It is often reported that users find GNUstep difficult to install. This may be a result of lacking information.

Generic installation instructions

To install a standard configuration you need only 3 steps:

  1. Download the package "GNUstep Startup" (i. e. the current stable version gnustep-startup-0.18.3.tar.bz) from the download page (http://wwwmain.gnustep.org/resources/downloads.php). Unpack it into a directory of your choice.
  2. cd into that directory. To build and install, type: sudo ./InstallGNUstep
  3. add the following line to your ~/.bashrc: . /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh

This is all.

GNUstep Applications and additional libs can be installed via sudo make install.

Platform specific installation information

For information on how to install Dependencies or even GNUstep itself with your native packaging system, or about installation on exotic systems (like Windows), see Platform compatibility!
