Is current Spriter Pro for Ubuntu usable in 16.04?


Recommended Posts

For compatibility on any particular system/OS combination, your best bet is to try it and find out. We only officially support Ubuntu 14, because that's what Steam officially supports.

You can use your one Spriter Pro serial number to unlock your pro features on any computer you own, regardless of OS.

I managed to get Spriter Pro working on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver

TLDR; compiled gstreamer-0.10.36 and gst-plugins-base-0.10.36 and copied required libraries to the Spriter directory

  1.  Download the source files from https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gstreamer0.10/0.10.36-1.5ubuntu1 and https://packages.ubuntu.com/source/xenial/gst-plugins-base0.10
  2. compile gstreamer0.10 - run
    $> ./configure
    this should complete successfully then run
    $> make
    this gave me an error at line 67 in gst/parse/grammar.tab.c, this is actually only an issue at line 1824 where the function requires 2 arguments and only one is given, just add a second argument of 0 to the yylex function
     yychar = yylex (&yylval);
     yychar = yylex (&yylval, 0);

    then run make again,  and this should complete with warnings but without error as it did for me


  3. compile gst-plugins-base-0.10.36 run

    $> export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=<path to gstreamer-0.10.36>/pkgconfig
    $> ./configure



     copy the needed libraries from gstream-0.10.36 and gst-plugins-base-0.10.36 to the Spirter directory (for me it was ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Spriter )
    as you try to run spriter it will tell you each of the libraries that are missing for me it was


    $> cp ./gst-plugins-base-0.10.36/gst-libs/gst/app/.libs/libgstapp-0.10.so.0 ./gstreamer-0.10.36/libs/gst/base/.libs/libgstbase-0.10.so.0 ./gst-plugins-base-0.10.36/gst-libs/gst/interfaces/.libs/libgstinterfaces-0.10.so.0 ./gst-plugins-base-0.10.36/gst-libs/gst/pbutils/.libs/libgstpbutils-0.10.so.0 ./gstreamer-0.10.36/gst/.libs/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0 ./gst-plugins-base-0.10.36/gst-libs/gst/video/.libs/libgstvideo-0.10.so.0 ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Spriter


after that make sure steam is running and Spriter should work
