nano /usr/local/etc/sudoers 


add at the end of /usr/local/etc/sudoers 1 line


Ctl-X to exit and Y to save



3. Download-Unzip-Install

Download CodeTyphonIns.zip and unzip to your home directory


Open a terminal, and go to new CodeTyphonIns directory

cd CodeTyphonIns

Start CodeTyphon Installation with command

sh ./install.sh

Give zero "0" to Install CodeTyphon




4. Setup and Build (GTK2)

After CT install you can start CTCenter or to continue with the open terminal

We don't change GTK2 Platform.

It's the first installation of CodeTyphon on this PC, so we install "system libraries" select "0".


Select "8" to build all...





CTCenter and Typhon64 for GTK2





5. Build Typhon IDE for QT5 (KDE5)

a) Switch Typhon IDE Host Platform to QT5

CodeTyphon Center => Setup Dialog

and select QT5 Platform

b) Only for the first time, install OS System Libraries
