Linux/Unix Packages

Some GNU/Linux and Unix systems provide binary packages of Gwyddion. The download page of the project also tracks known packages and packaging efforts. For instance, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, openSuSE or FreeBSD offer Gwyddion packages. If your operating system provides such a package and it is recent enough, install it using the standard means of the operating system. Otherwise proceed with compilation from source code.

On Linux distributions using the RPM Package Manager, such as Fedora, openSuSE or Mandriva, you can also build a package yourself from the source code, as described below.
