Installing on Linux® and BSD™ platforms


Please read the INSTALL file of the Krusader sources, it contains all latest installation instructions.

-DQT_INCLUDES=/usr/share/qt5/include is the location of the Qt™ 5 includes

-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/ is the location where Krusader will be installed with the make command.

Another example is: -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PRFIX=/opt/krusader to install the compiled Krusader in an other directory to not overwrite the Krusader version installed by your package manager.


Please use sudo instead of su -c if you are using Ubuntu-based systems.

      $ tar -xzvf krusader-2.5.0.tar.gz
      $ cd krusader
      $ mkdir build
      $ cd build
      $ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/ -DQT_INCLUDES=/usr/share/qt5/include ..
      $ make
      $ su -c "make install"


      $ su -c "make uninstall"
