A WebOS native application execution environment.

Preenv is a set of libraries and stubs that makes running WebOS native applications possible on the N900.

Note that "native applications" are a small subset of all WebOS applications;
most of these are OpenGL games.


Preenv for Nokia N900 / Maemo 5


First of all, you need to install Preenv itself. It is not visible in any repository at the moment and you will need to use X Terminal for this:
  • open X-Terminal
  • type: sudo gainroot (you need to have rootsh installed for this)
  • type: apt-get install preenv.


How to install and run WebOS software on the N900?
  • download the *.ipk file
  • unpack the *.ipk file using e.g. 7zip and extract the /applications/ folder from it
  • put the extracted /applications/ folder to /home/user/ on the N900
  • go to X-Terminal, type sudo gainroot (requires rootsh), then go to the game folder inside the /applications/ folder created above and chmod the executable file: chmod +rwx filename
  • run the game by typing ./filename (where filename is the name of the executable file, e.g. nfsuc in case of Need For Speed).



Preenv for Nokia N900 / Maemo 5


To make launching games easier, you can also create an icon in the Menu which can be used to start the game just like in case of normal N900 applications. To do so go to the game folder inside the /applications/ folder (as described above) and type: desktopgen appinfo.json.

Note: some OpenGL games require additional libraries to be installed. For instance, Need For Speed requires libgles, which can be installed by typing: apt-get install libgles1* in the X Terminal (after sudo gainroot).

@ Mustafa @ Varun: guys, try to install WebOS Game Manager instead, it should automatically install PreEnv as a dependency and you'll additionally get a nice and powerful GUI to configure and control it. Look here: http://my-maemo.com/software/applications.php?fldAuto=2143&faq=46 [No rate]
