- Comix README - === About ===================================================================== Comix is a user-friendly, customizable image viewer. It is specifically designed to handle comic books, but also serves as a generic viewer. It reads images in ZIP, RAR or tar archives as well as plain image files. It is written in Python and uses GTK+ through the PyGTK bindings. === Installation ============================================================== Run "python install.py install" as root to install Comix in /usr/local. To uninstall, simply run "python install.py uninstall". If order to install Comix in another base directory, use the --dir option. Example: # python install.py --dir /usr install If you have installed with --dir, do not forget to use the same option when uninstalling. There is another option, --no-mime, that can be used to tell install.py that it should not register new mime types for cbz, cbr and cbt archives, or install the thumbnail creation script for these files that is used by some file managers (such as Nautilus and Thunar). As an example of how to install Comix from the downloaded tar.gz file, run as the root user (via su or sudo): # tar -xzf comix-x.y.tar.gz # cd comix-x.y # python install.py install If you don't want to install Comix in some system directory, you can just execute the file src/comix.py in the unpacked Comix directory to run the program. You could also create a symlink somewhere in your PATH pointing to this file. === Dependencies ============================================================== Comix needs Python 2.4, PyGTK 2.12 and PIL (Python Imaging Library) 1.1.5 or newer to function. To use the library you need pysqlite (which is usually included in the standard library for Python 2.5 and later). You also need either the "unrar" or the "rar" program installed if you wish to read RAR (.cbr) archives. === Credits =================================================================== Thanks to everyone who have contributed translations, suggestions, bug reports, fixes and donations! Icons with a filename starting with "gimp" are taken from The GIMP, and icons with a filename starting with "tango" are taken from the Tango Desktop Project. Most other icons are made by Victor Castillejo, creator of the GNOME-Colors icon theme. === Contact =================================================================== Pontus Ekberg <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://comix.sourceforge.net Don't hesitate to contact me. =============================================================================== Have a nice day.
