And install the package via:

apt-get -t squeeze-backports-sloppy install bluefish
 +
 
 +
This version is built with the GTK+ 2 libraries. Report any bugs to the Debian bugtracker.

 +
== Installing the very latest on Ubuntu Linux ==
 +
 
 +
You'll find recent packages of '''bluefish''' in [https://launchpad.net/~klaus-vormweg/+archive/bluefish the Bluefish PPA maintained by Klaus Vormweg]. Follow the instructions 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 debian.wgdd.de 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    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Also the '''wgdd-archive-keyring''' package then is obsolete together with the repository keyring.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 Debian GNU/Linux

Installing the release that is part of Debian / Ubuntu / Mint / etc.

Use

This version is built with the GTK+ 2 libraries. Report any bugs to the Debian bugtracker.

Installing the very latest on Ubuntu Linux

You'll find recent packages of bluefish in the Bluefish PPA maintained by Klaus Vormweg. Follow the instructions 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 debian.wgdd.de 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 Fedora Linux

Installing the version distributed by Fedora

dnf install bluefish

Installing the very latest on Fedora with dnf

To enable a bluefish-release dnf repository download the bluefish-release.repo file.
Place this repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d

Then you can install normally with...

dnf install bluefish

Packages are currently provided for Fedora 24 and 25. Packages are provided for both i386 and x86_64.
All packages are built using mock. All packages are signed. You will be prompted to download the GPG key.

Installing development versions on Fedora with dnf

While care is taken to keep development versions very stable and usable, development versions may crash, contain data eating bugs and incomplete features.
Please report any bugs you might find in Bluefish bugzilla

If you wish to test the bleeding edge versions of Bluefish currently under development download the bluefish-svn.repo file.
Place this repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d

Then you can install normally with...

dnf install bluefish

Packages are currently provided for Fedora 24 and 25. Packages are provided for both i386 and x86_64.

Installing Bluefish on RHEL/CentOS 6.5

Installing the very latest on RHEL/CentOS 6.5

Bluefish packages for RHEL/CentOS 6.5 are available at the links below for i386 and x86_64.
These packages require version 6.5. Previous versions prior to 6.5 had GTK+ 2.18.x.

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 the latest version installer 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 workaround that setting.

Use the contextual menu (e.g. secondary-click button), and you'll see a menu with "Open" in it. This will present you with a dialogue box, asking you for permission to run the software. You will only be asked this the first time.

Alternatively, the Gatekeeper setting can be disabled. For 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 with internet connection

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-2.2.7-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.
