HARK-MUSIC Installation Instructions

 Installation from pre-compiled binaries

Compilation Environment

  • OS
    • See HARK Installation Instructions.

For other environments, please go for the source compilation.
The pre-compiled binaries for lucid are supported up to HARK version 1.1.0.
To use HARK later than version 1.1.0 in lucid, go for the source compilation.


For adding the HARK repository, see HARK Installation Instructions.

HARK stack (harkfd, hark-music) installation

sudo apt-get install harkfd hark-music


 Installation from source compilation (Optional)

Step1 : HARK Basic Package Installation

Here, the source compilation of only hark-music 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


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


Step2 : hark-music Package Installation

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

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



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

tar zxvf hark-music-*.*.*.tar.gz


Compile and install the source codes.

cd hark-music-*.*.*
./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
