    Excellent news! For Windows, there’s some detailed documentation on installation, which I personally think is excellent. (Though I may be biased, since I wrote some of it myself!) For Linux, I remember installation being pretty simple last time I tried it (on an Ubuntu VM, as I already mentioned), though I haven’t attempted it again lately.

    For compilation there are instructions here that should be enough. We also had issues at run time about missing gsettings-schemas. We found a thread for another gtk application which solved our issues with these commands:

    Sorry, not a maintainer (that would be /u/garetxe, I think), just a satisfied user! And a Windows one to boot, so I wouldn’t know about Mac (though I have previously managed to build it on an Ubuntu VM). Perhaps try building it again and submit an issue if it doesn’t work; there’s some relevant documentation here and here which might help.
