[maemo-developers] Building Hildon Desktop outside Maemo/Scratchbox environment

Hi Maemo heroes,

I wrote a step-by-step guide to have Hildon Desktop running outside the
Maemo/Scratchbox environment. Our major goal here is to make it easy for
distributons to package Hildon Desktop so that developers can have a
quick-to-setup environment for the development of plugins which doesn't
need to be built against ARM such as Python plugins. For now, this guide
only applies to Ubuntu (If you can point out the changes needed to work
on another distribution, please let me know). This is a call for testers
and brave developers to follow the guide and report the
missing/problematic bits.


There are some issues that still block us from getting Hildon Desktop in
a distribution but we're working on that.

Many thanks to F. Cauwe who already reported a lot of things that were
missing/wrong in the guide.
