Gpredict Download Info

Gpredict is available in most Linux distributions, as well as MacPorts and Homebrew. Please check your distribution to see whether there are up to date packages.

For Debian-based systems we have a set of i386, amd64, armhf and arm64 packages in our PPA.

Source code

The latest source package can be downloaded from either GitHub or SourceForge.

Unpack the source package with:

     tar -xvfz gpredict-x.y.z.tar.bz2

Change to the gpredict-x.y.z directory and build gpredict:

     ./configure
     make
     make install

The last step usually requires you to become root, otherwise you may not have the required permissions to install gpredict. If you can not or do not want to install gpredict as root, you can install gpredict into a custom directory by adding --prefix=/somedir to the ./configure step.

If the configure step fails with an error, examine the output. It will usually tell you which package or libraries you needin order to build gpredict. Please note, the you also need the so-called development packages. In many GNU/Linux systems you can just install the GNOME Development stuff, but I would recommend to just install everything if you can (except if you are running Debian ;-).

The network support (automatic TLE update) requires cURL and libcurl. It is available for all Linux distribution that I know of.

If you encounter any show-stoppers, feel free to ask for help, see User Support.
