MinGW

MinGW is minimalist GNU for Windows.[1]

For general tools, here are some recommendations:

  • svn: for commandline svn, try this:
     http://subversion.tigris.org/files/documents/15/44049/Setup-Subversion-1.5.3.msi

for windows explorer integrated, try this:

     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/tortoisesvn/TortoiseSVN-1.5.5.14361-win32-svn-1.5.4.msi?download
  • text editing: use an editor that handles unix line endings and preserves them. Examples include notepad++, vim (vi is included in msys), and emacs.
  • zip: for commandline unzip, try this:
     http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/unzip.htm

for windows gui (or command line), try 7zip:

     http://www.7-zip.org/
  • wget: for downloading via wget:
     http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm
  • NOTE: please use only the tools recommended here. Especially, do not download and use other utilities from gnuwin32, because some of them have known conflicts. Also, do not use cygwin tools, or other perl distributions, etc. Unfortunately there are many different incompatible ports of various gnu tools. You have been warned!!

Setting up MinGW

A tutorial for how to set up a MinGW build environment.

  • Install MinGW base system only
     http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435&package_id=240780
  • Install MSYS (Be sure to grab the current release installer, not the tech preview.)
     http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435&package_id=24963
  • Install msysDTK directly over msys (direct link to file)
     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/msysDTK-1.0.1.exe?modtime=1041430674&big_mirror=1
  • Install m4-1.4.7-MSYS into your msys /bin
     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/m4-1.4.7-MSYS.tar.bz2?modtime=1162303978&big_mirror=1
  • Install strawberry perl in default location
     http://strawberryperl.com/
  • Set the environment variable INTLTOOL_PERL=/path/to/strawberry/bin/perl by adding the following line to c:\msys\1.0\etc\profile:
     export INTLTOOL_PERL=/c/strawberry/perl/bin/perl

Setting up Utilities

For all following instructions, when you run configure do it with --prefix=/mingw

  • install gnome versions of utilities (direct links below)
create a directory c:\msys\1.0\dev
add this line to your profile
     export PATH=$PATH:/dev/bin:/c/mingw/bin    
unpack everything there
you need these utilities at this point:
all these are from http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/
 pkg-config: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/pkg-config-0.23-2.zip
 gettext: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/gettext-0.14.5.zip
 gettext-dev: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/gettext-dev-0.14.5.zip
 gettext-runtime: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/gettext-runtime-0.17.zip
 gettext-runtime-dev: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/gettext-runtime-dev-0.17.zip
 glib: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/glib/2.18/glib_2.18.3-1_win32.zip
  • add this line to your profile
     export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/dev/lib/pkgconfig
  • upgrade autoconf to 2.63 from source
     http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/
  • upgrade automake to 1.9 from source
     http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/automake/

Compiling Sword

  • install libcurl
     http://curl.haxx.se/download.html
     (direct link) http://www.gknw.net/mirror/curl/win32/curl-7.19.0-devel-mingw32.zip
     everything in the zip file needs to be extracted to the appropriate directory under /dev
     you will need to make a directory /dev/lib/pkgconfig and put libcurl.pc there
     find curl-config script from linux and copy it to /mingw/bin
  • compile clucene
     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/clucene/clucene-core-0.9.21b.zip
     ./configure --prefix=/dev
     make
     make install
  • compile sword-1.5.11 from source
     use libcurl, not ftplib
     you will have to manually alter makefile to link against regex (do this in sword-1.5.11/lib/Makefile, line "#am__objects_3 = regex.lo", take out "#")
     compiling utilities is broken with mingw
     you do not need to compile with icu

Download Gnome Libraries

  • download lots of gnome libs and unpack them in dev
     for everything, you need the normal and developer package

  • setup xml2po
     install python 2.5
     ensure that python is on your path (windows environment variable)
     edit /dev/bin/xml2po shebang line to just say #! python
     install python libxml2 from here: http://users.skynet.be/sbi/libxml-python/binaries/libxml2-python-2.6.27.win32-py2.5.exe
  • install iconv
     You will need this version of iconv http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/libiconv.htm.
  • install gnome-icon-theme
     http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/gnome-icon-theme/2.24/gnome-icon-theme_2.24.0-1_win32.zip
     You may need to rename share/icons/gnome/ to share/icons/hicolor. This theme is required by the studypad

Compile Gnomesword

  • download gnomesword 2.4.1
  • alter configure script to allow compilation without scrollkeeper
  • update gnomesword to latest 2.4.x svn
  • save this to a shell script in your gnomesword directory
     #! /bin/sh
     ./configure --enable-gtkhtml --disable-scrollkeeper --enable-maintainer-mode --prefix=/dev
     sed 's/SWORD_LIBS = -Lc:\/msys\/1.0\/dev\/lib -lsword -lz/SWORD_LIBS = -Lc:\/msys\/1.0\/dev\/lib -lsword \/dev\/bin\/libcurl.dll \/dev\/lib\/libclucene.a -lz/' src/gnome2/Makefile > src/gnome2/Makefile2
     cp src/gnome2/Makefile2 src/gnome2/Makefile
     rm src/gnome2/Makefile2
  • run the script
  • make
  • make install
  • run gnomesword


  • Windows XP look

To get the windows XP look, go to /dev/share/themes/MS-Windows/gtk-2.0 copy gtkrc to /dev/etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
