What you'll want to download

You may... For now, evidence needs GTK2. We intend to have evidence build against EWL (enlightenment widget library) alternatively as it becomes available.

Getting evidence from CVS

The CVS stores the version the developers work on. The version in CVS will contain the latest and greatest features, but also the latest mistakes. Use at your discretion.

To get the latest version, first log into CVS using cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/evidence login -- just press Enter or Return when it asks for a password. Then enter cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/evidence co evidence to download ("check out" in CVS-speak) the actual files. This will take a while, but the cvs program should keep you updated on its progress.

Build the binaries.

Getting a source distribution

Getting a binary distribution

  1. Get the binaries of evidence, and of all libraries marked "required:" download from SourceForge
  2. Install the packages (dpkg -i evidence.deb, rpm -i evidence.rpm, ...).
  3. Run evidence. Type rehash first to tell your shell that there is a new kid on the block. If your shell does not understand the rehash command, open a new one.
  4. Some meta-data providers (plugins that provide extra info on MP3, images, ...) will only be available when the supporting libraries they need are present; you may wish to install those libraries at some point.
  5. Customize evidence, if you wish.
