Possibly I'm just being dim, but I see no controls in the Discussion tab that
would allow editing or link to anything connected to editing. If I go to 'Log
in' I'm offered no option to create an account.
While it's fresh in my mind, I'll just list what I did here for now.
I installed the packages individually because I was reading up on each one as I
went, but I think what I did was equivalent to:
pkg install git make automake autoconf clang boost libjpeg libpng libtiff
git clone https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray
I notice the existing guide specifies imagemagick; I don't think this is
necessary for a minimal povray build, but it is useful and I presume it brings
the image libs with it. For my system, zlib was already installed, and openexr
doesn't seem to be available for Termux.
I followed the unix build instructions for non-privileged users, supplying an
install target directory under my home directory at configure:
../configure --prefix=/absolute/install/path COMPILED_BY="name <email>"
Aside from --prefix, the default configure worked fine. Once the build had
completed, I then started looking for ways to streamline further tinkering.
The Termux wiki [https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Main_Page] is particularly helpful
in this regard; I soon found out about [termux-setup-storage] to enable writing
to communal areas of the device. I also found it necessary to create
~/.termux/termux.properties to add left/right arrows to the extra keys row (I
ended up using the example extra keys in the wiki).
I added my install location to PATH in ~/.bashrc so I could run POV-Ray from
anywhere in the file tree, and I can confirm that setting Output_File_Name to
storage/dcim/POVRay/ or similar sends the output to the standard images
I think that's everything!
