Download the Scenegate viewer with ‘clone’ (change User by the name of your Bitbucket account) or download the zip on the website:
$ git clone

Go to the scenegate directory (the following command is for the clone download) :
$ cd /imadevelopmentteam-scenegate-viewer

Change to the development branch
$ git checkout remotes/origin/SceneGate

Launch the building of the viewer :
$ autobuild build -A 64 -c Release

TO-DO: Update this package from the source on Github, the repository of the package must be changed. Right now packages use by the viewer are mostly downloaded from the Alchemy Viewer repository, those downloaded files fill two conditions to be recognized by the autobuild instruction: have a correct filename and the file contains autobuild-package.xml, include, lib and LICENSES. The updated version on github does not fill those two conditions. Until this update do the following instruction.

The building will stop because there is an error with “google_breakpad” so replace it with an updated version :

$ git clone

$ cp -r breakpad/src/. build-linux-x86_64/packages/include/google_breakpad

Rebuild it may take some time :
$ autobuild build -A 64 -c Release

Launching the SceneGate Viewer:

Binary code is in the file build-linux-x86_64/newview

$ cd /build-linux-x86_64/newview/packaged

$ ./scenegate

If you run across the media_plugin_cef failure message, installing these packages may help
$ sudo apt install libnss3:i386 libnspr4:i386 libxtst6:i386 libgconf-2-4:i386 libxss1:i386
