This has only been tested on PCLinuxOS 2007.0, but it should be pretty general

For Linux you need the following packages installed (and all their dependencies):

  • allegro
  • liballegro4.2 (or whatever the latest version is)
  • liballegro4.2-devel

Once above packages are installed you are ready to compile an Allegro app

Use this scheme to compile your program in Linux in the console

  <cc> <filename> <options> <program> `allegro-config --libs`

For example, if you want to compile a C source file named myapp.c

  gcc myapp.c -o myapp `allegro-config --libs`

Then run the program


You can also automate the console compile and run process with the Scite editor
