The above may not be the most remarkable panoramic picture ever — the back of a suburban hockey rink — but it’s the first image I’ve managed to stitch with hugin, a front-end to Helmut Dersch’s panotools.
It was a bit of a fight to get it working with Gentoo linux.
Update, 10 Feb 2004:
Many people have asked me how I installed this. To the best of my knowledge, this is how:
- emerge fftw. You might also need wx-gtk.
- Install the Vigra graphics library. Please note that, unless you specify --prefix=..., it will install in your home directory, which isn’t what you want.
- download the panorama-tools RPM from the Hugin site, then do rpm2targz panorama-tools-2.6bml12-2.i386.rpm
- Untar the resulting archive from /, to put all the files in the right place.
- Check that you have all the right libraries for the panorama tools library using ldd. I found I had to: ln -s /usr/lib/libpng.so.18.104.22.168 /usr/local/lib/libpng.so.2
- run ldconfig
- Build Hugin from the source archive. It should just work…
