 +RTPack is a general purpose utility that does several useful things from the command line.  The .exe version is used from .bat files in windows, and on linux .. well, it doesn'​t have an .exe and it used from shell scripts or something.
 +
 +What's it do?
 +
 +  * Converts most image formats to .rttex. ​ (.rttex is Proton'​s custom image format, it can do things like use png or jpg compression internally, remember the pre-tweaked widths/​heights,​ stuff like that.
 +  * Can create fonts
 +  * Can compress any file (Proton will detect and decompress compressed files)
 +  * Other bad ass stuff. ​ Or not, I can't remember

-There is a cmake build file that can be used to build the tool in Linux.+First of you'll need to have a couple of dependencies installed and/or available.
  
 You need to get PVRTexLib from Imagination (it's a free download but requires registration). Extract the contents of the package under ''​tools/​RTPack''​ preserving paths - you should get a subdirectory called ''​PVRTexLib''​ there. You need to get PVRTexLib from Imagination (it's a free download but requires registration).

 +**NOTE:** RTPack currently supports only the 3.x versions of PVRTexLib. The newest version available from Imagination however is on the 4.x series which is API incompatible with the 3.x versions. Either you need to find a 3.x version of PVRTexLib or port the RTPack code to work with the 4.x versions. (Some very old 3.x series version for 32-bit Linux can be found from here https://​netst.org/​pub/​linux/​ARM/​OMAP/​TI/​Graphics_SDK_4_03_00_02/​GFX_Linux_SDK/​OVG/​SDKPackage/​Utilities/​PVRTexLib/​ )

-For me using the latest PVR SDK files for Linux I can't use the instructions above: +If something got wrong, hopefully you got an error message that explains ​the situationIn any case, if you are stuck feel free to ask on the [[http://www.rtsoft.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?27-Proton-SDK-General-Discussion|forums]].

-There are missing funcs in the the latest linux PVR tex lib libraries. +
-Functions called in TexturePacker.cpp ​are not going to be found - only in the linux version of the .a file(great). +
- +
-To check your version do things like: +
-strings libPVRTexLib.a |grep ProcessRAWPVR ​ ( <- This func will not be there and some others ) +
- +
-Fortunately you can find an older version of PVR Texlib that isn't missing the functions at: +

-grab the files there and +
-grab the .a file from the subdir Linux +
- +
-Then: +
- +
-  * cd to RTPack +
-  * mkdir PVRTexLib +
-  * cd PVRTexLib +
-  * mkdir Linux_x86_32 +
-  * put the .a file there (libPVRTexLib.a) +
-  * cd back to RTPack +
-  * cmake -f CMakeLists.txt +
-  * make +
-There should be a RTPack executable file +
