Install Noobs

First you have to install Raspbian Wheezy or Noobs.

Upgrade software

Make sure you have the latest software version with apt-get upgrade.

Download openFrameworks

On your pc/mac download the latest version for linux armv6. Unzip the tar file into a directory called ‘openFrameworks’ and copy the directory to the ‘/home/pi/’ directory on the pi using e.g. samba or ftp.

Compile openFrameworks

This step will take approximately 1 hour when compiling on the Raspberry Pi. Make sure the cpu has 192mb of memory in the ‘memory split’ option under ‘advanced options’ in raspi-config. OpenFrameworks should now be in the directory ‘/home/pi/openFrameworks’. Run the following commands to install the necessary packages:

$ cd /home/pi/openFrameworks/scripts/linux/debian_armv6l

$ sudo ./

Then start compiling openFrameworks:

$ make Release -C /home/pi/openFrameworks/libs/openFrameworksCompiled/project

Compile your first app

Inside the ‘/openFrameworks/example/’ folder you will find example projects to test. To compile an application go to the directory of the example you will compile. From ‘/home/pi/openFrameworks/’ type:

$ cd /examples/3d/3DPrimitivesExample/

Then type ‘make’ to compile:

$ make

And ‘make run’ to run the program:

$ make run

Another way to run the program is to go into the ‘/bin/’ directory and run the app file directly:

$ cd bin

Then run the file:

$ ./3DPrimitivesExample
