Install the following build dependencies. If your distro segments development files from core packages (i.e., *-devel or *-dev packages), you may need to install those as well:
- gettext with development files
- ncurses with development files
If you are using a release tarball, the following commands can be used to build and install calcurse:
$ ./configure $ make $ make install
make install needs to be run as root. When working on a Git
checkout, you need to run
build-aux: auxiliary files for the build process
contrib: useful tools such as hooks or the CalDAV synchronization script
doc: detailed documentation in plain text and HTML
po: translations and i18n-related files
scripts: additional official scripts, such as
src: the actual calcurse source files
test: test suite and test cases for calcurse
calcurse was created by Frederic Culot in 2004. Since 2011, the project is maintained by Lukas Fleischer. Many core features added to calcurse since 2017 were designed and implemented by Lars Henriksen.
Of course, there are numerous other contributors. Check the Git commit log and
Thanks section in the manual for a list of people who have contributed by
reporting bugs, sending fixes, or suggesting improvements.
