This page describes how to run ccPublisher on Linux; for developer information, see the ccPublisher Developer page. Creative Commons distributes a gzipped tar file containing the source for ccPublisher on Linux. Before running ccPublisher on Linux you need to have the following installed:

  • Python 2.4 or later
  • wxPython 2.6 or later
  • elementtree (not required with Python 2.5 or later)

Once you have the prerequisites installed, you can untar the downloaded file and run the application:

$ tar zxvf ccPublisher-2.0.3.tar.gz
$ cd ccPublisher-2.0.3
$ ./ccPublisher.sh

Note that for releases prior to 2.0.3, the wrapper script was not provided. You can run ccp.py with the Python interpreter for an older release. However, we stongly encourage you to upgrade as newer releases in the 2.0.x series contain fixes for bugs reported by our users.

If you have the mad skills necessary to work with packaging ccPublisher in an RPM or DEB file, email software at creativecommons dot org; we could use your help.
