SeedKit Install Instructions

Info:Its assumed you have some basic knowledge about using a Command Line Interface and pulling from git since there are no Packages available as of the time being.


SeedKit depends on gtk3 >= 3.0, webkit-gtk >= 1.4 and seed >= 3.0. The two latter should be compiled against gtk+ 3.0. Yeah I am looking at you Ubuntu. For those poor souls, the Gnome 3 PPA provide quite recent versions.

If your distro of choice provide those, just install the development packages (-devel or -dev) matching them. Otherwise, you'll have to build them directly or using jhbuild.

For fedora 15+: sudo yum install seed-devel gtk3-devel webkitgtk3-devel

Getting the bits

SeedKit provides two separated modules, that you need to checkout until next release

  • libseedkit provides an embeddable widget
    • git clone git://
  • seedkit-viewer, a simple 'hybrid' application running environnement. It obviously depends on libseedkit
    • git clone git://

After getting those, just cd in each directory and issue the following commands: ./ make sudo make install

Hopefully, that should be it !

Update your SharedObjects Path

You MIGHT have to edit your, to do so run:

sudo gedit /etc/

put include /usr/local/lib as the last line in the file (if you don't have a file just create an empty file in /etc and name it Save the file and run ldconfig from the Terminal, now you should be setup for running SeedKit Apps.

Start experimenting
