GSpeakers documentation

Installation on Linux

To be able to plot the frequency response of a crossover network (and this is something you want to do if you design a little bit more advanced loudspeaker) you should install a spice3 compatible spice interpreter. If you have got a unix system (perhaps also on windows) you can download a spice interpreter for free. If you use Linux you can download on:

Spice installation
Download the file spice3f5sfix.tar.gz. Unpack this file and compile it by executing the following command:
./util/build linux
from the spice source directory. The (as root) you type:
./util/build linux install
This will install the spice3 executable to /usr/local/spice/bin. You might want to add this to your path:
echo "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/spice/bin" >> ~/.bashrc
echo "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/spice/bin" >> ~/.profile
or some other file depending on your distribution or shell. The above procedure for installing spice works fine on my RedHat 7.3 system.
You might want to download the binary instead, installation should be similiar. There are also rpm-packages (download).

GSpeakers installation

Download the latest GSpeakers.
tar xvzf gspeakers-0.xx.tar.gz
where xx is the version of the file you downloaded.
If you don't want GSpeakers to print any debugging information to the console, type ./configure --enable-no-debug-output.
make install (as root)
Then you should be able to type gspeakers to run the program. Please send a mail to me if you experience problems during the installation.
