Looking Glass Client

This guide will step you through building the looking glass client on Debian based systems from source, before you attempt to do this you should have a basic understanding how to use the shell.

Building the Application


Build Dependancies

  • binutils-dev
  • cmake
  • fonts-freefont-ttf
  • libsdl2-dev
  • libsdl2-ttf-dev
  • libspice-protocol-dev
  • libfontconfig1-dev
  • libx11-dev
  • nettle-dev
Debian (and maybe Ubuntu)

apt-get install binutils-dev cmake fonts-freefont-ttf libsdl2-dev libsdl2-ttf-dev libspice-protocol-dev libfontconfig1-dev libx11-dev nettle-dev

Fedora 29+

yum install make cmake binutils-devel SDL2-devel SDL2_ttf-devel nettle-devel spice-protocol fontconfig-devel libX11-devel egl-wayland-devel wayland-devel mesa-libGLU-devel mesa-libGLES-devel mesa-libGL-devel mesa-libEGL-devel

OpenSuSE Leap 15.0+

zypper install make cmake binutils-devel libSDL2-devel libSDL2_ttf-devel libnettle-devel nettle spice-protocol-devel fontconfig-devel libX11-devel libconfig-devel libwayland-egl-devel

Downloading

Either visit the site at Looking Glass Download Page

Or pull the lastest using the git command. git clone https://github.com/gnif/LookingGlass.git

Building

If you downloaded the file via the web link then you should have a 'zip' file. Simply unzip and cd into the new directory. If you used 'git' then cd into the 'LookingGlass' directory.

mkdir build cd build cmake ../ make

Should this all go well you should be left with the file looking-glass-client. Before you run the client you will first need to configure either Libvirt or Qemu (whichever you prefer) and then setup the Windows side service.
