This wiki explains how to compile GIMX from a Linux terminal.

Install development packages

On Ubuntu 14.04:
sudo apt-get install git g++ libwxgtk2.8-dev libbluetooth-dev libxml2-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libncursesw5-dev gettext xterm xdg-utils libmhash-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libxi-dev libx11-dev

On Ubuntu 16.04:
sudo apt-get install git g++ libwxgtk3.0-dev libbluetooth-dev libxml2-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libncursesw5-dev gettext xterm xdg-utils libmhash-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libxi-dev libx11-dev

On Raspbian Jessie / Stretch:
sudo apt-get install git g++ libwxgtk2.8-dev libbluetooth-dev libxml2-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libncursesw5-dev gettext xterm xdg-utils libmhash-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libxi-dev libx11-dev

On Fedora:
yum -y install wxGTK-devel bluez-libs-devel glib2-devel libxml2-devel libXi-devel libusb-devel (to be completed)

Download GIMX sources

git clone -b master --single-branch --depth 1 https://github.com/matlo/GIMX.git

Compile

cd GIMX
make -j 2

Replace "2" with your number of CPU cores.

Install

sudo make install

Set the setuid

A few gimx binaries need root priviledges.

sudo chmod u+s /usr/bin/gimx /usr/bin/sixaddr /usr/bin/bdaddr /usr/bin/hcirevision

Set Input Device Permissions

One way to give read permissions to GIMX is to create a special group, change /dev/input/event* group ownership to that group, and then make the gimx binaries setgid to that group.

sudo su

groupadd -f input

echo "KERNEL==\"event*\", NAME=\"input/%k\", MODE:=\"660\", GROUP=\"input\"" > /etc/udev/rules.d/99-gimx-input.rules
echo "KERNEL==\"js*\", NAME=\"input/%k\", MODE:=\"664\", GROUP=\"input\"" >> /etc/udev/rules.d/99-gimx-input.rules
chgrp -f input /dev/input/event* /dev/input/js*
chmod -f g+rw /dev/input/event* /dev/input/js*

chgrp input /usr/bin/gimx-config /usr/bin/gimx-fpsconfig /usr/bin/gimx-launcher
chmod g+s /usr/bin/gimx-config /usr/bin/gimx-fpsconfig /usr/bin/gimx-launcher

exit
