Prebuilt Packages

The maemomm packages are available from the extras repository, as is glibmm and gtkmm. To use the extras repository, you must add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list in your scratchbox environment, or on your actual device. Note that this example is for the Meaemo 4.1 "diablo" version. Do not add this line to your sources.list on your normal desktop environment.

deb diablo free
deb-src diablo free

For later versions of the Maemo platform, you must change that "duavkie" to something appropriate. At the current time, maemomm is not available for version of Maemo older than 3.0.

Once you have added these lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file, type the following commands into a terminal, to install the maemomm packages:

fakeroot apt-get update
fakeroot apt-get install libhildonmm-dev libhildon-fmmm-dev

You might choose to install additional packages such as maemomm-booster, libgconfmm-2.6-dev, or libhildonnotifymm-dev if your application requires them.
