For all Linux/Unix operating systems, but the installation process is not yet tested under all systems. Please see below how the installation will be done.
All packages will be installed in /usr/local (to be conform with previous versions). These packages are for Linux/Unix systems only.
After an successful installation scidb-beta is executable.
If case of errors in the installation descriptions, please report to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Installation from source code
For a successful compilation the following packages are necessary: (Under older distributions some of them are not available, in this case the missing packages are not needed.)
sudo apt-get install libexpat1-dev libfontconfig1-dev libfreetype6-dev libxft-dev libxcursor-dev tcl8.6 tcl8.6-dev tk8.6 tk8.6-dev zlib1g-dev
yum install expat-devel fontconfig-devel freetype-devel glibc-devel glibc-headers libICE-devel libSM-devel libstdc++-devel libX11-devel libXcursor-devel libXft-devel tcl tcl-devel tk tk-devel zlib-devel
pacman -S libsm libxcursor minizip tcl tk
Furthermore the following packages are recommended, though not strictly necessary:
sudo apt-get install libgdbm-dev libzzip-dev
yum install gdbm-devel zziplib-devel
pacman -S gdbm zziplib
In order that the desktop associations will be built, also the following packages should be installed (not absolutely necessary, but recommended if KDE, GNOME, or Xfce is used):
sudo apt-get install desktop-file-utils hicolor-icon-theme shared-mime-info xdg-utils
yum install desktop-file-utils hicolor-icon-theme shared-mime-info xdg-utils
pacman -S desktop-file-utils hicolor-icon-theme shared-mime-info xdg-utils
Build Scidb as usual:

In case of problems please consult file INSTALL.
