Detailed downloads

If the above method fails, then select and click one of the buttons below to download the latest version package for your operating system (where available). If there is no package for your OS, please download and compile the source code (last icon).

If you need to compile the latest source code, please see Instructions.

Please note that on most Linux distributions, you can install SocNetV through the package manager (i.e. apt-get install socnetv) although these versions are usually quite older. Users of openSUSE, Fedora and Ubuntu are advised to add our repositories (openSUSE/Fedora and Ubuntu PPA) to install and automatically update to the latest and greatest SocNetV version.

Warning for Debian users: SocNetV needs Qt5 libraries, which are available only in the testing/unstable trees.
If you are running testing or unstable, the installation will be flawless.
To install the socnetv deb package in Debian stable, first  try to install it with the command

dpkg -i socnetv_1.9_amd64.deb

then change your sources.list to "testing" from "stable" and finally perform an

apt-get update && apt-get -f install

Afterwards, you can revert sources.list to "stable" again.

Ubuntu users should have no problem installing either 32bit or 64bit package. But it's easier to use  the PPA and install from there.

Development version ('develop' git branch)

You can clone the development branch (called "develop") of SocNetV with the command

git clone -b develop --single-branch git:// socnetv

A new directory called socnetv will be created. To build the development version, install the qt5 libraries and afterwards change dir into socnetv

cd socnetv

and enter the following two commands to compile it:




If you have Qt5 installed, a binary file named socnetv (or socnetv.exe) will be created. You can run it by

./socnetv (in Linux and Mac) or socnetv.exe (in Windows)
