I installed Lively core from Github. Basically I have it working but
not in a useful way - right mouse click on the world shows the menu,
but clicking any item , I get an error or nothing happens.
Error in handleEvent when calling
<lively.morphic.Text#2C915...>>>onMouseUpEntry: TypeError: Cannot call
method 'openInWorld' of undefined
I was hoping the referred
will give me some hints but it does not seem to exist yet.
Is there anything I can do about the errors?
Installation notes - there were some issues that I managed to fix -
may be useful to others
# see https://github.com/rksm/LivelyKernel#readme
# get code
# Instructions do NOT work here: git clone
git at github.com:rksm/LivelyKernel.git ~/software/lively/LivelyKernel
git clone git://github.com/rksm/LivelyKernel.git
~/software/lively/LivelyKernel # works
# init project dependencies
received error :
../src/microtime.cc:1:16: fatal error: v8.h: No such file or directory
solution : had to
SWITCH libv8-3 package to get from NodeJS repo (not opensuse base)
install v8-devel and v8-private-headers-devel from NodeJS repo
# start http server on 9001
mzimmermann at home-server:~/software/lively/LivelyKernel> make start_server
minimal server starting: http://localhost:9001/
./node_modules/nodemon/nodemon.js --watch ./minimal_server
throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
Error: Cannot find module 'formidable'
solution : had to
npm install formidable
# page looks OK but clicking anything in world menu, I get an error
or nothing happens.
# You can install all the cool tools from Webwerkstatt's PartsBin.
Have a look at the HOWTO - does not exist.
