This is Elfelli, a tool to calculate and visualize electric flux lines around charged bodies. To run Elfelli, gtkmm, at least version 2.8, needs to be installed.
To compile Elfelli, you need SCons. In many distributions you will also need the development package of gtkmm (in Debian this is 'libgtkmm-2.4-dev').
To install the prerequisites, the following command should suffice:
sudo apt install build-essential scons libgtkmm-2.4-dev
Compiling itself is very simple:
To install Elfelli, simply type:
By default, it is installed in '/usr/local'. If you want to change that prefix, alter the install command to:
scons install prefix=/install/prefix
