Build or move openscad to another path

NathanA
I followed the instructions on the openscad site to build it and its dependencies from source. It built the binary to the source directory but I don't want the source anymore.

Can I separate it from the source code?
Can I move it?
Or is there a way to build it to another path instead?

Re: Build or move openscad to another path

I usually grab from git, (so I can periodically update) I'm assuming
you're using the source tar ball

the Makefile should have an install target

you will probably have to put the dependency libs somewhere
(/opt/openscad-libs/ ?) and run with a LD_LIBRARY_PATH script

or

better yet for each dependency (like CGAL etc) go back to that projects
website and see how that project is intended to be installed
(many may well just be make install!)

I got lucky on Void Linux as most (if not all) dependencies were in the
repo - and new enough that I can build from github - there have been
some substantial bug fixes so from my point of view it was worth doing
(not sure how old the source tar ball is!)

at any rate its great you got it working!
