### Linux ¶
It is likely, that there are pre-compiled packages for your distribution. Widelands is packaged in all major Linux distributions. ¶
In case your distribution does not provide pre-compiled packages for Ubuntu and openSUSE we have special repositories in place (see next section). ¶
Another option is to compile Widelands yourself. Go to the [[ Building Widelands | BuildingWidelands ]] page for further instructions. ¶

#### Debian/Ubuntu ¶
For Ubuntu, especially for older versions which will not get a backport of the latest build, we offer a [Personal Package Archive]( Follow the install instructions on the PPA's site to add it to your system. We also offer a [torrent]( for the source package. ¶

##### Installing ¶

~~~~ ¶
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:widelands-dev/widelands-daily ¶
~~~~ ¶

If your system doesn't have the `add-apt-repository` command installed, you can do so by calling ¶

Unofficial development Builds ¶

There are some people providing pre-compiled (ready to run like our official releases) packages, made from our current development state. Below are the links to those builds. Installation should work similar as described in "Official builds" ¶

### Windows 64 bit only ¶
[Tino](/profile/Tino) provides daily (or even more often compiled) 64 Bit builds. These can be found at []( ¶

After downloading one of the development builds your browser might warn you that the file can possibly harm your computer. This is a false alarm! There is just too little information about these files, because they change so rapidly, that the browser cannot say for sure whether they are malicious or not. ¶

### Windows 32 bit and 64 bit ¶
Other windows builds are available through [appveyor]( On the right of the list click on one of the entries called 'master-NUMBER'. Entries called in another way are not commited into the main trunk and may does not work properly. So be sure to use only the entries called 'master-NUMBER'! On the next page choose one of the releases which fit your Platform (x64 for 64 bit operating system, x86 for 32 bit operating system). In next screen click on the button _'Artifacts'_ and then on the given file. The Download should start automatically. We also offer a [torrent]( download of the last release. ¶

### macOS ¶

#### Disk Image ¶

[SirVer]( builds 64bit binaries for macOS fairly often. You can find them here: ¶

<> ¶

Please report any problems with those via [PM to SirVer]( ¶

#### MacPorts ¶
In case you use [MacPorts]( you can use the following commands to install Widelands: ¶

To get the latest release version, do this: ¶
``` ¶
sudo port -v install widelands ¶
``` ¶
To get the last devel version that has been tested, do this: ¶
``` ¶
sudo port -v install widelands-devel ¶
``` ¶
and to build the untested tip of the bzr commit tree, do this: ¶
``` ¶
sudo port uninstall widelands-devel ¶
sudo port -v install widelands-devel +HEAD ¶
``` ¶
Note that on that last +HEAD version, the listed date of the port when you check with port info or port -v installed will not necessarily be accurate. You have to uninstall or deactivate the widelands-devel version before you install the new +HEAD version to make sure you have the latest tip of the tree, as MacPorts cannot know what the tip of the bzr tree is for a +HEAD version. ¶

He have a [discussion topic on the forum]( for MacPorts. ¶

### Linux ¶

#### Arch ¶
__PKGBUILD:__ There is a widelands-bzr pkgbuild in the Arch User Repository: [click here]( ¶

#### Ubuntu (recent releases) and derivatives (like Linux Mint >= 17) ¶

The dev team maintains a PPA for Ubuntu on Launchpad with daily builds of the latest development version. ¶
PPA stands for personal package archive - it is essentially something you add to your apt sources.list and which will get queried when you search in the Ubuntu Software Center (or via other alternatives such as apt-get install). It will guarantee that you are using the latest version of Widelands on your system. ¶

Our PPA with daily builds is here: <>. Installing from it is as simple as opening a terminal and typing: ¶

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:widelands-dev/widelands-daily ¶
sudo apt-get update ¶
sudo apt-get install widelands ¶

If your system doesn't have the `add-apt-repository` command installed, you can do so by calling ¶

~~~~ ¶
apt-get install software-properties-common ¶
~~~~ ¶

__PS.__ There are only release builds and release builds with debug info on Launchpad. To use the debug window (F6) you will need to build Widelands in debug mode, see [[ Building Widelands | BuildingWidelands ]] for a HowTo on building. ¶
