Installation Guide

Before you can install Sloth, make sure that you have all the prerequisites installed.


Sloth is implemented in Python and PyQt4, so it needs both. It further depends on either PIL or okapy for image loading.

To use okapy, make sure to make its modules known to python, e.g. add <okapibuild>/python/ to the PYTHONPATH environment variable:

export PYTHONPATH=<okapibuild>/python/:$PYTHONPATH

For compiling the docs, Python Sphinx is needed.

Installing Sloth

Run with administrator priviledges:

python install
