Installation of Stream-A-Game

This tutorial expects you to have Ubuntu 15.10 plus the appropriate graphics and OpenGL drivers installed on your computer. Make sure that in System Settings under Software & Updates on the Additional Drivers tab you have selected “Using NVIDIA binary driver” with the highest available version number or the ATI/AMD equivalent.

There are two options to install Stream-A-Game:

  • Pre-compiled: This allows running the system without modifications. Unless you need full control, use this approach.
  • From source: Everything will be compiled from scratch. This is less manual work than it sounds but it takes serious amounts of disk space and – depending on the speed of your computer – time.

Installation from source-code

Open a terminal and make sure that all dependencies are installed:

sudo apt-get install git openjdk-7-jdk libfreetype6-dev \
 libaudio-dev cmake libxtst-dev libasound2-dev \
 libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libpulse-dev python-mako \
 gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential zip curl zlib1g-dev \
 gcc-multilib g++-multilib libc6-dev-i386 lib32ncurses5-dev \
 x11proto-core-dev libx11-dev lib32z-dev ccache libxml2-utils \
 xsltproc unzip repo

#TODO: Virtualbox here?

After all these are installed, you can clone the project repository:

git clone --recursive

Next run the compilation script:

cd streamagame/

#TODO: add android app to script.

  • create a virtual machine in virtual box with linux type “Other Linux (64-bit)”, make sure it has enough RAM (> 1GB)
  • set up host-only network in virtualbox preferences
  • assign host-only NIC to virtual machine
  • start run script
  • start VM
