This documentation explains how to setup a build environment for FileZilla 3 and how to compile it under Debian based distributions. This guide has been created under Debian 9 (Stretch), but should work as well on other Debian-based distributions.

Setting up build environment[edit]

As root, execute:

apt build-dep filezilla libwxgtk3.0-dev
apt install libtool git subversion xdg-utils

Back as normal user, execute:

mkdir ~/prefix
export PATH="$HOME/prefix/bin:$PATH"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$HOME/prefix/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$HOME/prefix/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH"

Getting dependencies[edit]

wxWidgets[edit]

 cd ~
 git clone --branch WX_3_0_BRANCH --single-branch https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets.git wx3
 cd wx3
 ./configure --prefix="$HOME/prefix" --enable-shared --disable-static --enable-unicode
 make && make install

libfilezilla[edit]

 cd ~
 svn co https://svn.filezilla-project.org/svn/libfilezilla/tags/0.15.1 lfz
 cd lfz
 autoreconf -i
 ./configure --prefix="$HOME/prefix" --enable-shared --disable-static 
 make && make install

Compiling FileZilla[edit]

 cd ~
 svn co https://svn.filezilla-project.org/svn/FileZilla3/tags/3.40.0 fz
 cd fz
 autoreconf -i
 ./configure --prefix="$HOME/prefix" --enable-shared --disable-static 
 make && make install
