GPS Moving map
Welcome to the fmapdisplay home page. For right now all I'm posting is
instructions on how to get this installed as it's not the most intuitive
thing to do and I just havn't had time to work on the build system.
Download all three files: con-tiger-0.1.tar.bz2, fmapdisplay-0.1.tar.bz2,
If you havn't downloaded the tarballs click
Here and then
go to the files area.
con-tiger contains the map generation utility and some headers fmapdisplay
needs. fmapdisplay requires a
to be passed with ./configure. fmap-etc is the /etc structure the program
is looking for and also contains a map of the area the program presently
defaults to on startup. Incidentaly, it's Salt Lake City, Utah.
Build con-tiger before running ./configure on fmapdisplay. There is no need
to run make install at this time.
Once fmapdisplay is build you will need to copy
plugins/roads/.libs/libroads.so to /etc/fmap.d/libs
If you have already untarred fmap-etc there will be a config file that
points to the libroads.so and another that makes sure it loads the road
file that was included.
Oh, and there is that whole gtk-2.0 requirement. To avoid any trouble I
just downloaded everything from gtk.org and compiled the latest versions.
That really is the safest way to not have any compile issues. Before I did
that I was having trouble compiling other peoples sample programs.
Last of all, thanks for trying out my program. It improves every day, and
the meat of it seems to be done, now it's down to feature enhancement. If
this hasn't worked for you try emailing me. (shaun at linuxhost dot cc)
