Use these instructions if you cannot install Polyphone on your Mac OS X with the available installers in the section “Download”.
The following applications are required:
- Xcode (available in the Apple Store),
- Qt Creator with its framework.
Unzip the libraries and place the directory lib_mac just next to the directory sources.
Open the file polyphone.pro with Qt Creator. Build the project, a bundle polyphone.app should appear in the directory lib_mac.
If the SDK path cannot be resolved, try modifying the file polyphone.pro to include these variables (adjust the Mac OSX version of first):
QMAKE_MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET = 10.11 QMAKE_MAC_SDK = macosx10.11
Complete the bundle
Run the following command to include libraries and frameworks inside the bundle (adjust the path first!):
Copy the framework Jackmp from lib_mac and paste it to lib_mac/polyphone.app/Contents/Frameworks. You may need to right click and select View content to go inside the bundle instead of executing it.
Finally, run the following command in a single line (adjust the last path first!):
install_name_tool -change /System/Library/Frameworks/Jackmp.framework/Versions/A/Jackmp @executable_path/../Frameworks/Jackmp.framework/Versions/A/Jackmp /Path/To/lib_mac/polyphone.app/Contents/MacOS/Polyphone
You can then execute the program or compress it as a .zip file to share it.
