Manual installation instructions

Installation from source

At first, get the source tarball: http://launchpad.net/harmonyseq/stable/0.16/+download/harmonySEQ-0.16.tar.gz.

harmonySEQ requires ALSA, gtkmm and liblo libraries to run. So at first install them (with the development files/headers, since they are needed for compilation).

On Ubuntu Natty/Oneiric/Precise you should just run from command line:

sudo apt-get install libgtkmm-2.4-1c2a libglibmm-2.4-1c2a libasound2 libgtkmm-2.4-dev libglibmm-2.4-dev libasound2-dev desktop-file-utils shared-mime-info libgtk2.0-bin liblo7 liblo-dev

That should satisfy all requirements.

On Fedora you should probably run as root [the following command is not verified, please check it and report me any issues]:

yum install gtkmm24-devel glibmm24-devel glibmm24 gtkmm24 alsa-lib alsa-utils alsa-lib-devel liblo

After unpacking the source .tar.gz file, execute in harmonySEQ‘s source directory the famous three commands:

./configure
make
make install 

The last command must be run as root (so it would be sudo make install on Ubuntu).

Look for any error messages, they may hint you what libraries required to compile are missing on your system. If everything goes well, enter

harmonySEQ

to launch the sequencer.

In case of any problems with installing harmonySEQ, please contact me. Any feedback is welcome and I promise to answer you.

Uninstalling

Execute following command in the harmonySEQ source directory (as root):

make uninstall 

This should remove harmonySEQ from your system.
