DynamO is free and open-source, made available under version 3 of the GPL licence. On this page you can download the source code or prebuilt packages for a range of Linux distributions.

Prebuilt packages

The DynamO source code is built regularly for a range of popular Linux distributions.

DistributionVersionBuild dateVisualiserAdv. Potentials
CentOS 7 (RedHat Enterprise Linux)1.6.434615/02/16NoNo
CentOS 6.6 (RedHat Enterprise Linux)1.6.434615/02/16NoNo
Fedora 211.6.434615/02/16YesYes
Debian 7 (Wheezy)1.6.434615/02/16YesNo

Please note, you may need to install additional packages for DynamO to work, and not all functionality is supported across all platforms. Only more recent distributions support the visualiser (due to requirements on OpenGL libraries) and advanced potentials (due to the required compiler support of C++11).

You can check the status of the builds using the DynamO CDash site. If your distribution or version is not listed above and you think it should be, please contact the developers to request an additional build, or compile the code yourself.

Ubuntu PPA

A Ubuntu PPA is available which enables automatic updates of DynamO. To install, add the PPA to your system and install the dynamo packages. A brief summary of the shell commands required is given below, and further instructions are given at the PPA site if required.
