This page describes how to build/install the sigrok subprojects on Linux.

Distribution packages

See Downloads.

Building

IMPORTANT: The following sections on installing build requirements are distro-specific examples and may or may not be out of date, depending on which distro you use. Please check the official build requirements list in the wiki or the current libsigrok README for the full list of requirements.

libserialport

Installing the requirements

Debian/Ubuntu/Mint

$ sudo apt-get install git-core gcc make autoconf automake libtool

Arch

$ sudo pacman -S git gcc make autoconf automake libtool

Building

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/libserialport
$ cd libserialport
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

libsigrok

Installing the requirements

Debian/Ubuntu/Mint

$ sudo apt-get install git-core gcc g++ make autoconf autoconf-archive \
  automake libtool pkg-config libglib2.0-dev libglibmm-2.4-dev libzip-dev \
  libusb-1.0-0-dev libftdi1-dev check doxygen python-numpy \
  python-dev python-gi-dev python-setuptools swig default-jdk

Fedora (18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23)

$ sudo yum install git gcc make autoconf autoconf-archive automake libtool pkgconfig \
   glib2-devel libzip-devel libusb1-devel libftdi-devel check-devel doxygen
For C++ bindings, add sudo yum install glibmm24-devel.
For Python bindings, add sudo yum install python-devel numpy pygobject3-devel swig.
For Fedora 23, you need as well: redhat-rpm-config and note that libusb1-devel is now libusbx-devel.

Arch

$ sudo pacman -S git gcc make autoconf autoconf-archive automake libtool \
  pkg-config glib2 glibmm libzip libusb libftdi check doxygen python-numpy \
  python-setuptools swig jdk8-openjdk

Building

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/libsigrok
$ cd libsigrok
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

Device access

Please read this FAQ entry for any extra steps you may need to take to get your specific device working.

Please see Building#FAQ if you are sure that you installed all requirements properly but still encounter some issues.

libsigrokdecode

Installing the requirements

Debian/Ubuntu/Mint

$ sudo apt-get install git-core gcc make autoconf automake libtool pkg-config libglib2.0-dev python3-dev

Fedora (18, 19, 20)

$ sudo yum install git gcc make autoconf automake libtool pkgconfig glib2-devel python3-devel check-devel

Arch

$ sudo pacman -S git gcc make autoconf automake libtool pkgconfig glib2 python check

Building

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/libsigrokdecode
$ cd libsigrokdecode
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

sigrok-cli

Installing the requirements

Debian/Ubuntu/Mint'

$ sudo apt-get install git-core gcc make autoconf automake libtool pkg-config libglib2.0-dev

Fedora (18, 19)

$ sudo yum install git gcc make autoconf automake libtool pkgconfig glib2-devel

OpenSuse

$ sudo zypper install git gcc make autoconf automake libtool pkgconfig glib2-devel

Arch

$ sudo pacman -S git gcc make autoconf automake libtool pkgconfig glib2

Building

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/sigrok-cli
$ cd sigrok-cli
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

PulseView

Installing the requirements

Debian/Ubuntu/Mint

$ sudo apt-get install git-core g++ make cmake libtool pkg-config \
  libglib2.0-dev libboost-test-dev libboost-serialization-dev \
  libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-system-dev libqt5svg5-dev qtbase5-dev

Fedora (18, 19, 23, 27)

$ sudo yum install git gcc cmake libtool pkgconfig glib2-devel \
  boost-devel qt5-devel

Arch

$ sudo pacman -S git gcc make cmake libtool pkgconfig glib2 boost qt5 \
  qt5-base qt5-svg

Building

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/pulseview
$ cd pulseview
$ cmake .
$ make
$ sudo make install

Troubleshooting

When building pulseview from the repository, make sure to install libsigrok and libsigrokdecode by building them from source too. Building the newest pulseview with outdated libraries (forked GH repositories, debian/ubuntu packages, etc) may cause errors like these to show up when running cmake.

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:86 (message):
 libsigrok C++ bindings missing, check libsigrok's 'configure' output
 (missing dependencies?)
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.7/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:415 (message):
  A required package was not found
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  /usr/share/cmake-3.7/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:588 (_pkg_check_modules_internal)
  CMakeLists.txt:83 (pkg_check_modules)

To make sure the dependencies are installed, you can use the following (Devuan/Debian/Ubuntu):

$ sudo pkg-config --list-all | grep <dependency package name>

To check the installed version, use:

$ sudo pkg-config --print-provides <dependency package name>

Hint: If something goes wrong, you can see what make is doing by running:

$ make VERBOSE=1
