Building and Installing gexiv2

To build the current version of gexiv2, you will first need to install libexiv2 version 0.26 or better, including the header files and other files needed for building programs that use this library.

There are two ways to get the gexiv2 source code:

  • Download a source tarball of the latest stable release series: gexiv2

  • For the latest code, check out the source from our Git server:

$ git clone

Note that in order to build from master, you’ll need to update your exiv2 installation to version 0.26 or later.

To build, run the following commands:

$ meson build
$ ninja -C build
$ sudo ninja -C build install

For versions before 0.10.7, you might need to follow the instructions below instead.

$ ./configure --enable-introspection
$ make
$ sudo make install
