Celestia Install instructions for UNIX
You need to have the following components installed before Celestia will build: OpenGL (tested with Mesa 3.4), glu, libjpeg, and libpng. Should you have a package based installation (most Linux distributions these days are), you will also need to install the devel packages for your OpenGL, glu and glibc packages.
OK, assuming you've collected all the necessary libraries, here's what you need to do to build and run Celestia:
./configure --with-INTERFACE [*] make make install
[*] INTERFACE must be replaced with one of "kde", "gtk", "gnome", or "glut".
Four interfaces are available for Celestia: - glut: minimal interface, barebone Celestia core with no toolbar or menu... - GTK: A full interface with minimal dependencies, adds a menu, a configuration dialog some other utilities. - Gnome: The full GTK interface plus a few Gnome integration goodies, such as preference saving in GConf. This looks and works very much like the Windows interface. - KDE3: brings contextual menus, toolbars, KDE integration, internationalization, bookmarks...
To build the KDE interface (requires various kde-devel packages):
To build the Gnome interface (requires gnome-devel and all GTK requirements):
To build the GTK interface (requires gtkglext and gtkglext-devel):
To build the GLUT interface (requires glut and glut-devel):
At the end of the configure output shows which interface has been selected, you should check it is correct before running make.
Starting with version 1.3.1, Lua is the new scripting engine for Celestia, the old homegrown scripting engine is still available. By default Lua support will NOT be compiled in, to enable it you need to download the Lua library from: http://www.lua.org/ Version 5.0 or newer is required.
Once Lua has been installed on your system, you need to run:
To check wether your Celestia has been compiled with Lua support, go to File -> Open. If you have '*.cel *.celx' in the filter box, then Lua is available otherwise the filter will contain only '*.cel'.
The GtkGLExt widget that is required in order to build Celestia with Gtk+ may be downloaded from http://gtkglext.sf.net. Note that depending in your distribution you may also need other packages containing various files needed by the build process. For instance, to build under SUSE Linux, you will also need to have the gtk-devel package installed.
Celestia will be installed into /usr/local by default, with data files landing in /usr/local/share/celestia , but you may specify a new location with the --prefix option to configure:
All the other usual configure parameters apply; you may see which options are available using 'configure --help'
If while running configure you see an error reporting that gl.h, is missing, you either don't have OpenGL installed on your system, or you don't have the corresponding devel package installed. If for instance you have Mesa installed, you will also have to install the mesa-devel package (or something named similarly). Missing glu.h or glut.h means that you don't have GLU, GLUT, or their devel pacakges installed.
