This entry is only for Debian Sid/Wheezy users, who want to test the release candidates too. Official bluefish releases are provided via the Debian archive.

Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list

or put a snippet into /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

sudo wget http://debian.wgdd.de/stuff/debian.wgdd.de_wheezy.list -N -P /etc/apt/sources.list.d

Run updates, to pick up the newly available options

sudo apt-get update

You may see errors at this point, because you've not yet installed the cryptographic key, but that's OK as you're about to do that

Then install the repository cryptographic key and Bluefish:

sudo apt-get install wgdd-archive-keyring
sudo apt-get install bluefish

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. For more information see https://kb.wisc.edu/helpdesk/page.php?id=25443 or http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5290

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.
