在Ubuntu 12.04下编译qtiplot

2013年07月11日

不在windows下,再加上不想用盗版,所以需要一个origin的替代品——qtiplot。虽然我非常抵抗用这种不停点来点去的软件,用R的ggplot2画图多好啊,高效、优雅、漂亮,但是终抵不过老板一句“这个图你用origin画”。

有公司编译出了qtiplot的deb包,但是缺少一些功能,比如不能导出数据,这太坑爹了!好吧,我只有自己来编译。哪儿知道它有太多的依赖,并且头文件包含还不能紧跟时代。 解压源代码后复制build.conf.example为build.conf,然后在里面把库的链接改成系统内的目录,不要用它那个3rdparty的目录。然后就是qmake产生Makefile,接着一边make一边看出现什么错误提示,比如找不到头文件啊,这一般是因为某些依赖的包没有安装,使用Ubuntu的包内容搜索功能找到包含这个头文件的包,然后apt-get安装上。

注意:安装好包过后还是提示找不到头文件,就是文件包含位置不对,要么手动更改源代码将头文件位置改对,要么在build.conf里面添加一个包含目录。

唯一需要修改源代码的地方就是在./3rdparty/qwtplot3d/include/qwt3d_openglhelper.h中包含#include <GL/glu.h>

对python脚本的支持实在是弄不好了,需要sip和pyqt来生成一个头文件sipAPIqti.h,这一步我没有成功。

应该是需要下面这些包依赖:

sudo apt-get install libqt4-opengl-dev libmuparser-dev libtamuanova-dev libalglib-dev libqtassistantclient-dev libqtexengine-dev python-dev

那个手册没有编译安装,为了装它得下个latex,太不值了,所以在生成makefile后直接把手册的那部分全部删掉。

最后,关于qtiplot的文件关联问题。在Ubuntu 12.04下,如果右键选取一个新的应用程序来打开该文件,必须要求该mime类型在/usr/share/applications/下有一个对应的desktop文件,同时,该desktop文件中Exec=一栏中命令后面需要带有参数%f以用来表示此程序后面可以跟文件名。同时,在/usr/share/mime/application/目录下会有一个xml文件标示该mime类型。

下面直接把我的build.conf传上来。
