To install from source, you will have to install the base development packages: autoconf, automake, libtool, pkg-tools, make, gcc.
Siril is developed with Arch Linux, which has all latest packages versions, and Linux Mint 16, a slightly old distribution. This allows us to verify a large range of package versions.
Installing on Debian
Debian 6 doesn't have GTK+ version 3, so you need at least version 7, codename Wheezy. Siril now uses a GTK+ 3.6 while Wheezy only has the 3.4. For a desktop system, the next stable is probably the better choice, called Debian testing, currently version 8 with codename Jessie. We maintain an official debian package which is in the debian unstable repository. It will also be available in Jessie and on other debian-based systems soon. Until then, or if you want to build the latest version from source, use the procedure below.
First, you will need those packages to have a proper build system:
autoconf automake make gcc libtool pkg-config
Then you can generate the configure script:
$ aclocal && autoconf && autoheader && automake --add-missing
And install mandatory dependencies:
libfftw3-dev libgsl0-dev libcfitsio3-dev libgtk-3-dev libconfig++-dev
Finally you can install optional dependencies you want:
libpng-dev libjpeg-dev libtiff5-dev libraw-dev, for film (AVI and others) support: libffms2-dev, and for image resizing in LRGB tool: libopencv-dev and g++.
Note that libtiff5 is incompatible with opencv in debian 7, in that case you need to install libtiff4 instead. And in debian 8, libjpeg8-dev has been replaced by libjpeg62-turbo-dev, which is also installed by libtiff5-dev.
And run the configure and make.
Installing on Ubuntu
A list of dependencies has been reported for Ubuntu 14.10, for building the executable from source. Use the following command to install all of them:
sudo apt-get -y install autoconf build-essential libgtk-3-dev fftw3-dev libgsl0-dev cfitsio-dev libconfig++-dev libtiff-dev libjpeg-dev libraw-dev libffms2-dev libopencv-dev
Then proceed with the normal procedure, and use sudo make install to install Siril.
Installing on Arch Linux
Installing on MacOS
SIRIL installation under Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).
Install XCode via the App Store (free software).
Install XQuartz via http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/ (free software)
Install the command line tools by typing in a Terminal window: xcode-select --install
Install the MacPorts software (free) : http://www.macports.org (Follow the installation instructions on this site.)
The following is done in a Terminal window. One should first install some libraries:
sudo port install automake
sudo port install autoconf
sudo port install gtk3
sudo port install gnome-icon-theme
sudo port install librsvg
sudo port install cfitsio
sudo port install fftw-3
sudo port install gsl
sudo port install libconfig
Also install some optional dependencies (recommanded) :
sudo port install libraw
sudo port install tiff
sudo port install jpeg [NB : at present this library does not seem to be correctly handled by SIRIL on Mac]
sudo port install libpng
sudo port install opencv
Install the ffms2 library which is not present in MacPorts. Download it here: https://github.com/FFMS/ffms2, in the ffms2 folder, type from the terminal:
sudo make install
Download the SIRIL sources:
In the siril/src folder, edit the Makefile.am file and suppress (two times) the string "-export-dynamic"
In the terminal go to the siril folder:
Generate the configure file by typing:
aclocal && autoconf && autoheader && automake --add-missing
Then run ./configure and make. To install Siril, use the usual:
sudo make install
Launch SIRIL :
