Motion2D installation under Unix platforms

You may need to be root, depending on the permissions of the directories where you choose to install Motion2D.

  1. Unpack the archive if you have not done so already:

    cd <install_directory>
    gunzip Motion2D-x.y.z.tar.gz # uncompress the archive
    tar xf Motion2D-x.y.z.tar # unpack it

    This creates the directory <install_directory>/Motion2D-x.y.z containing the files from the main archive.

    Make a symlink from Motion2D-x.y.z to Motion2D:

    ln -s Motion2D-x.y.z Motion2D

  2. Building.

    This step compiles the Motion2D library, and builds the example programs.


    cd <install_directory>/Motion2D-x.y.z

    This will configure the Motion2D library for your machine. Run ./configure -help to get a list of configuration options. Read PLATFORMS for a list of supported platforms.

    To create the library and compile all examples:


    If your platform or compiler is not supported, read PORTING. If it is supported but you have problems, see

  3. The online HTML documentation is installed in <install_directory>/Motion2D-x.y.z/doc/html/ The main page is <install_directory>/Motion2D-x.y.z/doc/html/index.html
That's all. Motion2D is now installed.
