## Builds (pre-compiled packages) ¶

Widelands is using the hosting services of [Source Forge](http://www.sf.net). ¶


### Windows ¶

Download the setup file named Widelands-build*XX*-win32.exe from [downloads](http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=40163). ¶
Double-click it and follow the instructions. ¶
Afterwards simply start Widelands by clicking on that icon. ¶

#### Precompiled development packages ¶
[Tino](/profile/Tino) provides daily (or even more often compiled) builds. These can be found at [http://widelands.8-schuss.de/](http://widelands.8-schuss.de/). ¶

### Linux ¶

__Note:__
It is likely, that there are pre-compiled packages for your Distribution. Widelands is tracked by any major Linux distribution.

__Note2:__
The official ubuntu package in current versions are known to be missconfigured - translations will not work and some other smaller problems might occure. So it might be a better idea to download our version if you use ubuntu.

Download tarball named Widelands-build*XX*-linuxi386.tar.gz from [downloads](http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=40163). ¶
Unpack the BZIP2 (tar -xvjf ) or ZIP file. ¶
Enter the newly created directory (cd widelands). ¶
Start the executable (./widelands). ¶

#### Precompiled development packages ¶
[Azagtoth](/profile/Azagtoth) provides daily builds of svn. Just go to [https://www.azagtoth.de/widelands-daily/](https://www.azagtoth.de/widelands-daily/). Some browsers might say something about invalid certificate. Just add it, and don't worry about it. ¶

### Mac OS X ¶

Download disk image named Widelands-build*XX*.dmg from [downloads](http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=40163). ¶
Open the Disk Image; copy the executable to your local disk. Double click to run. ¶


## Source Code ¶

### Build ¶

The packages containing the tag _source_ are the source packages for this release, they usually come in two flavors: ZIP and TAR.BZ2. Both archives contain exactly the same content. ¶

Download the source of a build number at the [downloads page](http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=40163). Note that you have to download the binary package as well, since they contain the data files needed to play Widelands. ¶


### Subversion (SVN) ¶

If you plan to join development or are just interested in the latest inventions ¶
you should go for this. You __need to have__ SVN with SSL installed, to check-out the trunk. Type in the ¶
console: ¶

svn co https://widelands.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/widelands/trunk widelands ¶

If (it might not) SVN asks you if it should accept the certificate of our SVN server, say (p)ermanently. ¶

After downloading the source, you might want to check BuildingWidelands for a !HowTo on building. ¶
