DrPetter’s SFXR with Ubuntu 8.10

“Ubuntu 8.10” you say? Yep, I’m still rocking the Intrepid Ibex. Ubuntu 9.04 doesn’t work as well as I’d have hoped and I’ve got my Ubuntu 8.10 partition all configured and useful.

I’m getting off topic, though. I’ve been playing with the Slick game library (which is an extension of the LWJGL for Java game programming). And with any video game, you need sound effects. Lots of sound effects. And when you don’t know how to make sound effects, what better way to make them than… randomly!? Yes, by using a “random sound effect” generator. Particularly, DrPetter’s SFXR.

Download SFXR from DrPetter’s page first, but if that fails you can grab it locally here.

The install is the standard linux make/make install, but it requires libsdl1.2-dev and libgtk2.0-dev installed first. (Thanks to cecil for pointing out the gtk2 requirement).

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install libsdl1.2-dev libgtk2.0-dev

Then run the make and install for SFXR (from within the SFXR directory)

make
sudo make install

Now you’re all set. You can run SFXR from the command line simply by typing sfxr.
