The Butterfly Effect uses Nokia's [qt.nokia.com QT 4.4] as a graphics toolkit and Box2D for physics simulations.
To build The Butterfly Effect, make sure that you have below tools & libraries installed:
- gcc, g++, glibc-devel
- (autoconf, automake)
QT must be built with support for XML and SVG.
TBE has its own (slightly modified) version of Box2D in the source archive.
Note that for your distribution, packages may have slightly different names. For example, on opensuse, you need libqt4 and libqt4-x11 and libqt4-devel.
