How to report a bug

To fill a bug report for GCompris, you must use the gnome bugzilla and select GCompris in the product list.


We use git for our development. The git repository is hosted by Gnome but we also have a local web viewer.

To get the GCompris master branch (warning this takes more than 500MB) :

git clone git://
cd gcompris
sh && make

Alternatively, if you are only interested in the recent history, and would want to send in fixes as patches, you can use the option: git clone --depth=1 git:// It will save you more than 100MB.


GCompris has a lot of dependencies. On a Debian based distribution that already packages GCompris, you can install all the required dependencies with the command 'apt-get build-dep gcompris'.


The Drawing board

These are pages to hold the different discussion for things we are working on:



GCompris is a large software which has numerous dependencies. We ask packagers to be very careful and follow this minimal and manual test process.
