A freshly baked tar ball is here:


You need DFB 1.4, which is usually not available in most distros (as I
said, I'm going to provide 1.2 compatibility if there is serious
interest in it (current Ubuntu has 1.2.7)). However, we have a link to a
Zenwalk 6.2 VMWare machine which has DFB 1.4 in our wiki. That machine
is due for a major overhaul. It has quirks (don't update Cairo under any
circumstances!), but can be used to play around with DFB at once:


There is no demo app included in the bindings, so please use:

And there are some 1.2 demo apps in C found here:

They should mostly be translatable 1:1 to Pascal. Notice that on
unprepared desktop distros you need to run your app with root
privileges. The DFB wiki explains about that, and what you can do to
avoid that (wiki server seems to be down again at the moment):
