TreeLine Installation

Linux

Extract the source files from the treeline tar file, then change to the TreeLine directory in a terminal. For a basic installation, simply execute the following command as root: python install.py

To see all install options, use: python install.py -h

To install TreeLine with a different prefix (the default is /usr/local), use: python install.py -p /prefix/path

To install language translations for TreeLine, download the "treeline-i18n-..." tar file that matches the version number of the main TreeLine file (ignore the letter suffix on the translation version number). To install the program and translation files simultaneously, extract the translation file from the same directory where the main treeline tar file was extracted and run the install command as described above. If TreeLine is already installed, extract the translation file to any directory and run the translation's install command as described above.

Windows

Simply execute the downloaded installation file (treeline-x.x.x-install.exe). It will install the program with its libraries and optionally create file associations and shortcuts.

To use TreeLine's spell checker, an external program (aspell or ispell) must be installed (see the System Requirements section).

To install language translations for TreeLine, download the "treeline-i18n-..." exe file that matches the version number of the main TreeLine file (ignore the letter suffix on the translation version number). To install the translation files, simply execute the translation file.

If you wish to modify the source code or write your own PyQt programs for Windows, do not use the above procedure. Instead, you need to install binaries for Python and PyQt. Then, extract the source code files from the Linux version (treeline tar file) to a directory of your choice and execute the treeline.py file.
