Dependencies

Starting from v4.7, the following pure python dependencies are bundled with OCIDE (this makes packaging easier):

Installation

GNU/Linux

Note: starting from v4.6.2, the installed executable name is lowercase: opencobolide

Ubuntu

A debian package is available here: https://launchpad.net/cobcide/+download

This package should work on any Ubuntu version >= 14.04 and on any version derived from Ubuntu.

Fedora

A RPM package for Fedora 23 is available here: https://launchpad.net/cobcide/+download

ArchLinux

OpenCobolIDE is available from the AUR.

You can install using one of the many available AUR helper; e.g. using yaourt:

yaourt -S opencobolide

KaOS

OpenCobolIDE is up in the KaOs Community Packages (KCP):

kcp -i gnu-cobol
kcp -i opencobolide

Other distributions

Install Python3, PyQt5, GnuCOBOL and pip for Python3 using your package manager, then run the following commands:

sudo pip3 install OpenCobolIDE --upgrade

Note that if you have both PyQt5 and PyQt4 on your system, the IDE will use PyQt5 by default. To force the use of PyQt4, you should set the QT_API environment variable to pyqt4.

Windows

There is a windows installer available here: https://launchpad.net/cobcide/+download

Mac OSX

There is a dmg image available here: https://launchpad.net/cobcide/+download

Before running the app, you first have to install the GnuCOBOL compiler, e.g. using homebrew:

brew install gnu-cobol

If you installed the compiler in a non-standard path and it is not recognized by the IDE, you can specify the path to the compiler in the preferences dialog (Compiler tab)
