Moblin Project generator

The Moblin netbook OS v2.0 beta has just been released!
The simplicity and speed of it is overwhelming on my Samsung n310 netbook.
Check it out yourself at:

I took a look at their project generator for developing software for the OS and wrote an Ubuntu 9.04 installation guide:

“I took much of my information from their page, but since their Ubuntu guide doesn’t work for 9.04, I rewrote it.” visit here

1. Install Git

$ sudo apt-get install git-core

2. Install dependencies

$ apt-get install libmagic-dev libglade2-dev libglib2.0-dev libgconf2-dev libxml2-dev

$ sudo apt-get install gtk-doc-tools libtool (those lines were missing in the original tutorial)

3. Download the source-code

$ git clone git://

4. Build, Install & Run

$ cd projgen

$ ./

$ make

$ sudo make install

$ projgen

Now if you get a shared library error, follow these steps:

$ sudo gedit /etc/

and make sure these lines are in there and or add them: include /usr/local/lib

and now run $ projgen and it should launch.
