The software requirements for build and runtime are listed as follows:



Latest release

2016-09-14 - End of Summer'16 release.

Previous and older releases, including the change log, are also available here. You may also check out from the latest bleeding edge development source tree, using Git.

You can browse all files available for download, including binary packages, at QXGEdit Files on SourceForge.net.


The installation procedure follows the standard for source distributions. In the extracted source directory, just do:

./configure [--prefix=prefix]

and optionally as root:

make install

This procedure will end installing the following couple of files:

Just launch prefix/bin/qxgedit and you're off (hopefully). Note that the default installation path prefix is /usr/local.


QXGEdit holds its settings and configuration state per user, in a file located as $HOME/.config/rncbc.org/QXGEdit.conf. Normally, there's no need to edit this file, as it is recreated and rewritten everytime qxgedit is run.


Plenty still, although this may be considered beta software already. ;)


QXGEdit is open source free software. For bug reports, feature requests, discussion forums, mailling lists, or any other matter related to the development of this piece of software, please use the Sourceforge project page.
