- Source package: siril-0.9.4.tar.bz2
- Debian stable: 64 bits
- Debian testing: 64 bits
- Ubuntu 16.04 / Linux Mint 18.XX:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lock042/siril sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install siril
- For other GNU/Linux OSes, we are experimenting the AppImage application. AppImage packages are designed to run on all major Linux desktop distributions. Simply download the AppImage file, change the file permissions to make it executable and then run it by double-clicking on it or run it from the terminal. When the AppImage runs the first time it will offer to install a desktop file. If a desktop file is installed, then Siril will be added to the desktop menu: Download 64 bits version.
AppImage known problems: The package does not work on Linux Mint < 18. GTK icons are missing on fedora and arch-linux, but application is running. Please report other bugs you could find.
See the installation page for help on dependencies and compilation.
