1 Installing Mavric
2 -----------------
3
4 Mavric itself is easy to install, but it requires some additional
5 software and libraries. These are:
6
7 * python 1.5.2 or higher (http://www.python.org)
8
9 * PIL, the python imaging library (for PostScript tree printing)
10
11 * gnome-python (http://www.daa.com.au/~james/pygtk)
12
13 * Note: If you don't want to install the full GNOME desktop
14 environment, see http://www.baypiggies.org/10mintig.html for some
15 instructions on installing the minimal set of packages needed for
16 gnome-python (i.e., just gnome-libs and its dependencies.)
17
18 To install:
19
20 Mavric uses the python Distutils package. Assuming the distribution
21 file Mavric-X.X.tar.gz:
22
23 bash$ tar xvfz Mavric-X.X.tar.gz && rm Mavric-X.X.tar.gz
24
25 bash$ cd Mavric-X.X
26
27 bash$ ./setup.py install
28
29 On my system (RH Linux 6.1) this byte-compiles and places the Mavric
30 package in /usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages. If you don't have root
31 access and want to install Mavric elsewhere, you could do, e.g.:
32
33 bash$ ./setup.py install --install-site-lib=$HOME/.python
34
35 where the directory $HOME/.python is in your PYTHONPATH environment
36 variable.
37
38 The executable script 'mavric', located in the bin/ subdirectory of
39 the source distribution, should be copied somewhere in your PATH,
40 e.g. /usr/local/bin, $HOME/bin, etc.

42 See the file README for hints on using mavric.
