On Windows, using the official Windows installation program is recommended. If you want to build your own installer, see Step three: Linux + Windows.
Install on OSX¶
On OSX, using the official OSX installation DMG is recommended. See OSX Notes
If you want to build your own installer, see Step four: OSX.
On *nix-based systems (but not OSX), run the following to install:
$ make # make install
The “make” step is optional and only compiles the modules and translations.
There is also an install_no_locale target if you wish to install without translations.
Environment variables that affect “make install”:
- The lib directory to be appended to PREFIX. Default: /lib
The installation prefix. Default: /usr/local Note: If this default is changed, you may need to set the XDG_DATA_DIRSenvironment variable to include the changed path. See .
The directory to install system-wide config files in, following xdg spec. Default: /etc/xdg Note: If this default is changed, you may need to set the XDG_CONFIG_DIRSenvironment variable to include the changed path. See .
- Destination directory to put the file structure under. Mainly of use for
Default: not set (/)
- Default arguments that the ‘exaile’ launcher script (installed to $PREFIX/bin/exaile) will pass to exaile on startup
