See Linux#PulseView (or any other of the OS-specific instruction pages).

Additional notes:

  • Use PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/<prefix-of-libsigrok-installation>/lib/pkgconfig/ if libsigrok and libsigrokdecode are installed to a non-standard prefix.
  • To change the install prefix: cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<prefix-dir>/ ..
  • To show compiler arguments during the build: make VERBOSE=1
  • To make a non-stripped debug build cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ..
  • To enable unit tests: cmake -DENABLE_TESTS=y ..
  • To enable decoders: cmake -DENABLE_DECODE=y ..
  • To disable -Werror: cmake -DDISABLE_WERROR=y ..
  • To build with clang: CXX=clang++ cmake ..
  • If cmake complains that it can only find Qt5, even though you have Qt4 installed: cmake -DQT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE:string=qmake-qt4 ..
