Building and Running Macbeth

macos

You'll need to run several commands in a terminal window. Copy and paste each command separately and press Enter (The commands start after >). Now let's get started, and open a terminal window.

> brew --version

If it says "command not found", goto https://brew.sh/ and follow the instructions there. When homebrew is installed run these commands:

> brew install git haskell-stack wxmac freealut

> git clone https://github.com/tgass/macbeth.git
> cd macbeth
> cd macbeth-macos

> ./bundle.sh
> open Macbeth.dmg

Linux (Ubuntu)

sudo apt-get install git haskell-stack libalut-dev libglu1-mesa-dev freeglut3-dev mesa-common-dev libwxgtk3.0-dev lib32z1-dev libwxgtk-media3.0-dev

git clone https://github.com/tgass/macbeth.git
cd macbeth

stack setup
./env.sh stack build --extra-lib-dirs=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
stack exec Macbeth
