    There should be a problem with box services, because I cannot download the zip file from the link you provided. Do you know any other way I can get those files?

    Thank you,

    Just one last question, maybe you can help with this. I managed to build successfully openscenegraph 3.0.1 in windows with cygwin and ndk r10e, everything set up for GLES2, using the following cmake command:


    Because now I have the 3rdParty folder I’ve just downloaded with your links, I am getting and the end of the build process such libraries as libosgdb_jpeg and libosgdb_png that I was missing so far. The problem is that now I am having linking error in my android app, of the style of:

    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:80: error: undefined reference to ‘png_get_io_ptr’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:68: error: undefined reference to ‘png_get_io_ptr’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:74: error: undefined reference to ‘png_get_io_ptr’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:102: error: undefined reference to ‘png_create_write_struct’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:106: error: undefined reference to ‘png_create_info_struct’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:110: error: undefined reference to ‘png_set_write_fn’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:113: error: undefined reference to ‘png_set_compression_level’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:121: error: undefined reference to ‘png_set_bgr’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:122: error: undefined reference to ‘png_set_bgr’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:135: error: undefined reference to ‘png_set_IHDR’
    C:/OpenSceneGraph-3.0.1-androidGLES20/src/osgPlugins/png/ReaderWriterPNG.cpp:137: error: undefined reference to ‘png_write_info’

    My android app is based on pretty much in the androidOsgExampleGLES2 provided by OpenSceneGraph. I did not forget to include the local libraries in the file (-losgdb_png \) and the Macro in the OsgMainApp.hpp file (USE_OSGPLUGIN(png)).

    Te question is: have you ever managed to work with those libraries in the past (libosgdb_jpeg and libosgdb_png)? Any hint about what I am missing? It should be something very stupid, but stil dont get it …

    Thank you in advance,

    BTW: using cygwin is not recommended. Use virutual box or vmware. It deserves your time.

    Bassicly yes, but always within windows via cygwin. It is weird, because plugins like rgb or tga works seamlessly, but I cannot say the same about jpeg or png plugins. I’ll try a couple of more things before trying with ubuntu …
