Installing from source

You can either download the source code manually (see below), or get it using Zero Install. To compile using Zero Install bring up the version selection dialog box:

$ 0launch --gui

Right-click on ROX-Filer and choose Compile... from the menu:

Compiling ROX-Filer

It will prompt you to download the source and some required headers for GTK. For more details, see 0compile GUI.

Downloading and compiling manually

Download these two archives (the links lead to a list of versions):

Extract the rox.tgz archive and run the ROX-Filer/AppRun script inside.
The filer will be compiled and then a filer window will open. Copy the ROX-Filer directory to either ~/Apps or /usr/local/apps (root password required).

$ tar xzf rox-2.7.1.tgz
$ cd rox-2.7.1
$ ROX-Filer/AppRun

Install the rest of the system as for Red Hat.
You'll need a compiler, and header files for all the libraries.
After installing, you might like to read the Getting Started Guide.
