If you are on Linux and want to try out the latest version of gPodder, it is easy to do by cloning from Git. You only need Python, PyGTK and Git installed, all other dependencies can be installed into the Git checkout.

Do I need root, compile anything or install it system-wide?

As gPodder is written in Python, there is no need to compile anything or to install it into system directories (you do not need root). You can run it straight from a source checkout, this is also how gPodder's developers run it.


  • Python 2
  • PyGTK
  • Git


git clone
cd gpodder
python tools/         # To install dependencies
python tools/  # Optional: Create Desktop icon 
bin/gpodder                          # To directly launch from command line


cd gpodder
git pull
