[1.12] Error building Ogre for Android

Post by Fergus86 » Tue May 14, 2019 12:06 pm

Ogre Version: 1.12
Operating System: Kubuntu 18.10
Render System: GLES2

I'm trying to port an Ogre project to Android. I have the Android SDK installed and configurated correctly.
I can build the SDK and run the SampleBrowser for the Linux_x86_64 target, but when I tried to build the SDK for Android (on Kubuntu 18.10) following https://ogrecave.github.io/ogre/api/lat ... -ogre.html I get the next error:

It seems OgreBites and OgreOverlay are not built, and an error of Ogre::EmbeddedZipArchiveFactory (I don't know if it's related). I tried adding the options:

Code: Select all

but they don't do anything, with these options added the summary of the building of cmake is:

Code: Select all


Building components:
  + MeshLodGenerator
  + Paging
  + Property

  + OpenGL ES2/ ES3
Building core features:
  + Mesh Lod
  + DDS image codec (.dds)
  + PVRTC image codec (.pvr)
  + ETC image codec (.pkm, .ktx)

these errors are caused by the libzzip and libfreetype dependencies not being available. Verify that OGRE_BUILD_DEPENDENCIES=TRUE.

Also I fixed the links to the prebuilt SDK. It still at 1.11.4 though.

I run this command to build the SDK:

Code: Select all

cmake ../ogre-master -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=/home/fergus/Android/Sdk/ndk-bundle/build/cmake/android.toolchain.cmake -DANDROID_NDK=/home/fergus/Android/Sdk/ndk-bundle -DOGRE_BUILD_DEPENDENCIES=TRUE
but according to the cmake configuration they are not avaible

Code: Select all

-- The following OPTIONAL packages could NOT be located on your system.
-- Consider installing them to enable more features from this software.
+ zziplib: Extract data from zip archives <http://zziplib.sourceforge.net>
+ freeimage: Support for commonly used graphics image formats <http://freeimage.sourceforge.net>
+ freetype: Portable font engine <http://www.freetype.org>
+ OpenEXR: Load High dynamic range images <http://www.openexr.com/>
+ Python: Language bindings to use OGRE from Python <http://www.python.org/>
+ Softimage: Softimage SDK needed for building XSIExporter <FALSE>
+ GLSL Optimizer: GLSL Optimizer <http://github.com/aras-p/glsl-optimizer/>
+ HLSL2GLSL: HLSL2GLSL <http://hlsl2glslfork.googlecode.com/>
and of course I get the same error as before. Maybe I have to add addicional options (a path for libzzip and freetype) to cmake?

For the Linux_x86_64 target the dependencies are met:

Code: Select all

-- The following external packages were located on your system.
-- This installation will have the extra features provided by these packages.
+ zlib
+ zziplib
+ freeimage
+ freetype
+ X11
+ Xaw
+ OpenGL
+ OpenGL ES 2.x
+ cg
+ Python
+ SDL2
+ Doxygen
