- Mac OSX 10.7.5
- xcode 4.2
- Qt 4.8.2
Step 1: Install XCode if you have not already done so (you can get this from the App Store) and install Qt 4.8.x from http://qt-project.org/downloads. 5.x might work as well, but I have not tried that.
Step 2: Make a directory in your home directory for source code, I call mine "workspace"
Step 3: Download the missing qextserialenumerator_osx.cpp file from https://code.google.com/p/qextserialport/ . I downloaded the following file: qextserialport-1.2rc.zip. Save this file to the workspace directory in your home directory
Step 4: Open a terminal
> cd workspace
> unzip qextserialport-1.2rc.zip
Step 5: Check out the eepe source code
> svn checkout http://eepe.googlecode.com/svn/trunk eepe
Step 6: Copy the missing files to the eepe source tree and build xcode project. Unlike in Linux, qmake does not make a Makefile, but rather an xcode project.
> cp qextserialport-1.2rc/src/* eepe/src/
> cd eepe/src
Step 7: From Finder open the following file "~/workspace/eepe/src/eepe.xcodeproj". It should open in XCode if you have it installed correctly. Now from the XCode menu select Product -> Archive. This will build an archive version of the eepe code.
Step 8: After a few minutes the "Organizer" window should pop open and you should see your eepe project. Control-Click and select "Show In Finder". Then Control-Click the file "eepe 2-6-14 10.26 PM.xcarchive" (your file name will be slightly different based on date and time) and select "Show Package Contents". Navigate down this tree to Products -> Applications and find the eepe.app. Now drag this to your Desktop or the Applications directory and run the eepe.app
