LibTIFF-4.0.3

Introduction to LibTIFF

The LibTIFF package contains the TIFF libraries and associated utilities. The libraries are used by many programs for reading and writing TIFF files and the utilities are used for general work with TIFF files.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 systemd platform.

Package Information

LibTIFF Dependencies

Optional

libjpeg-turbo-1.3.1, Freeglut-2.8.1 (required for tiffgt), and JBIG-KIT

Installation of LibTIFF

Install LibTIFF by running the following commands:

sed -i '/glDrawPixels/a glFlush();' tools/tiffgt.c &&
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static &&
make

To test the results, issue: make check.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

sed -i ...: This command fixes a bug which is causing tiffgt to open blank windows in some cases.

--disable-static: This switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.
