Git Repository

If you want to try Pan between releases, you can get the sources from the official GNOME Git repository at http://git.gnome.org/browse/pan2/. For details on using Git, see https://wiki.gnome.org/Git.

To clone the Git repository, run:

git clone git://git.gnome.org/pan2

To clone the older, archived version, run:

git clone git://git.gnome.org/archive/pan

Compiling from Source

If all goes well, running ./autogen.sh; make in the pan2 directory will result in the executable pan2/pan/gui/pan.

Compiling Pan requires the header files for gtk2 and gmime. On most systems these are optional packages named gtk2-devel and gmime-devel. You will need one more optional package for a basic compile run, gnome-common.

If you plan to use advanced features like SSL with GnuTLS or GNOME Keyring password support, you will have to install their appropriate development packages or compile from source. See README for more details on the required versions of these add-ins.

Remaining tools typically come built-in on systems configured for development: gcc, m4, automake, autoconf, pkg-config, and intltool.
