Install Instructions

The Panopticon project distributes binary builds for Ubuntu Xenial, Debian Stretch, 64 bit Windows and OS X Yosemite. There is no release process, the binaries are build from the current master branch. On top of that there are unofficial packages for Gentoo and Arch Linux.

After installing you may want to check out the user documentation.

Ubuntu Xenial & Debian Stretch

Download the DEB file for Xenial or Stretch and install it using the following commands:

sudo dpkg -i /path/to/deb/file
sudo apt-get install -f

Gentoo Linux

There is a ebuild for Panopticon maintained in the das-labor overlay we can use. We will also need the Rust toolchain in the rust overlay. First, install the overlay by typing the following into the console:

sudo layman -a rust

Now, we can unmask the git version and compile Panopticon:

sudo sh -c 'echo "=dev-util/panopticon-9999 ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/das-labor'
emerge panopticon

Start Panopticon by typing qtpanopticon.

makepkg -isp /path/to/PKGBUILD
