HARK-BINAURAL Installation Instructions

 Installation from pre-compiled binaries

Compilation Environment

See HARK Installation Instructions


For adding the HARK repository, see HARK Installation Instructions.

HARK stack (harkfd, hark-binaural) installation

sudo apt-get install harkfd hark-binaural


 Installation from source compilation (Optional)

Step1 : HARK Basic Package Installation

Here, the source compilation of only hark-binaural package is explained.
We assume that the HARK basic packages (such as harkfd, flowdesigner-0.9.1-hark) are installed by pre-compiled bineries.

sudo apt-get install harkfd harkfd-dev


hark-binaural package is installed by source compilation in the next subsection.

Step2 : hark-binaural Package Installation

To install hark-binaural, we need source codes of both hark-binaural and harkfd.

Firstly, move to your preferred directory to download source codes.



Download the latest hark-binaural-*.*.*.tar.gz from here and unzip them.

tar zxvf hark-binaural-*.*.*.tar.gz

Install libharkio header files (if not installed yet)

sudo apt-get install libharkio-dev


Compile and install the source codes.

cd hark-binaural-*.*.*
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-hark-inc=/usr/include/hark; make clean; make ; sudo make install;


The “*.*.*” describes the package version.

Here, we need header files of harkfd with –with-hark-inc option.

If you haven’t set FLOWDESIGNER_PATH in ~/.bashrc, use the following command to activate this package.

echo "export FLOWDESIGNER_PATH=$FLOWDESIGNER_PATH:/usr/local/lib" >> ~/.bashrc
