I am hoping to be able to make an F3F timer from a Pi. Someone already made software that seems to work perfectly. However, it is available in compiled form only for Windows. The source code is available on SF:
The problem is, I am not able to figure out how to build this source for the Pi.
Does anyone have any hints or tips to help me in the right direction?
Yes, the developer actually states that his development platform is Linux.
The problem is that I have no idea what to do. I have done a little bit of programming in Windows, but with Linux, I am totally lost.
I have googled a bit, of course. The general tips I have found, state that there should be a "configure" and/or a "make" script. I can not find any of those in the files I have downloaded.
What I did was this:
On SF, I went to "Code":
clicked "Trunk" and then "f3fTime_v004", which I expec is the latest version.
Then, I clicked "Download snapshot". That gives me a ZIP file which contains a bunch of files. There is one file named "f3fTime.pro" which looks sort of interesting, but I have no idea what to do with it. It does not seem like an executable script.
