Installing the very latest on Ubuntu Linux

Users of Ubuntu releases, for which bluefish doesn't get any official update by the Ubuntu team in the past had the possibility to use the http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu repository. This has become obsolete. You'll now find recent packages of bluefish in this PPA. Follow the instrcutions given there to add this repository. Then bluefish can be updated to its latest release:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Please note, that the http://debian.wgdd.de repository has become obsolete. See below, how to clean your system.

Removing obsolete entries from sources.list

The http://debian.wgdd.de/ repository no longer provides packages of bluefish. The above steps make the following entries to either /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_*.list or any other file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ obsolete. You can safely remove any references to the http://debian.wgdd.de repository, that may look like these:

deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/debian squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/debian squeeze main contrib non-free
deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/debian oldstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/debian oldstable main contrib non-free
deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main restricted universe multiverse 
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main restricted universe multiverse 

and update your system:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Also the wgdd-archive-keyring package then is obsolete together with the repository keyring. If you have the package installed, do:

sudo apt-get autoremove --purge wgdd-archive-keyring

... or if you only had the key:

sudo apt-key del E394D996

Installing Bluefish on openSUSE

Bluefish is available in the main repository. Launch YaST and search for "bluefish" to find and select the appropriate package to install.

This process is also automated through 1-Click-Install on the openSUSE Build Service: https://software.opensuse.org/package/bluefish

Installing Bluefish on AltLinux

Installing Bluefish on Slackware

Installing Bluefish on Mac OS X

Download http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/binaries/macosx/Bluefish-2.2.5-2.dmg from http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/binaries/macosx/, open it and drag the bluefish icon onto Applications.

In Mavericks there is a system setting called Gatekeeper that only allows you to install packages from Apple-identified developers. Bluefish is not distributed through the Apple app store, so you will have to disable that setting.

Installing Bluefish on Windows XP or newer

Installing 2.2.5

Download the latest Bluefish installer from the main download server: http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/binaries/win32/

The installer will require internet access to download GTK+ and any spell check dictionaries. Please note that the internet-enabled setup may fail if the installer is run from a network share. See below for instructions for internet-less installation.

Installing without Internet Access

Download the latest Bluefish installer from the main download server: http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/binaries/win32/

Download the GTK+ 2.24.8 installer (from the gtk-win project): http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gtk-win/gtk2-runtime-2.24.8-2011-12-03-ash.exe?download

Download any language dictionaries you wish to be able to install: http://www.muleslow.net/files/aspell/lang/

Place the files in a new directory named 'redist' in the same directory as the Bluefish installer. e.x.

Bluefish\
Bluefish\Bluefish-2.2.5-setup.exe
Bluefish\redist\gtk2-runtime-2.24.8-2011-12-03-ash.exe
Bluefish\redist\aspell6-en-7.1-0.tbz2

The installer will fall back on downloading the files if they are not found in the redist folder, or if the checksum of the local copy is invalid.
