In order to compile Aramacao from source code, you need:
- GTK+ 3 and its dependencies (GLib, Cairo, Atk etc.)
- GStreamer 1.0 (gstreamer, gstreamer-pbutils)
This is a list of GStreamer plugins that can be useful to Aramacao:
- Base Plugins (ALSA driver, OGG/Vorbis)
- Good Plugins (various audio drivers, AU, FLAC, WAVE)
- Ugly Plugins (MPEG audio)
- Bad Plugins (Bs2b library support)
for the complete list of bugs.
Some GTK themes are known to cause glitches and problems. If you're using Oxygen-GTK and you are experiencing crashes with drop-down lists, add the following lines to
your ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css file:
Aramacao current version is 1.2.
Aramacao was inspired by Papagayo. Some icons were taken or modified from icons taken from Cynthiune.

INSTALLATION FROM SOURCES
First you need to install the development packages of GTK+3:
sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev
This should install all the required dependencies, too.
Then you need to install the development packages of GStreamer and GStreamer-pbutils:
sudo apt-get install libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev
Then download Aramacao source code and run the usual Autotools to compile and install the software, e.g.:
sudo make install
For Slackware a Slackbuild package is available at the download
All the required headers and libraries are already installed in a common Slackware 14.x installation.
