So, I am just trying to get OpenFramework to work with QtCreator.
(Because VisualStudio requires you to create an account … )
I am using Windows 10 64bit.
I have installed msys2 and QtCreator (the recommended version).
I am following this tutorial: https://openframeworks.cc/setup/msys2/
I am currently “stuck” on the following part of that tutorial:
Open an MINGW32 shell (
C:\msys64\mingw32.exe ) and install OF dependencies:
//That worked fine for me
next, compile oF libraries:
When I cd into the directory that I unzipped oF into and type in the following:
$ make Makefile
I get this:
make: *** No rule to make target ‘Makefile’. Stop.
I am using the 64 bit “version” of the msys2 shell thing.
This is the first time I am using “make” or anything like it, so I really have no idea …
Any help would be appreciated …
You need to cd to
your_oF_directory/libs/openFrameworksCompiled/project not the directory you unzipped OF into.
Then it should work.
Hope that it works for you!
What is the difference between the two?
I have unzipped the downloaded stuff into a folder called “of_v0.11.0_msys264_release” directly in the C drive.
And then I cd’ed into there, into the specified folder.
Where shold I put the OF files instead?
Any help on this would be really appreciated, because the “official” installation tutorial isn’t quite clear about how to do this / where exactly to put the downloaded and unzipped oF folder.
And I would really like to get oF to work …
Can you post some screenshots of the window showing where you have cd’d to.
Also can you post a screenshot of either the
DIR command or
ls -la when you are in the folder you are typing
Your earlier message made it seem you were typing make at the level that libs/ addons/ examples/ etc are when you need to be typing it at this folder level:
The more info you can share, the easier it will be to help
All the best,
When I try to cd into C:, that does not work now for some reason.
When I try to go “back” as far as I can with “cd …” and then enter “dir”, I get this:
MyUsernmel@MyPcName MSYS /
InstallationLog.txt etc mingw32.ico msys2_shell.cmd
autorebase.bat home mingw32.ini network.xml
autorebasebase1st.bat installer.dat mingw64 opt
bin installerResources mingw64.exe proc
clang32 maintenancetool.dat mingw64.ico tmp
clang64 maintenancetool.exe mingw64.ini usr
components.xml maintenancetool.ini msys2.exe var
dev mingw32 msys2.ico
dir mingw32.exe msys2.ini
I edited the username and PC-name for obvious reasons …
So, should I try to find that folder and place the oF files there?
This seems to be the “root folder” of MSYS2, or something like that …
(Don’t know if that is the correct word for that)
I just tried on a PC.
did the install dependencies step
If you are going straight from a new shell and you have the download unzipped in C:
You can do:
If you are still running into issues and are not super familiar with navigating via shell etc, I think it might be worth using the VS download and dealing with the MS account annoyance ( I did the sign in once and have never had any hassle since ).
I hope this helps.
Yes, I think it might be better for everybody involved if I just used the VS version …
But thanks anyway for your valuable time and for trying to help me!
(Yes, I am not really used to working via command line …)
