Download / Install / Run

You can either download the sources or the binaries. If you are a new user or a non-technical user, you are better off downloading and installing the binaries. To download, simply click on the download link and you will be asked to either "open" or "save to disk". Choose "save to disk" and proceed. If download does not start, then keep the Shift key pressed and then click on the download link. All the files shown below and older versions are directly available from the sourceforge dowload site.

Binary RPMs are available for the following distributions:

Linux Mandrake 8.1 (KDE 2.x) - download

Linux Mandrake 8.2 (KDE 2.x) - download

Linux Mandrake 8.2 (KDE 3.0) - download

To install : Click on the above link. If you get "open using software manager", then select open and follow the on-screen instructions, else select save and then run rpm -Uvh [the RPM file you downloaded] as root.
To run : you will find KMagnifier installed in Applications->Accessibility under the KDE Menu or simply kmag on the command prompt.

Source RPMs are available for the following distributions:

Linux Mandrake - download

Linux Mandrake (KDE2&KDE3 both installed) - download

For all other versions/distributions of linux and other operating systems, you can download the compressed sources here:
In .tar.gz format - download
In .tar.bz2 format - download

To install from these sources, simply unpack the software in a directory. Then login as root and run ./install-root inside that directory, and the script will take care of everything! If you do not have root access to the machine, then run the ./install-user command. This will install the binary in a "bin" directory under your home directory. These scripts take care of the Mandrake menu system too.

OR :

You can unpack the sources and do


Then login as root (type "su" followed by the root passwd) and run:

make install

KMagnifier will get installed in /usr/local/bin

If you want to install kmag in /usr/bin, run ./configure --prefix=/usr instead of a simple ./configure
