    I’d really like to contribute to cherrytree but I haven’t found any instructions on building the source. I’d like to help out fixing some bugs and testing so need to be able to build.

    I’m running debian stable and have a fork of the cherrytree git repo so I’m ready to help.



    It is some time since I experimented with building CherryTree in Ubuntu.

    I placed the source in ~/cherrytree-0.38.2

    Then open to read instructions ..

    #!/usr/bin/env python
    # for linux install: "python install --prefix=/usr -f"
    # for windows exe creation: "python py2exe"

    Use an IDE such as Spyder2 to run the command or in gnome-terminal.



    Right I took a look at but I didn’t want to _install_ a new cherrytree – just build it and manually run the newly built binary. Is there a way to do that or is the expectation that people build and install in one step (with install) to test changes?

    I’ve built some files (looks like one for each language). Is there a way to run this Or do I really need to run with install to _install_ the new version?
