Cygwin updating

Just follow the Unix instruction where your configuration command should look like For MS-Windows users I have two installation versions.

The "for dummies" version where you only need to download and run an installer and the "for geeks" version if you want to build the plug-in yourself.

You will need the following development packages: Most packages can be downloaded from Tor Lillqvist Gimp Windows port or from the Gnu Win32 project. Therefore, if you are cross compling, you will have to modify all the *files that come with the different packages.

The following script should do the trick (after updating TARGET to your needs): The window installer is created using Inno Setup, therefore if you want to create a UFRaw-installer you should install Inno Setup first.

Another reason is that building UFRaw on MS-Windows is a bit tricky and not very convenient (did I say already that I don't like this operating system).

I actually create the MS version of UFRaw in a Linux environment, but I guess that most of the users of the MS version don't have access to Linux, otherwise they would not need the MS version.

For the MSYS environment you should install the packages msys, mingw-runtime, w32api, binutils and gcc from the Min GW site.

Cygwin can be installed by downloading and running the installation program You can build a native Cygwin binary of UFRaw using the developement packages from Cygwin ports, or you can use Cygwin to cross build a Min GW32 binary. Extract all these files under one directory, for example behaves differently under Min GW32.

I use the Debian package mingw32 for cross compiling.

To build UFRaw yourself you can either read the detailed instructions below or just download it and get the shorter version in the README file.

I'm using Debian GNU/Linux on a Pentium machine, but UFRaw can be built on different Unix flavors and many different architectures.

To use the UFRaw Gimp plug-in you need first to install Gimp 2.0 or higher. If you only plan to use UFRaw's stand-alone tool, there is no need to install Gimp, but the Gimp Tool Kit (GTK 2) is still needed.

There is no need to install DCRaw itself since its code is incorporated into UFRaw.
