Previous releases

Besides the latest release, you have option to install previous releases for testing and fallback experience. You can download from the following sources.

Alternative methods

The recommended way is to install via dpkg. To install without package manager support, use method 1 or 2. Else method 3 and 4 are subject to changes and availability as noted.

1. Install via make install

wget https://github.com/clearkimura/Customizer/archive/master.tar.gz
tar zxvf master.tar.gz
cd Customizer-master
sudo make LRELEASE=true
sudo touch tr/fake.qm
sudo make install

2. Install via git

When using this method, if you do not have PolicyKit on your system, you can replace pkexec with gksu, kdesu, kdesudo or any other alternative.

sudo apt-get install git
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/clearkimura/Customizer
make ELEVATOR=pkexec
sudo make install

IMPORTANT If installation fails, run the last three lines of sudo [...] commands in make install method. More details refer to issue #85.

3. Install using script

When using this method, the script will install the dependencies for you.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/clearkimura/Customizer/master/INSTALL
chmod +x INSTALL && ./INSTALL

IMPORTANT This script is compatible for "old stable" only. The script is made available after 4.1.3 was released (commit 956bd13).

4. Install from PPA (3.2 release only)

When using this method, the APT package manager will install the dependencies for you.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:customizer-dev-team/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install customizer
