Up Compiling from Source Code under Unix

In case your Unix distribution does not provide Enigma packages you may want to download the source package and compile Enigma for your own. This is usually a simple straight forward task.

Enigma depends on a few libraries and tools. Most Unix systems come with these libraries pre-installed these days. But for compilation you may need additional '-devel' packages besides the runtime packages of the libraries. Please verify that the libraries SDL, SDL_ttf, SDL_image, SDL_mixer and Xerces are installed on your system.

For a complete list of libraries and programs that must be installed to compile Enigma, please refer to the file 'doc/REQUIREMENTS' that is included in the Enigma source package.

Once you have everything installed, building Enigma is as easy as typing

./configure && make && make install

in the enigma directory.

If your distribution does not provide the necessary packages, you can download them from the following web sites:

If you want to compile the current SVN developmental version, you will additionally need curl and libcurl4.

If you're using Debian, you should have the following packages installed for compiling the SVN developmental version:

  • libxerces27-dev
  • curl
  • libcurl3-openssl-dev or libcurl4-openssl-dev
  • libsdl1.2-dev
  • libsdl-image1.2-dev
  • libsdl-mixer1.2-dev
  • libsdl-sound1.2-dev
  • libsdl-ttf2.0-dev
  • libxerces27-dev
