The Intel XDK is a tool to develop mobile Web apps with a native (iOS, Android, ...) wrapper based on Apache Cordova.


There is no ebuild and the installer will fail with the message "GTK library is not installed or installed version is not compatible" although it is installed. This is due to the fact that the installer just checks via RPM whether a package named gtk2 is installed.

A manual installation of at least version 0505 is possible as follows:

  1. Download the 64 bit version of the XDK from the XDK Download Page
  2. Extract the archive
  3. Install only the RPM file intel-xdk-0505-2.0-0.x86_64.rpm located in xdk_web_linux64/rpm/ as root via rpm -iv --nodeps intel-xdk-1816-2.0-0.x86_64.rpm
  4. Delete the broken symlink to libudev via rm /opt/intel/XDK/./
  5. Create the correct link via ln -s /usr/lib64/ /opt/intel/XDK/./
  6. emerge libnotify

Using Intel XDK

Start the application via cd /opt/intel/XDK; ./ . if you don't cd into the directory, you'll get an silent error.
