2. Installation

2.1 How to obtain TuxCards

Download it from the TuxCards - WebPage. There, several versions can be found:
    • rpm package,
    • an uncompiled tar.gz, and
    • a precompiled binary for SuSE-Linux.

2.2 Requirements

For TuxCards V0.5, V0.5.1, V0.6beta: If the binary version should be installed, you only need to have the QT-Libraries 2.0. This means the package qtlib2.0 should also be installed, if not already.

For an own compilation qtdevel2 is needed as well. Look for those packages at or install it with you distribution.

For TuxCards V0.7: You definitly do need at least qt2.2, because I have written an on iconselector basing on the QIconView-Object which was introduced in qt2.2.

TuxCards has been successfully tested with Linux SuSE 6.2 (with qt2.0), SuSE 6.3, SuSE 6.4, SuSE 7.0, SuSE 7.2; as well as Caldera 2.2, Caldera 2.3, Debian (with qt2.3) and several RedHat-Systems.

2.3 Compilation and installation

In order to compile and install TuxCards on your system, type the following in the base directory of the TuxCards distribution:

% ./configure
% make
% make install

Since TuxCards uses autoconf you should have not trouble compiling it. Should you run into problems please report them to the the author at Alexander Theel
