Guide to compile Giada 0.15.3 on UbuntuStudio 18.04

Post by mctom » Tue Oct 09, 2018 5:13 pm


So I've had troubles with Giada on KXStudio 14.04.5, and cutting the long story short I've switched to modern Ubuntu Studio 18.04. Still having troubles with the most recent Giada 0.15.2 applauncher, I've decided to try building and installing the most recent one.

Here's my complete list of commands that let me build and install Giada. Please don't use them unless you know what you're doing.
Please keep in mind you won't build Giada successfully on KXStudio or any other Ubuntu based system v. 14.04 or older using these commands.

Code: Select all

mkdir giada_src
cd giada_src
sudo apt-get install git
git clone git://

cd giada
git submodule init
git submodule update

sudo apt-get install autoconf libtool

sudo apt-get install libfltk1.3-dev libsndfile1-dev libsamplerate0-dev libjansson-dev librtaudio-dev librtmidi-dev libxpm-dev libxft-dev libxinerama-dev libxcursor-dev

./configure --target=linux

sudo make install
Now Giada has been installed, and in order to run it simply type

Code: Select all

Hope it helps someone :)
