Installing the latest version of Novembre
As usual, make sure to install the developer part of Qt, because you will need qmake for compilation. And, of course, get yourself a compiler. So far only gcc has been tested, but other compilers should work too.
Note for Debian/Ubuntu users - you need zlib1g-dev, qwt-qt4-dev and qt4-dev.
Getting the source
Novembre is using Mercurial for version control. If you have Mercurial installed, you can clone the novembre repository by
$> hg clone http://hg.code.sf.net/p/novembre/code novembre
$> cd novembre
It is recommended to compile in a separate folder. Copy Novembre.pri to it and make any changes directly in the file without messing up the original.
$> cd ..
$> mkdir novembre-build
$> cd novembre-build
$> cp ../novembre/Novembre.pri .
Novembre.pri contains general information, such as where Novembre will be installed, the location of library headers and allows turning on/off of some options. You will probably have to edit this file. The content of the file will change in the future, but I will try to keep everything well commented in this file, and provide reasonabe defaults.
To customize the build further you can edit the novembre/*.pro files. This is not required, but can be useful.
For compiling under Windows and MacOS I recommend using Qt Creator, as it will make a lot of things easier . It can be used to compile both qwt and Novembre and is easy to use. To compile you just have to open Novembre.pro as a project and click the Compile button.
On Linux just run qmake
$> qmake ../novembre/Novembre.pro
$> sudo make install
