Please give me directions to compile & install Emerald specifically in Raring Ringtail 64bit edition. I've tried to compile it from the source many times, but had no luck.(Compile log : http://paste.ubuntu.com/5612178/)
Thanks in advance!


how to compile under 13.04

The keypart of your compile error was the following:

/usr/bin/ld: main.o: undefined reference to symbol 'exp@@GLIBC_2.2.5'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'exp@@GLIBC_2.2.5' is defined in DSO /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libm.so.6 so try adding it to the linker command line

This shows that you need to link to the correct library - you do this by slightly altering the ./configure command.

The instructions you have linked to also need an additional change to the ./configure command to ensure that the path to the default libraries are known.

To summarise the compilation:

sudo apt-get install git autoconf libtool libwnck1.0-cil-dev libwnck-dev intltool libdecoration0-dev gawk compizconfig-settings-manager

wget cgit.compiz.org/fusion/decorators/emerald/snapshot/emerald-0.9.5.tar.gz

tar -zxvf emerald-0.9.5.tar.gz && cd emerald-0.9.5/

make clean
make distclean
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} LIBS='-ldl -lm'
sudo make install

some pretty pictures

After running emerald --replace & in a terminal you should see the translucent emerald beryl red window decoration theme
