Tagsistant is available as a tar.gz archive or prepackages for some distributions:

The source archive and all the repositories contain a script that performs some standard tasks to make Tagsistant compilable. If you get errors running ./configure, use ./ before.

Since release 0.8.2, Tagsistant development has moved on Github. To clone the repository install the Git client and do:

git clone tagsistant

Since version 0.6, to compile tagsistant you’ll need libglib2.0, libfuse and libdbi headers with the MySQL and SQLite3 plugins. On Ubuntu you can get them with this command:

$ sudo apt-get install libdbi-dev libdbd-mysql \
  libdbd-sqlite3 libfuse-dev libglib2.0-dev

Starting from version 0.7, Tagsistant also requires libextractor:

$ sudo apt-get install libextractor-dev

Other distributions will provide similar sets of packages. On RedHat/CentOS/Fedora try replacing the -dev suffix with -devel.
