Fotokopierer needs the OpenCV 3.4.14, Podofo 0.9.7 and FreeType libraries. These libraries can be either used as shared libraries installed on your system or can be compiled and statically linked. In order to build Fotokopierer for the official Sailfish OS app store, you must statically link against these libraries.

In all cases you need CMake to build Fotokopierer.

Build with shared libraries in the Sailfish OS build engine

cd path/to/fotokopierer
path/to/SailfishOS/bin/sfdk -c target=SailfishOS- build

In order to create

path/to/SailfishOS/bin/sfdk -c target=SailfishOS- package

Note that the OS version and target might differ for you.

Build with static libraries in the Sailfish OS build engine

You need to download the sources of OpenCV, Podofo and FreeType (the CMake file will automatically download them):

Extract both archives to the 3rdparty subdirectory.

cd path/to/fotokopierer
mkdir 3rdparty
cd 3rdparty
unzip path/to/
tar -xzf path/to/podofo-0.9.7.tar.gz
tar -xzf path/to/freetype-2.10.4.tar.gz

Finally, build the project as with shared libraries. The CMake build script will automatically compile all 3rd-party libraries

cd path/to/fotokopierer
path/to/SailfishOS/bin/sfdk -c target=SailfishOS- build
