OpenBoard is a cross-platform interactive whiteboard application intended for use in a classroom setting.

Overview

OpenBoard

OpenBoard is an open source cross-platform interactive white board application designed primarily for use in schools. It was originally forked from Open-Sankoré, which was itself based on Uniboard.

Supported platforms are Windows (7+), OS X (10.9+) and Linux (tested on Ubuntu 16.04).

Installing

Installers are available for Windows, OS X and Ubuntu on the wiki.

Building from source

First, obtain the third party libraries from the OpenBoard-ThirdParty repository, and build them (instructions are provided for each library).

Then, you may use the build (and packaging) scripts which are provided for all three platforms. These take care of compiling OpenBoard, including the translations (for OpenBoard and for Qt), stripping the debug symbols, creating the installers etc. Minor modification to those scripts may be necessary depending on your configuration, to set the correct Qt path for example.

Alternatively, you can easily build OpenBoard with qmake and make:

qmake OpenBoard.pro -spec linux-g++-64      # replace linux-g++-64 by macx or win32 for other platforms
make

Compilers used are gcc (Linux), clang (OS X) and MSVC 2010 (Windows). Make sure that your version of Qt matches this, as it is not possible e.g to build OpenBoard with clang if Qt was built with gcc.

Dependencies

The latest version (1.5) requires Qt 5.5. (While it has been shown to mostly work with Qt 5.2, we cannot guarantee compatibility with Qt versions other than 5.5.)

Qt 5.5 on Linux

Due to a shared library conflict within Qt 5 in some distributions / some Qt versions (the Multimedia and Webkit modules were built against different versions of gstreamer by default), a specific installation of Qt5.5 may be needed for all of OpenBoard's features to work correctly.

It can either be built from source, with the configure flag -gstreamer 1.0 (see here), or installed from Stephan Binner's PPAs on Ubuntu. In the latter case, simply add the repositories and install Qt 5.5.1 like so (example provided for Ubuntu 14.04, aka "Trusty"):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:beineri/opt-qt551-trusty
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qt-latest

Some distributions, such as Ubuntu 16.04, provide Qt 5.5.1 packages that work perfectly with OpenBoard, so you can simply install Qt from the official repository.

  • Possibility to run on a separate window

    Possibility to run on a separate window

    HI. I would like the openboard to be run on a separate (i.e. resizable) window. I have read the forum thread at https://openboard.ch/forum/viewtopic.php?t=931 and I think I disagree with the arguments there. I understand the "default" full screen mechanism (for unexperienced users), but an experienced user should be able to have one (or both windows) to be windowed. Nowadays, with the COVID19 emergency it is even more important: on the "control" screen with the online teaching we all do, it is important to have the control of the class (via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Meet or others) AND the editing of the board, while the other screen is used to show slides, the whiteboard etc. It would really make a hit if, at least, the editing window could be resizable. Thanks a lot!

    Desktop mode broken on Mutter

    On the gnome desktop, the desktop mode is not working properly.

    -The overlay is not always in the front, clicking on another window -Drawing does nothing, until you switch to the keyboard or mouse in the panel. At this moment, the mask is redrawn and the drawn lines show up.

    I already made a fix for both issues, I will make a pull request shortly with the details.

    With these changes normal compilation of OpenBoard won't change anything. But you can choose, when running "qmake", to create an OpenBoard executable which will run in its own window, instead of fullscreen. I've tested in Linux, Windows and macOS. http://webdiis.unizar.es/u/spd/openboard/

  • [SOLVED] Installing OpenBoard v1.5.4 on Ubuntu 18.04+

    [SOLVED] Installing OpenBoard v1.5.4 on Ubuntu 18.04+

    UPDATE: For Ubuntu 20.04+, OpenBoard v1.6.1 (or latter) is recommended.

    OpenBoard v1.5.4 was released for Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) and some dependencies are no longer present on Ubuntu 18.04+, namely libavcodec-ffmpeg56. However, adding temporarily a couple of Xenial's repositories does the trick. Doing so shouldn't break your system since 18.04+ have up to date packages and those missing from Xenial have different naming (packages and files). This is however no warranty.

    Tested on: 18.04 (Bionic Beaver), 19.10 (Eoan Ermine), 20.04 (Focal Fossa, ##issuecomment-636052149).

    1. Upgrade the system.
    2. Add Xenial repositories.
    3. Update the package database.
    4. Download and install OpenBoard v1.5.4.
    5. Fix broken dependencies.
    6. Remove Xenial repositories.
    7. Update the package database (just in case).
    sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
    echo -e "# Xenial repositories to satisfy OpenBoard v1.5.4 dependencies\n"\
    "deb http://es.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial main universe\n"\
    "deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security main universe"\
    | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openboard-xenial.list
    sudo apt update
    wget https://github.com/OpenBoard-org/OpenBoard/releases/download/v1.5.4/openboard_ubuntu_16.04_1.5.4_amd64.deb

  • 2019/2020 Roadmap

    2019/2020 Roadmap

    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to give you a small update on the current status of OpenBoard's development. Recently, we were working at porting OpenBoard to qt 5.9, on the three supported platforms, with qtwebkit as a third dependency.

    Porting OpenBoard to Qt 5.9 implied some good news :

    • Because Qt 5.9 apps can be built with msvc 2017 and mscv 2017 supports C++11, we can now use C++11 based libraries on the three platforms, so ffmpeg can now be used on Windows too
    • OpenBoard can now be built in 64bit on Windows
    • qtwebkit latest builds provide a way more up-to-date support around web-oriented technologies (WebGL, HTML5, CSS features, etc)

    These changes are really important, but it is not a small task. While making OpenBoard work with Qt5.9 fixed some issues, it created new ones. At the same time, it has been decided that Ubuntu 20.04 will be deployed in our Linux machines (in Geneva schools), so OpenBoard will have to support it.

    Because of the last point, the team and I think that it became more interesting to port OpenBoard directly to the latest version of Qt (5.12 or 5.13).

    We hope to find the time to replace xpdf by libpoppler (on the three platforms) in the same time.

    In parallel, we are preparing the last version that will be based on Qt5.5, OpenBoard 1.5.4. This release will only contain bugfixes (some by the community!) and small features, but will improve the user experience quite a bit.

    We know that a lot of features (and some really good ideas) are requested, and we apologize for not being able to satisfy everyone's desire, but as you may read so (too?) many times, we have very limited resources.

    Thank you, a lot, for the support you send us (from all around the world) and the feedback you take time to give.

  • Shortcut configuration

    Shortcut configuration

    This pull request implements a flexible configuration of shortcuts for actions triggered by keyboard, special mouse buttons or tablet stylus buttons. It is still draft, as intensive testing is still needed. Here a description of what was added or changed:

    • The preferences have a new Shortcut tab showing a list of actions and associated shortcuts.
    • The actions are grouped. Grouping is hard-coded in the UBShortcutManager and can be extended there.
    • The list can be filtered by typing any part of a description or shortcut.
    • When an action is selected, the shortcuts for that action can be edited by "recording". This means, that you press the "Record" button and then any key combination, mouse button and/or stylus button you want to assign to that action. When finished, press "Accept" or "Abort". When accepted, the shortcut(s) are assigned to that action.
    • You can reset the shortcuts to the application defaults using the "Reset" button.
    • All mouse buttons except left and right and all stylus buttons can be used to trigger actions.
    • When you type a conflicting shortcut, you will be warned and the offending entry is shown in the table.
    • There is a checkbox to allow all shortcuts which are combinations using the Ctrl key also to be triggered without pressing Ctrl. If the Alt key is specified in a shortcut, this is unaffected by this checkbox.
    • The configured state is persisted in the user settings.
    • All shortcuts can also be triggered when the owning palette is not shown. I.e. it is no longer necessary to display the stylus palette in order to use Ctrl+I, Ctrl+E etc.

    The pull request especially needs intensive testing on Windows and Mac, as I'm developing on Linux and do not have other platforms available for testing. Any feedback is highly appreciated!

    My branch is based on the latest release candidate https://github.com/OpenBoard-org/OpenBoard/releases/tag/v1.6.1rc-0309, so all features and bug fixes of that release are also included.

  • chore: reorganize linux build

    chore: reorganize linux build

    This pull request aims to reorganize the Linux builds to enable a more FHS conformant layout, while keeping the option to create a package structure very close to the currently released official packages. Builds for Windows and OS X should not be affected.

    To enable this, the project file uses the following environment variables to control file system layout:

    | Variable | Default | Remark | | --- | --- | --- | | PREFIX | /usr | Common prefix for the install location | | SYS_PREFIX | $PREFIX | Prefix for system files: binaries, desktop file, icons and mime type specification | | APP_PREFIX | $PREFIX/share/openboard | Prefix for the application data files: default settings, library, languages, fonts. |

    The default build now creates a largely FHS conformant file system layout. The binary goes to /usr/bin, the application files are in /usr/share/openboard, desktop file in /usr/share/applications, icons in /usr/share/icons and mime specification in /usr/share/mime.

    By setting APP_PREFIX=/opt/openboard a layout is created, which is quite similar to the current package layout. Differences are:

    • /usr/bin/openboard is not a symlink, but the actual executable.
    • Icons and mime specification are installed in the standard system locations.

    The latter makes postinstand prerm scripts obsolete, as the package installer automatically registers these files and updates the system databases.

    The project file now installs all necessary components including fonts, files in /etc, desktop file, icons, mime specification in their respective directories, making it unnecessary to copy these things to the package in the package.sh script. The installation directory now contains everything what is needed to create a valid package.

    Locating libraries now makes use of the pkg-config infrastructure, so that no absolute paths are necessary in the project file. The obsolete UB_THIRDPARTY_INTERACTIVE was removed.

    The desktop file is now part of the repository. Icon files and mime specification files start with a ch.openboard prefix, which serves as app id for Flatpack builds. A scalable SVG icon is now also used for the application.

    The build.sh script has only minor modification. For the package.sh script however more changes have been necessary.

    • It is no longer necessary to run this script as root, so the corresponding check was removed.
    • As the created installation directory contains all necessary files, it is no longer necessary to copy them.
    • It is no longer necessary to create a desktop file and a postinst script.

    The pull request also contains a small improvement: When the onboard on-screen keyboard is not installed, the corresponding option is forced to use the built-in keyboard. To show and hide the system onboard on-screen keyboard, the appropriate DBus messages are used instead of starting and killing the onboard process each time. These will also automatically startup onboard once, if it is not running. See https://develop.kde.org/docs/use/d-bus/dbus_autostart_services/ for description of this mechanism.

    Many ideas are based on the work of @JBBgameich - thanks for this and also for the discussion at https://github.com/letsfindaway/OpenBoard/issues/96. I hope that this PR is also a big step forward for Issue #638. It should also ease community builds.

    Version 1.6.3

    ⚠️ Wrong Mac Version ⚠️

    The mac versions that had been uploaded were the wrong ones and thus have been deleted. If you are one of the few that downloaded it, you may experience some issues with documents saving, and wrong configuration parameters. Please download the 1.6.2 until a proper version of 1.6.3 is re-uplaoded.

    Bug fixes

    • Fixed an issue where using the ruler would make drawing impossible, thanks to @vivianecs and @letsfindaway

    Known Issues

    • When Control screen is not the first screen on the left, main menu will not appear where it should. It is due to a Qt bug (cf. https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-84462 for more details)
    • With OpenBoard no longer able to be launched multiple times, double-clicking on an ubz file while OpenBoard is open won't open it.

    Linux

    • In Desktop Mode, Gnome Dock should be set to bottom position to workaround the issue with the Openboard left palette not beeing usable from above it (cf. https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-81341 for more details).

    MacOS

    • To make a video stop playing immediately after drag'n'drop, we had to stop doing the "play then pause" operation we usually do to load the first frame. This makes the player object not resizing to the size the video will occupy after clicking "play"

    Version 1.6.2

    New Features

    • Added a progression bar at OpenBoard's launch.
    • Better handling of PDF at export :
      • Restored complete support of PDF (1.0 to 1.4 versions) at export and permitted partial support of versions above (1.5 to 1.7) : a bug introduced in 1.5.2 was preventing the use of this method for versions 1.0 to 1.4. Also, previously, exported PDF pages were flattened as high resolution images, if the initial version of the PDF was > 1.4 or if an error occured during export.
      • exported PDFs are now much lighter, and text in the exported PDF is searchable again.
      • if an error occurs during the export, previous method (flattened images of each page) is used.
    • Added several messages to notify the users of what's happening during long operations
    • It is now possible to double-click on an OpenBoard document (.ubz) to launch OpenBoard and open the document directly, on every officially supported platform
    • Doubled the size of the arrows in Desktop Mode, making it easier to click on them with a stylus, thanks to @temaps
    • Updated Russian translations of GraphMe, thanks to @temaps
    • Updated Polish translations, thanks to @marcin-serwin
    • Updated Hungarian translations, thanks to @ovari

    ℹ️ Any ETA for an official release of OpenBoard 1.6.1 ? ℹ️

    A lot of improvements have been made since the last published pre-release. The major issues that were preventing us to go further have been fixed. Tests are being made and if everything goes well, the final release should be deployed in the next two months.

    ℹ️ Can I use this release in my classes ? ℹ️

    We are currently really satisfied with this release, so you can probably use it, but it remains a release candidate, some translations might miss, and some unknown issues may exist.

  • v1.6.1a-1102(Nov 16, 2020)

    Version 1.6.1a-1102

    ℹ️ Any ETA for an official release of OpenBoard 1.6 ? ℹ️

    The migration of OpenBoard to latest Qt releases is still in process. Despite a pretty robust version on Ubuntu and Windows, we still encounter some issues on OSX and are trying to improve the way we solve them. Meanwhile, we had to lock a version for Ubuntu as our schools were starting the year 2020/2021 on Ubuntu 20.04, so we internally deployed a 1.6 version.

    To restore some coherency and clarity in the naming of OpenBoard, we are now working on a 1.6.1 version, that will be released when we are satisfied of the behavior of the application on each officially supported OS.

    ℹ️ Can I use this release in my classes ? ℹ️

    We are currently really satisfied with the Ubuntu release, so you can probably use it, but it remains an alpha release, some translations might miss, and some unknown issues may exist. Some further tests on Windows are needed, that I hope will confirm the same feeling on this platform. The OSX version is working for 10.13 and 10.14, but contains an issue with the Desktop Mode that is preventing us from releasing it officially. Catalina is, at this time, not officially supported (but planned).

    • reverted a workaround as it provoked a regression in MultiScreen Mode

    Known Issues

    Linux

It is possible to have a screenshot of the system desktop to appear in the transparent scene of the desktop mode, if not in MultiScreen Mode, making background interactions impossible for anything behind it. This strange behavior seems to be caused by this qt method => https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qwidget.html#showFullScreen).

  • v1.5.0(Nov 29, 2018)

    Version 1.5.0

    New features

    A whole new Document mode

    A major overhaul of the Document mode has been carried out.

    Documents tree structure

    You can now create complex tree structures to organize your work. The "Untitled Documents" folder is no longer relevant and, if exists from a previous installation, can be deleted. You can adjust the size of the documents tree area by playing with the vertical splitter between it and the thumbnails area.

    Sortable documents

    Documents can be sorted, using the "Sort Kind" drop down list and the "Sort Order" icon beside, by creation date, modification date, or alphabetical order. A second column displays the date of creation or modification.

    Icons on Folders and Documents

    New icons have been added to the document tree structure to improve readability and help navigation.

    Export/Import a folder

    You can now export an entire folder (including the "My Documents" folder), using the new option "Export to OpenBoard UBX" in the Export menu. The exported hierarchy is preserved at import.

    Mac Certification

    OpenBoard for macOS is now signed, allowing it to be recognized by Gatekeeper.

    New Translations

    Translations for Ukrainian and Hungarian has been started and added to the supported languages.

    Widgets

    A new version of the GraphMe widget has been integrated.

    Bug fixes

    • It was no longer possible to freely resize the mask
    • The tab on the library panel could disappear in some cases

    Known issues

    • This redesign of the Documents mode was a complex development and several small cosmetic bugs may still remain, including focus issues
    • Folders in the trash of your OpenBoard 1.4 installation are renamed _Trash:folder_name in the 1.5 version and are found in My Documents. They can be put in the Trash.

  • v1.4.0(Mar 22, 2018)

    New features

    Simplified drawing

    An important work has been done on strokes to reduce their complexity and give more fluidity to drawing. The weight of new OpenBoard documents is indeed greatly reduced

    Simplified access to the objects of the library

    The detailed view has been deleted for apps, interactivities, images, sounds and videos. You can simply drag and drop these elements from the library tab. To set as background an image, it is now done via the image menu after it has been dropped to the page.

    Size of the background grid

    You can now adjust it in the background window, with the option of a lined background. This new parameter can be set for each page of a document. A new page is set with the background settings of the current page. A new button on the background window resets the grid size to its default value. When OpenBoard starts, the size is initialized to represent approximately 1cm on the screen. Indeed, the size of the grid is preserved while importing a document on another computer. Geometry tools have been adjusted to fit this initialization.

    Background grid tab on preferences

    You can now choose the color of the grid and the its opacity on dark and light backgrounds. The grid opacity is ignored if the zoom is lower than ~0.7.

    Thumbnails tab drag and drop

    Thumbnails can be reordered using the pen/mouse, by drag and drop. The "move up page" and "move down page" icons have been retired. The "remove page" and "duplicate page" icons' size was increased by a factor of 2.

    Podcast module on Linux (screen recording)

    The screen recording is finally available on Linux. ffmpeg is used for video encoding, with the MP4 format (h264/AAC).

    Pen tool circle preview

    Above a certain size (set in preferences), a circle preview appears.

    Software update option

    A new parameter in the configuration file allows to hide the "check for software update" option in the OpenBoard menu.

    Planète-Sankore widgets

    Because planete-sankore.org is down, the research applications (image, audio, video and flash medias) had to be deleted.

    Clock Widget

    The Clock widget used in Open-Sankore has been added to the library.

    Bug fixes

    • The state of the zoom was persisted on each page, but not the state of the position of the view. Now both are.
    • The "visible on extended screen" property was not correctly persisted.
    • Several corrections have been added to improve their behavior on object groups.
    • Text box : resizing, using the left handle, was causing unexpected text box moving
    • Text box : you could lose the cursor by dragging an image or a shape on a text box.
    • Text box : OpenBoard could crash, while trying to select a text box by its border with the text tool selected.
    • OpenBoard could crash when erasing part of a stroke, drawn with the compass, and the center cross, simultaneously.
    • You could lose data if you had only one document on the main directory.

    Known Issues

    Podcast module on Linux

    • the module's performance depends on its configuration, so please don't use too high resolutions on slow devices,
    • last images of a record can not be added to the video,
    • recording is slow on desktop mode.

    Podcast module on Mac

    • audio sometimes loops,
    • audio and video can be unsynchronized if the user stops his annotations.

    Internal web navigator

    Many errors, mainly on secured sites (https). The internal web navigator may be removed on a future release of OpenBoard.

    Data loss

    Most issues concerning data loss have been resolved. However, in some cases (network context, slow computers), some features related to the data saving may not behave as expected. For example, it is possible for the duplication of a page to be done before the save of the duplicated page by the thread which has to perform this save. If so, you have to delete the new page and retry the duplication on the original page.

    (*) This allows the user to change the colour or opacity of the background grid, for example if it isn't sufficiently visible on a low-contrast display or projector. The parameters can be found in the Board category and are named CrossColorDarkBackground and CrossColorLightBackground for the colour of the background grid on dark and light backgrounds, respectively. The possible values for these parameters are strings respecting any of the following formats:

    • #RGB
    • #RRGGBB
    • #AARRGGBB
    • #RRRGGGBBB
    • #RRRRGGGGBBBB
    • SVG colour keywords, as defined by W3C

    Where A = alpha (transparency); R = red; G = green; B = blue, in hexadecimal values.

    The default values are:

    CrossColorDarkBackground=#C82C2C2C
    CrossColorLightBackground=#A5E1FF

  • v1.3.4(Sep 19, 2016)

    This release fixes various bugs, some which appeared in v1.3.3, and some of which have been around for a while.

    Changes

    • OS X: fixed desktop drop shadow bug: when switching from desktop mode to board mode and back, shadows were drawn behind annotations; these persisted even if the annotation was erased
    • Windows: Updated bundled Visual C++ runtime library; fixed installer so that the library installation would be silent (no more dialog box appearing)
    • Linux: fixed detection of "cloned" multi-monitor setups to avoid multi-screen mode being activated in this configuration. [Note: some problems remain with multi-monitor setups on some Linux versions; see Known Issues]
    • Text items: text can no longer be selected or edited if the text item is marked as non-editable through its menu
    • Text items: on page load, text items no longer take keyboard focus
    • Library pane: fixed moving of items (upon moving an item to a folder, the item would not immediately disappear from its current location)
    • Library pane: fixed nested folder issue in breadcrumbs trail (two folders that were at the same path and whose names started with the same characters were considered by the breadcrumbs trail to be nested)
    • Document view: fixed folder names not being saved after renaming them
    • Fixed audio item saving (v1.3.3 bug): documents containing an audio item were saved incorrectly, making the audio unplayable upon page load
    • Desktop mode: eraser and marker preview circles now disappear when the cursor hovers over the left or right-hand toolbars, as in board mode

    Known issues

    On Ubuntu 14.04, some desktop environments cause problems in extended desktop mode. Specifically, on MATE, multi-screen mode is currently broken, with both OpenBoard windows (control and display views) appearing on the same display. On KDE, swapping the control and display views via the preferences menu can cause both windows to appear on the same display, but this can be solved by turning multi-screen mode off and on again, or by restarting OpenBoard.

  • v1.3.3(Jun 27, 2016)

    Bug fixes related mostly to import and export of documents.

    Importing .UBZ's created on another computer or another version of OpenBoard and which contained a PDF item in the background sometimes led to incorrect scaling of the PDF. Moreover, exporting a document containing a PDF item to PDF often resulted in the PDF item being badly positioned or scaled. All of this should now be fixed, making it much easier to work with documents across different computers.
