Install library on your Debian system

What you must install

In the archive file, you can found lot of files. You can install the content of the api folder. For the libs (.so), choose the arch folder that fit to your architecture. ex with x86_64:

inc/*.h : The header files containing FMOD's prototype using by your compiler library

Normal way, Debian packages install libraries in /usr/lib. In this case, we are going to install a non-maintaining library. So we install it in /usr/local/lib.

cp ~/fmodstudioapi10903linux/api/fsbank/lib/x86_64/*so /usr/local/lib/
cp ~/fmodstudioapi10903linux/api/lowlevel/lib/x86_64/*so /usr/local/lib/
cp ~/fmodstudioapi10903linux/api/studio/lib/x86_64/*so /usr/local/lib/


Like previous case, headers are install in /usr/local/include instead /usr/include as normal way.

cp  ~/fmodstudioapi10903linux/api/fsbank/inc/*.h /usr/local/include/
cp  ~/fmodstudioapi10903linux/api/lowlevel/inc/*.h /usr/local/include/
cp  ~/fmodstudioapi10903linux/api/studio/inc/*.h /usr/local/include/


Add to your c file

#include <fmod.h>

and more if needed

#include <fmod_studio.h>


Add following options to your command line:

-I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib -lfmod
