Build Rocrail from Source

Get Rocrail Sources

Git Clone

Request access to the sources in the Rocrail Forum.

git clone <granted link> Rocrail

Updating the local tree

Only the first time a clone is downloaded, afterward only the changes:

cd Rocrail
git pull

Resolve conflicts

Sometimes local changes can conflict with a pull from the repository like:

error: Your local changes to 'rocs/rocs-gen.tar.gz' would be overwritten by merge.  Aborting.
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.

Solution 1:

git reset --hard
git pull

Solution 2:

git stash
git pull
git stash pop

Build Rocrail from source (Linux)

Use the following commands as a normal user, not as root:

  • Install git, libusb-dev and the wxGTK (libwxgtk3.0-0, wxGTK-devel) including develop package (build-essential)
  • check out the Rocrail sources
  • cd Rocrail
  • make all
  • sudo make install

On certain Linux distributions a 'make fromtar" may be required.


  • Many header and source files are generated in the build process and are not in the repository!
  • If you have problems compiling the rocs library, the object generator binary does not fit to your Linux system. Try make fromtar.
  • After changing the rocs.xml you must also commit the rocs-gen.tar.gz in svn!!!
