#freeonebook

#Compiling

In order to compile this, you will need an ARM cross compiler (unless you are building natively on ARM, in which case skip this step). You'll also need make and pkg-config (otherwise ImageMagick won't build). On Debian, this is easy with:

$ sudo apt install gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf make pkg-config

#Dependencies

Image support is provided by ImageMagick, which in turn depends on libpng, which in turn depends on zlib. The eOneBook already has dynamic libraries for libpng installed, but you still need them installed in your cross-compilation environment so ImageMagick knows they will be there. A make target is included to simplify the process of installing them. If one or more is already installed in your cross-compilation environment, it will be skipped.

$ make install-deps

#freeonebook

Once dependencies are installed, simply run make in the freeonebook directory.

$ make

#Installing

Copy freeonebook to .a001 on your SD card:

$ cp freeonebook /path/to/sd/.a001

#Using

Insert your SD card into your eOneBook and open it up. The program will run automatically.

At present, the program is in pre-alpha state and simply initializes the display, logs button presses to stdout, and cleanly shuts down when requested by closing the eOneBook. Don't expect much.
