MEGAsync for Solus
Taken from here: https://dev.solus-project.com/T163
Source: https://ma.tc/ehuboqatec.md courtesy of @Logic-gate
Clone it -- https://github.com/meganz/MEGAsync
> git clone https://github.com/meganz/MEGAsync.git
> cd MEGAsync
> git submodule update --init --recursive
Get crypto++
> wget https://www.cryptopp.com/cryptopp565.zip #Tested on version 5.6.5
> mkdir ~/crypto && cd ~/crypto && unzip YOUR_MEGASYNC_PATH/cryptopp565.zip
> make libcryptopp.so libcryptopp.a #If anything goes wrong make clean. Note: only .so is needed..but what the heck.
> sudo make install PREFIX=/usr
make sure everything is set
> ld -lcryptopp
You should see something like this
>> ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; not setting start address
Export CFLAG for c-ares
> cd YOUR_MEGASYNC_PATH
> nano src/MEGASync/mega/contrib/build_sdk.sh
Add before line...
"package_configure $name $cares_dir $install_dir "$cares_params""
...this line:
"export CFLAGS="${CFLAGS/-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2}""
...so that it looks like this:
>> package_extract $name $cares_file $cares_dir
>> export CFLAGS="${CFLAGS/-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2}"
>> package_configure $name $cares_dir $install_dir "$cares_params"
>> package_build $name $cares_dir
>> package_install $name $cares_dir $install_dir
Get Qt5 deps -- we want qmake(5) not qmake-qt4
> sudo eopkg it qt5-base-devel qt5-tools-devel qt5-svg-devel
More build dependencies
> sudo eopkg it ares-devel curl-devel libglu-devel
Configure and build:
> cd YOUR_MEGASYNC_PATH/src
> ./configure
> qmake MEGA.pro
> lrelease MEGASync/MEGASync.pro
> make
That's it.. Exec located at MEGAsync/src/MEGASync/megasync
Additional setup for ease of usage:
> sudo cp MEGASync/megasync /usr/bin/megasync
> sudo nano /usr/share/applications/megasync.desktop
Paste this:
[Desktop Entry]

This doesn't seem to work any longer...Mega ./configure fails when extracting libuv.
Could you share a working Solus binary?

Otherwise it would be nice to know which GIT revision of MEGASync you are using.
