The software referred to here was produced as a prototype digital documentation system within the Mellon funded Raphael Research project. The software was built to test various ideas related to the storage, dissemination and description of museum/gallery related information.

The instruction listed here describe the steps required to set up an empty copy of the system for personal use. As stated the software is classed as prototype or beta software and further develop work would be recommended prior to making use of it for anything more than testing and development purposes.

This page is part of the Linux Setup discussion.

Initial set-up of your Linux machine

Follow the instructions and install the software indicated in the following to sections:

Vips/Nip software

Open up an xterm window and run the following commands

sudo mkdir /usr/local/vips-7.22
sudo ln -s /usr/local/vips-7.22 /usr/local/vips

Add the following lines to end of your .bashrc file

export VIPSHOME=/usr/local/vips
export MANPATH=$MANPATH:$VIPSHOME/man
export PATH=$VIPSHOME/bin:"${PATH}"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$VIPSHOME/lib
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib32/pkgconfig:/usr/share/pkgconfig:$VIPSHOME/lib/pkgconfig

Close your existing xterm and open a new one (this ensures your .bashrc edits are considered) and prepare to download the source code

mkdir software
mkdir software/vips
cd  software/vips

Download and unpack the current version of vips and nip2, for example:

wget  http://www.vips.ecs.soton.ac.uk/supported/7.22/vips-7.22.5.tar.gz
wget  http://www.vips.ecs.soton.ac.uk/supported/7.22/nip2-7.22.4.tar.gz
tar xzvf vips-7.22.5.tar.gz
tar xzvf nip2-7.22.4.tar.gz

Move into the vips folder and build the software as indicated:

cd vips-7.22.5
configure --prefix=/usr/local/vips-7.22
make
sudo make install

Move into the nip2 folder and build the software as indicated:

cd ../nip2-7.22.4
configure --prefix=/usr/local/vips-7.22
make
sudo make install
