You may download arrangeit v0.3alpha either in the form of a binary distribution package (pick your platform and Python version from the project’s releases page on Github) or as a source package distribution.
Minimum requirements for Python is version 3.5.
For now, only Debian/Ubuntu binary releases for Python 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 can be downloaded from the releases page.
Download binaries of your choice and place them in a temporary directory. Install arrangeit by typing the following commands in terminal:
$ sudo apt-get install python3-pil.imagetk python3-xlib $ cd tmp_directory $ sudo dpkg -i python3-pynput_1.4.2_all.deb $ sudo dpkg -i arrangeit_0.3alpha_all.deb
Run the executable with:
If you want, you may uninstall the software with:
$ sudo apt-get purge arrangeit $ sudo apt-get autoremove --purge
Also, if you’ve saved some data or changed some settings from the options dialog, then you may delete every trace of that by removing the data directory:
$ rm -rf ~/.local/share/arrangeit
Use the following commands in Ubuntu to prepare and run arrangeit:
# install requirements $ sudo apt-get install python3-dev git gcc \ libgirepository1.0-dev libcairo2-dev pkg-config gir1.2-gtk-3.0 # change current directory to the one where you keep your projects $ cd ~/projects # clone arrangeit repository (or you may download it as a compressed directory) $ git clone https://github.com/ipaleka/arrangeit.git # create directory for the virtual environments if you don't have it already $ mkdir venvs # create virtual environment for arrangeit $ python3 -m venv venvs/arrangeit # activate newly created virtual environment $ source venvs/arrangeit # install Python dependencies (arrangeit) $ cd arrangeit (arrangeit) $ python -m pip install -r requirements/linux.txt # run arrangeit (arrangeit) $ python -m arrangeit
Provided binary release downloaded from the releases page is in the form of a compressed directory.
Extract it in a directory of your choice and run the
by clicking it. You may also, of course, create a shortcut to that executable and
place it on the desktop or in some other place of choice.
No runtime files will be placed outside that directory during a run. If you’ve
changed some settings or saved the data in the options dialog, then your
configuration files would be saved in
arrangeit directory under your user’s
If you want to delete every trace of arrangeit software, then you should delete
that directory (typically
c:\Users\yourusername\arrangeit) and the directory
where you extracted the binary distribution.
You should install Python 3 first in order to run arrangeit from the source in MS Windows.
You should take the following steps in order to prepare and run arrangeit from source distribution in MS Windows:
:: change current directory to the one where you keep your projects cd projects :: create directory for the virtual environments if you don't have it already mkdir venvs :: create virtual environment for arrangeit python -m venv venvs\arrangeit :: activate newly created virtual environment with venvs\arrangeit\Scripts\activate.bat :: enter the extracted source distribution directory (arrangeit) cd arrangeit :: install Python dependencies (arrangeit) python -m pip install -r requirements/windows.txt :: run arrangeit (arrangeit) python -m arrangeit
