Using Homebrew

Note: This tutorial works best if you have a clean install of Snow Leopard. Otherwise, things often break due to library version conflicts.

last tested May 4, 2011

1. Download Homebrew

Install XCode if you don’t already have it ( http://developer.apple.com/xcode/ )

Open up the terminal and run the following line:

                 ruby -e "$(curl -fsSLk https://gist.github.com/raw/323731/install_homebrew.rb)"

2. Get the formulas

You will need to manually fetch the formulas, because they are not yet in the official homebrew directory:

                cd /usr/local/Library/Formula

                curl --insecure -O "https://github.com/OpenKinect/libfreenect/raw/master/platform/osx/homebr..."

                curl --insecure -O "https://github.com/OpenKinect/libfreenect/raw/master/platform/osx/homebr..."

3. Install:

brew install libfreenect

4. Test:

run the glview demo:

glview
