How to run HelloWorld and tests on linux

cocos2d-x supports linux platform from cocos2d-1.0.1-x-0.9.2.
This document will describe how to run HelloWorld and tests on linux and android simulator.

The enviroment is ubuntu 11.04 + eclipse3.7.

1. Set up environment

1.1 get cocos2d-x source code

a) get latest code from git, it is not stable

git clone https://github.com/cocos2d/cocos2d-x.git

b) get released version, it is stable
http://www.cocos2d-x.org/projects/cocos2d-x/wiki/Download

1.2. install android sdk, use eclipse as IDE

Refer the link to install android sdk http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
Use this appoach to install jdk

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

1.3. install cdt for eclipse to compile c/c*+ codes in eclipse

Help -> Install New Software…-> Add…

The link of cdt is http://download.eclipse.org/tools/cdt/releases/helios.
h3. 1.4. install needed libs
sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev libglfw-dev freeglut3-dev libzip-dev
If you meet problem as me, maybe you should run the command before installing the libs
sudo apt-get -f
h2. 2. Run with makefile
First, build all libraries

cd \$COCOS2DX
./build\_linux.sh

COCOS2DX is the root of the cocos2d-x.
It is simple to run with makefile

cd \$HELLOWORLD/linux/
make
./HelloWorld

HELLOWORLD is the root of helloworld, in my environment it is /home/zhangxm/cocos2d-x/HelloWorld.
You can run tests in the same way. It is simple, isn’t it?
h2. 3. Run with eclipse
First, import existing projects: File-> Import…

Then select the directory of the root of cocos2d-x

Now, you can build and run HelloWorld and tests.

  • build
    Right click the project of HelloWorld -> Build Project
  • run
    Right click the project of HelloWorld-> Run as -> Local c/c*+ Application

You can run tests in the same way.

4. Run on android emulator

Please refer How to build and run HelloWorld.
