Compiling Czkawka from sources
If you only want the terminal version without a GUI, just skip all the packages with
gtk in their names.
FFmpeg is not included here because it is not needed to build - it is dynamically loaded.
|Rust||1.60||Czkawka, aims to support the latest available version of Rust on Ubuntu 20.04|
|GTK||3.24||Only for the
Debian / Ubuntu
sudo apt install -y curl git build-essential # Needed by Rust update tool curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh # Download the latest stable Rust sudo apt install -y libgtk-4-dev
Fedora / CentOS / Rocky Linux
curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh # Download the latest stable Rust sudo yum install gtk3-devel glib2-devel
You need to install Rust via Homebrew and GTK Libraries
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)" brew install rustup rustup-init brew install gtk+3 adwaita-icon-theme librsvg
Will be available in the future
For Linux-to-Windows cross-building instruction look at the CI.
docker build ./misc/docker/ --tag cargo-gtk
Czkawka can be installed with Debug or Release build.
With Debug build additional checks, e.g., variables overflow, are available, but depending on the usage it works very slow, so it should be used only for development purposes.
--release flag will optimize binaries, so they can be used with good performance (official binaries are built with this flag)
- Download the source
git clone https://github.com/qarmin/czkawka.git cd czkawka
- Compile and run GTK GUI
cargo run --release --bin czkawka_gui
- Compile and run CLI (by default this will print help with examples)
cargo run --release --bin czkawka_cli
Compilation with Docker
docker run -t --rm --volume $PWD:/app --workdir /app cargo-gtk cargo build --release --bin czkawka_gui
Run the binary:
For now, finding broken audio files is temporarily disabled by default, because app crashes when audio libraries are not found on the computer.
I'm waiting for ability to disable audio playback feature, so after that I will be able to re-enable by default this feature (https://github.com/RustAudio/rodio/issues/349)
To enable checking for broken audio files, just add
cargo run --all-features --bin czkawka_cli -- broken -d /home/rafal/ -f "results.txt"
