the bleeding edge version of EFL by cloning it from the git repository.

### Step 1: Installing git and Cloning ###

By default, *git* is not installed on OpenBSD, so the first step is to install it:

```bash
pkg_add git
```

Next clone EFL's source code:

```bash
git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/core/efl.git
```

This will create a directory named *efl/*.

### Step 2: Installing Dependencies ###

As with packaged install, you'll need the following dependencies:

```bash
pkg_add bullet check fribidi gettext-tools giflib git gstreamer1 gstreamer1-plugins-base gstreamer1-plugins-good gstreamer1-plugins-bad gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-plugins-libav poppler libraw librsvg libspectre libtool libXp libwebp luajit png pulseaudio scim tiff xprintproto meson ninja
```

### Step 3: Configuring the Software ###

Set up these environment variables before building.

```bash
ulimit -n 4096;
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig"
export CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include -I/usr/X11R6/include"
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib/pulseaudio"
export CC="clang"
export CXX="clang++"
```

Once you have installed all the required packages and setup the build environment ``cd`` into the *efl-X.XX.X* folder and run:

```bash
meson build -Dsystemd=false -Deeze=false
ninja -C build
su
ninja -C build install
```

### Step 4: Carrying out Post Installation Tasks ###

Due to differing library `soname` versioning you also need to create necessary symbolic links ensuring full compatibility and working EFL on OpenBSD. These are subsequent to change, the important factor is that a valid symbolic link points to the destination as shown below:

```bash
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libcurl.so.26.8 /usr/local/libcurl.so.4
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libpulse.so.7.1 /usr/local/lib/libpulse.so.0
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libsndfile.so.7.0 /usr/local/lib/libsndfile.so.1
```

## Troubleshooting ##

If 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).

## Installing on Other Operating Systems ##

If you would like to install EFL on a different operating system visit the [Installing EFL](start) page.
