Compile yourself

See the downloads page to get a tarball of Geany-Plugins and unpack it. (tar xzf tarball.tar.gz or tar xjf tarball.tar.bz2). Then use either waf or autotools to compile and install it. Note you will need to have different compile tools (such as gcc) and libraries (e.g. CTPL for GeanyGenDoc) installed.


This is the way to build Geany-Plugins which you may know better, because it's more widely used. The possibility to use autotools to compile and install Geany-Plugins is provided for compatibility reasons, if you do not have installed python or there is any other reason which prevents you from using waf
For compiling Geany-Plugins with autotools, do the following:

make install

You can get more detailed information about possibilities by running

./configure --help
