Bill quick question… I have had some issues with my build set up so I have ditched it and I am starting from scratch… I will use the new instructions and so install the newer C libraries…
I noted that the instructions sort of mimic the older ones… Should the following references to the the WINGW64 terminal actually be the UCT terminal… in other words were the two references to MINGW64 here not just updated?? Maybe I just don’t understand some nuance between the versions??
See text below from the building instructions for Windows…
<<* From the MINGW64 terminal, clone the darktable git repository (in this example into
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable.git cd darktable git submodule init $ git submodule update
- Finally build and install darktable:
mkdir build cd build cmake -G Ninja -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/darktable ../. cmake --build . $ cmake --install .
After this darktable will be installed in
/opt/darktable directory and can be started by typing
/opt/darktable/bin/darktable.exe in MSYS2 MINGW64 terminal.NOTE: If you are using the Lua scripts, build the installer and install darktable. The Lua scripts check the operating system and see Windows and expect a Windows shell when executing system commands. Running darktable from the MSYS2 MINGW64 terminal gives a bash shell and therefore the commands will not work.>>
