LiVES video editor compiled

December 20, 2021 — BarryK

EasyOS, like the pups before, has tended to be built with a large collection of applications. I like to see an app to cater for every need, at least for 95% of the users. Obviously there have to be limits to what is builtin, but one app I reckon would be nice to have is a video editor.

I have been compiling dependencies of LiVES, a really nice gtk-based video editor, written in C. I have been compiling the deps in OE, as reported:

Today, have added two more:

fftw        3.3.8
imagemagick 7.0.9_13

I have struggled to compile LiVES in OE, also struggled to compile in a running EasyOS. So many failures. I reported one of them:

I gave up trying to compile in OE, succeeded in a running EasyOS with version 3.0.2, the version used in Debian and Ubuntu, with various patches. I was lazy, just uploaded my patched source, without creating patches:

In EasyOS, with all the deps installed, this is how it was compiled:

# export CFLAGS='-I/usr/include/tirpc -std=c11'
# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu \
--disable-gtk3 --disable-libvisual --disable-projectM --disable-GIW --disable-frei0r --disable-liboil \
--disable-ladspa --disable-libbz --disable-toonz --disable-sdl2 --disable-doxygen --enable-threads=posix
# make
# new2dir make install

Here is the LiVES homepage:


I will include it builtin with the next release of EasyOS, for us to play with.
