This page is relevant for Qstit version 2, see here for the newer version 3.
Note that there can be conflicts between the two versions if they are both present on your system. You should use one or the other. We recommend version 3 except if you are using an old system that doesn't support recent versions of the Qt libraries.

Latest version: 2.9.6 · Check the changelog or the latest news for more details. You can find older versions here.
This version is fully functional but there are a few bugs (a list can be found here). They won't be fixed, we are now exclusively working on version 3.


· For Ubuntu-based distributions, the easiest way to install Qstit is to add our software repository (PPA) to your source repositories and download Qstit from there. Installation is automatic and you will get updates as they are published. Type the following commands in a terminal to add our PPA to your sources and install Qstit:

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:nova-cinema/qstit
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install qstit

· Debian packages (.deb files) are available here. You can also get the package matching your version and your system from the list of packages in our PPA. Download and double-click the .deb file (or use your package manager) to install Qstit. It will appear in your applications but won't be updated automatically.

· If you prefer to compile it yourself, you can get the sources from our project page on GitHub and follow the instructions provided.

Note that with Qstit 2 running in fullscreen doesn't work properly on Ubuntu with Unity, the default desktop environment: the system bar stays on top of the screen (the same goes for the launcher on the left if it isn't set to auto-hide). You'll have to find a way to hide it when projecting. Or you can use alternative desktop environments such as Gnome-shell, LXDE (default in Lubuntu), XFCE (default in Xubuntu), KDE (default in Kubuntu) or Cinnamon (default in Linux Mint) that can be easily installed on Ubuntu. You will then be able to switch from one to the other when logging in.


· Download the latest executable from the list and place it anywhere on your computer. To run the program, you also need to download a few libraries (.dll files) that need to be in the same folder as the executable (if you were using Qstit before, be sure to download the latest version of the .dll files provided here and not older ones).
Just double-click on "qstit.exe" to launch the program.

On certain systems, it seems that extra libraries are needed to launch the program. Download them and copy them in the same folder.

· You can also get the source code from our GitHub project page and compile it using the instructions provided.


· You can download a version of the application for Mac OSX. It is compiled for Intel based Macs running in 64bits (but also seems to work on Intel machines running in 32bits).
Before running the program, you have to download and install the Qt libraries (version 4, not 5!). You can find older versions of the Qt libraries in their archive, if you don't know which one to choose, take 4.8.6.

Although it should work just as on Linux and Windows, we don't test Qstit thoroughly on Mac so we cannot guarantee how it behaves. You can always contact us if you run into a specific problem, Mac users' feedback interests us as well.

· If you do know how to do it, you can get the source code from our GitHub project page and compile it yourself.

Note that running in fullscreen doesn't work properly on Mac OSX with Qstit 2, the system bar stays on top of the screen. You'll have to find a way to hide it when projecting.
