Build from sourceΒΆ

You can build LectureSight from source if you want to run newer code than the last release, or need to make local changes.

Check that you have git and Apache Maven installed.

Create a destination folder for LectureSight:

mkdir -p /opt/ls/bundles/application

Clone the LectureSight repo:

git clone

Check out the branch to build:

cd lecturesight
git checkout 0.3-sprint

Copy the runtime OSGI bundles and configuration files:

cp -R runtime/* /opt/ls/

By default the demonstration profile will be built, this deploys a dummy PTZ camera so you run LectureSight without access to a real PTZ camera.

Build the LectureSight demonstration profile and install the resulting OSGI bundles:

cd src
mvn clean install -DdeployTo=/opt/ls/bundles/application

Alternatively, edit the production-with-gui maven profile in src/pom.xml to enable or disable the camera modules that you need for your installation, (see the ptz-####-only profiles for the required modules).

cd src
mvn clean install -DdeployTo=/opt/ls/bundles/application -Pproduction-with-gui

A successful build should end like this:
