Getting sources

Stable versions of GEM are available here.

If you prefer the development version, you can clone the git repository:
$ git clone


Make sure you have the required dependencies for GEM:
  • file
  • gtk+3
  • python3
  • python3-gobject
  • python3-setuptools
  • xdg-utils


  • gnome-icon-theme
  • gnome-icon-theme-symbolic
  • gtksourceview
  • python3-xdg
When dependencies are installed and sources fetched, you can launch the installation's script, at the root of the project (you need root rights):
# ./
When installation is complete, you should have GEM available on your system. You can find it in the menu of your favorite desktop environment or executing the command "gem-ui".
