SFXR - Sound Making Tool

Hi all,

There's a great sound-making on here: http://www.cyd.liu.se/~tompe573/hp/project_sfxr.html

Unfortunately, there's only a standalone for windows, but he DOES have the source code available and I made a walkthrough on how to build it for Ubuntu. Thanks a LOT to _ar for his help getting this to work.

How to build SFXR on Ubuntu
  1. First download and extract the source code from http://www.cyd.liu.se/~tompe573/hp/files/sfxr-sdl.tar.gz

  2. Now you need the library dependencies. For each of the libraries listed below run
    sudo apt-get install libraryname
    • build-essential
    • libasound2-dev
    • libasound2-plugins
    • libsdl-dev
    • libgtk2.0-dev

  3. Then CD to the directory you extracted the .tar in and type
That should work! If not, leave a comment and I (or someone else) will try to help you :-)

I think: It is a very cool tool.

Thank you for your installation.
