If you want to conventionally install it, for example for a multi-user system, you can run this command:

sudo make install

Get ranger with git

git is the version control system used to manage the source code of ranger. Install it, then type:

git clone
cd ranger

You can also browse the source code

The advantage of git is that you get lots of useful commands for keeping the code up to date and merging your own changes with the upstream code. Here is a selection of commands. For more details, please read the fine manual.

git checkout stable  # use the stable version
git checkout master  # use the testing version
git pull             # fetch updates from upstream
git commit -a        # commit your changes to your local branch

Signed Packages

If you want to be sure of the authenticity of the snapshot, please download ranger-stable.tar.gz and its signature, then verify the signature with the author's public keys:

gpg --search-keys 1E9B36EC051FF6F7FFC969A7F08CE1E200FB5CDF  # Roman Zimbelmann's key
gpg --search-keys 30193C49CB39CD27008246ADE5902A52B247B8DE  # Wojciech Siewierski's key
gpg --search-keys 66FA95C0F1619BDA520A41F60D63346A5D15D055  # Toon Nolten's key
gpg --verify ranger-stable.tar.gz.sig  # Check if the package was signed by one of the authors

If this prints Good signature, the signature was verified. However, you can only trust the authenticity of the snapshot as much as you trust the authenticity of the public key. Please ensure that the key really belongs to Roman Zimbelmann (aka hut), Wojciech Siewierski (aka vifon) or Toon Nolten (aka toonn, __monty__) by verifying it from multiple sources. Once you are sure, you can sign the key with your own signature as described here to avoid the warning that says "This key is not certified with a trusted signature! There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner."
