Source releases

The latest release of Mebitag is always available from Sourceforge. There are three components in Mebitag: the MebiEdit and MebiView graphical programs and the libmebi library. To use either of the graphical programs you must have libmebi installed, as well as libxml2, GTK+ 2.0 and GLib 2.0 which come with almost every GNU/Linux distribution. If you just want to use libmebi you only need libxml2 and GLib installed.

Currently the only automated way to compile Mebitag is to compile all three components. To do this you will need the GTK+, GLib and libxml2 headers. On most distributions these must be downloaded separately. On Debian/Ubuntu the packages are: libxml2-dev and libgtk2.0-dev. On Redhat/Fedora the packages are: libxml2-devel and gtk2-devel. Once these are installed, compile Mebitag in a terminal by running:

tar -xf mebitag-0.4.tar.gz
cd mebitag-0.4
sudo make install
