Building

Via flatpak (recommended)

The recommended way to build is using flatpak, which will take care of all dependencies and avoid any problems that may come from different system configurations.

If you don't have the flathub repo in your remote-list for flatpak you will need to add that first:

$ flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

Then install the required flatpak platform and SDK, if you dont have them already:

$ flatpak install org.gnome.{Platform,Sdk}//41 org.freedesktop.Sdk.Extension.rust-stable//21.08 org.freedesktop.Sdk.Extension.llvm12//21.08

To compile and install as a flatpak, run

$ flatpak-builder --install flatpak-build/ build-aux/org.freedesktop.ryuukyu.Helvum.json

You can then run the app via

$ flatpak run org.freedesktop.ryuukyu.Helvum

Manually

For compilation, you will need:

  • Meson
  • An up-to-date rust toolchain
  • libclang-3.7 or higher
  • gtk-4.0 and pipewire-0.3 development headers

To compile and install, run

$ meson setup build && cd build
$ meson compile
$ meson install

in the repository root. This will install the compiled project files into /usr/local.
