5Prerequisites
6==========================================
7In order to run Orange Canvas - the visual programming front end of
8Orange - you will need to have Qt, PyQt installed. On Fedora Core 3
9these libraries can be installed by executing the following command:
10
11     yum groupinstall "KDE Software Development"
12
13
14Running Orange Canvas
15==========================================
16The system installation should create a shortcut to Orange Canvas, a
17script:
18
19/usr/bin/orange
20
21which is equivalent to executing the following command (the path might
22vary among Linux distributions):
23
24python /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/orange/OrangeCanvas/orngCanvas.pyw
25
26
27Installation Instructions
28==========================================
29Get the .tgz file. After unpacking go to the top-level
30directory.
31
32The binary distribution is prepared in Fedora Core 3. In case you need
33to recompile for your distribution of Linux, follow the instructions
34on how to compile from source. Sources are included in the binary
35distribution.
36
37Orange can be installed in two ways: locally in a user directory or in
38the system directories.
39
401. SYSTEM INSTALLATION
41   Using Python for which you wish to install Orange, execute as
42   root:
43
44     python setup.py install
45
46   Depending on the Linux distribution you are using you should get
47   something like this:
48
49   Orange files:
50   /usr/lib/python3.2/site-packages/orange
51
52   Path file to Orange used by Python:
53   /usr/lib/python3.2/site-packages/orange/orange.pth
54
55   Documentation, data sets, etc.:
56   /usr/share/doc/orange
57
58   Links to .so files:
59   /usr/lib/
60
61   Shortcut to Orange Canvas:
62   /usr/bin/orange
63
64
652. USER, LOCAL INSTALLATION
66
67   Using Python for which you wish to install Orange, execute as
68   normal user:
69
70     python setup.py install --orangepath=<target directory where orange directory should be created>
71
72   You should get the following structure:
73
74   Orange files:
75   <target dir>/orange/
76
77   Documentation, data sets, etc.:
78   <target dir>/doc/
79   
80   Path file to Orange used by Python:
81   orange.pth               
82
83   See the Distutils documentation for many command-line options as to
84   installation locations, etc.
85
86The setup.py script will hint you where to get the various prerequisites
87needed by Orange and Orange Canvas: Numeric, GSL, Qt, PyQt, PyQwt, etc.

90Building and Installing Orange from Source
91==========================================
92Using Python for which you wish to install Orange, execute:
93
94     python setup.py compile
95
96Then follow the Installation Instructions (see above).
97
98
99Uninstalling Orange
100==========================================
101Depending on the type of installation you should be root or normal
102user, execute:
103
104python <DOC installation directory>/setup.py uninstall
105
106<DOC installation directory> is usually /usr/share/doc/orange, but
107might be different depending on your Linux distribution.
108
109This will remove Orange, Orange Canvas, Orange documentation and links to
110Orange libraries.
