Build Instructions


Getting the source

Clone the source code using git, and grab all the submodules:

git clone --recursive
cd PrismLauncher

The rest of the documentation assumes you have already cloned the repository.


Tested on OpenBSD 7.0-alpha i386. It should also work on older versions.

Build dependencies

You can use IDEs, like KDevelop or QtCreator, to open the CMake project if you want to work on the code.

Building a portable binary

mkdir install
# configure the project
cmake -S . -B build \
   -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=./install -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/local/lib/qt5/cmake -DENABLE_LTO=ON
# build
cd build
make -j$(nproc) install
cmake --install install --component portable

Building & installing to the system

This is the preferred method of installation, and is suitable for packages.

# configure everything
cmake -S . -B build \
   -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="/usr/local" \ # /usr/local is default in OpenBSD and FreeBSD
   -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/local/lib/qt5/cmake # use linux layout and point to qt5 libs
   -DENABLE_LTO=ON # if you want to enable LTO/IPO
cd build
make -j$(nproc) install # Optionally specify DESTDIR for packages (i.e. DESTDIR=${pkgdir})
