Installation

Installation From Source With the Assistant

BasKet includes a small script that will guide you trough the process of building and insalling BasKet.

Simply extract the basket archive.
Right click the file in Konqueror and choose "Extract Here" in the "Actions" or "Extract" submenu.

Open the newly created folder and press F4 to open a new Konsole window for this folder.

Then, type ./installer: the assistant will do everything and will even (re)start BasKet for you.

It usualy take several minutes. At the end, it will beek and ask you root password to install it (if you choosen the system wide installation).

If the process doesn't success or some library are missing or cannot be found, think to install *-dev or *-devel packages of your distribution: they contain library (X, QT, KDE...) sources needed to compil from sources.

Installation From Distribution Package

If you've got BasKet in the form of a package for your distribution, just open it, give the root password and voilą, BasKet is now available in your KMenu, waiting for you to launch it.

Else, the program willn't be installed at the right place. Then, compile it with make.

If configure or make doesn't success or some library are missing or cannot be found, think to install *-dev or *-devel packages of your distribution: they contain library (X, QT, KDE...) sources needed to compil from sources.
Now, BasKet is compiled. If you haven't root right, you can launch it for you with the command ./basket.

If you have root right, you can install BasKet for all users: run su to have root privileges (give it your root password) and so make install.

Execute BasKet

Start BasKet with the basket command (in Run command for example (Alt+F2), or in a console) or ./basket if you haven't installed it (in this case it willn't be restarted when you restart KDE).
