Here's the way to build and run this game from source.
Getting what you need
This project has the following dependencies:
Json-Cpp and SOIL are bundled with the source code, so you won't need to worry about them. But you'll need the development libraries for OpenGL, GLM, GLEW and SDL.
If you're using an Debian/Ubuntu system, you sould install these libraries with apt-get On Ubuntu:
apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev libglew-dev mesa-common-dev libglm-dev
On Debian the packages may resemble similar names.
On Arch Linux:
pacman -S sdl glew libgl glm
There's a file called premake4.lua in the project's root. This little file defines the project configurations, directories, linking settings and other things. With premake4 and this lua file it is possible to generate various kinds of projects. It can generate Visual Studio solutions as well as a set of Makefiles.
So let's get premake! You can get it from your distribution repositories or from http://industriousone.com/premake/download.
Now that you have premake installed, let's generate a Makefile. To do so run on the terminal
And BAM! There's your Makefile
Building and running
Now that you have a Makefile done, you just need to run
And that's it! If it all goes well (if there are no build errors), you should have yourself a Potato binary, ready to run! To run it just type in
