Don't generate marshallers in the source tree
This is much cleaner.  I'm unsure of the original motivations,
perhaps I just wanted to have all source files next to each other.
There is no functional issue with the build directory, though.

logdiag is a simple multiplatform schematic editor written in GTK+.

This software has never really been finished, and is no longer being worked on, although I strive to keep it building on Windows XP and elsewhere.

Regular releases are sporadic. git master should be stable enough. You can get a package with the latest development version from Archlinuxs AUR.

Windows installers can be downloaded from the Releases page on Gitea.


Runtime dependencies: GTK+ >= 3.8, json-glib >= 0.10.4, lua >= 5.2
Build dependencies: CMake >= 3.10

Build from source on Unix-like systems

First check that you have all the required dependencies installed, including development packages, if your distribution provides them.

Reserve a directory for an out-of-source build:

$ mkdir build
$ cd build

Let CMake prepare the build. You may change the directory where you want the application to be installed. The default is /usr/local.


Now you have two basic choices of installing the application:

  1. Using make install:

    # make install
  2. Using cpack:

    You have to choose a package format understood by your system package manager. CMake offers DEB and RPM.

    After cpack finishes making the package, install this file.

    $ cpack -G DEB
    # dpkg -i logdiag-version-system-arch.deb

Build from source on Windows

Note that using the current method were stuck with GTK+ 3.8.2, which works worse on Windows 10, but better on XP and under WINE.

First, install CMake and MinGW (mingw32-base-bin, mingw32-gettext-dev). Ensure theyre both in your system path. If you want to build an installation package, also install NSIS. If you want to build within a path containing spaces, fix your CMakes FindPkgConfig.cmake module to say:

separate_arguments(_pkgconfig_invoke_result UNIX_COMMAND "${_pkgconfig_invoke_result}")

Run the following command in the directory with source files to automatically fetch and set up all dependencies (note that Windows XP is no longer able to download from HTTPS sources, youll have to run this externally):

> cmake -P Win32Depends.cmake

Reserve a directory for an out-of-source build and let CMake prepare the build:

> mkdir build
> cd build
> cmake .. -G "MinGW Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

Now you can generate a package with CPack. You may choose between:

  1. An NSIS-based installation package:

    > cpack -G NSIS
  2. A portable ZIP package:

    > cpack -G ZIP

By default, that is if you specify no generator, both packages are built.

Cross-compilation for Windows

The procedure is almost exactly the same as before, including the requirements. Just install MinGW-w64 and let automation take care of the rest.

$ cmake -P Win32Depends.cmake
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=../ToolchainCrossMinGWW64.cmake \
$ cpack

Alternatively, for an unnecessarily bloated MSYS2-based 64-bit build:

$ sh
$ cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=ToolchainCrossWin64.cmake \
  -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -B build
$ cmake --build buildpackage
