Thread subject: sK1 Project :: OS X install instructions?

Can anyone direct me to the instructions to install UniConvertor on OSX Snow Leopard?

I've hunted on the sK1 site to no avail!

Thanks.

Hi,

As you can see, there is no official OS X bundle provided.
http://www.sk1project.org/modules.php?name=Products&product=uniconvertor&op=download

So you have to build it it self, if you want. To do this you will need a XCode tools http://developer.apple.com/technologies/tools/ ( unfortunately now you have to pay Apple for this product) and MacPort (at least it is free) http://www.macports.org/.

When you'll have MacPorts installed, then install the python 2.7 package. Then get the uniconv source bundle from http://www.sk1project.org/modules.php?name=Products&product=uniconvertor&op=download_old and build it by setup.py , follow the build instructions.

There is no any guaranty of success! Because some of depended libraries or their necessary versions of such libraries can be not provided with MacPorts. In this case, you can try to install it manually by configure/make. Anyway no any guaranty!

Good luck!

I gave up after a while.

The error about missing lcms.h: Install the old (!) version 1 library:
http://sourceforg...lcms/1.19/

The error about missing MacOSX10.4u.sdk: Install the SDK from the installation disk again by default it is not checked. This will take a long time because you cannot uncheck the basic XCode stuff.

The error about the missing jpeglib.h and freetype/config/ftheader.h: I had installed these before, but the header file ended up in /usr/local/include. Thus I used the following to include it:
export C_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/local/include:/usr/local/include/freetype2

A whole lot of warnings such as file was built for i386 which is not the architecture being linked (ppc) refer to this part: /usr/bin/gcc-4.0 -arch ppc -arch i386 -- I didn't know where to start looking for this problem.

At this point I gave up and switched to a machine running Ubuntu. It turns out that font handling doesn't work for my xfig files and uniconvertor is not going to work anyway! Luckily, installing xfig and saving as SVG turned out to be the easiest solution.

Actually mac ports provide a way configure the gcc march of packets. See http://guide.macports.org/#installing.xcode [supported_archs] . It depends on Mac you have, at the moment is x86_64.

Anyway it is looking like the code team developers needed to make a exact mac version.
