Install using packages from your distribution if available. Otherwise, see below for manual installation.

Manual installation


Build dependencies:

Installation is simple. Obtain the sources, then run:

$ python install

This will most likely require root, and will install Dantalian globally on the system. Otherwise, you can use virtualenv, or install it for the user:

$ python install --user

It is recommended to install the man pages as well. The man pages can be built like so:

$ cd doc
$ make man

The man pages can be found in doc/_build/man. How they are installed depends on your system. On Arch Linux, man pages are installed in /usr/share/man as gzipped archives, so you would do the following:

$ cd doc/_build/man
$ gzip ./*
# install ./* /usr/share/man/man1
