You can get a very recent revision of OpenLP via the "nightly build"
tarball, or you can get the latest version directly via Bazaar.
The nightly build is a source tarball (.tar.gz file) of a recent
revision. The tarball is generated each night. To see when the tarball
was last created, check the OpenLP Twitter
account. Simply download this file to
your computer, and then extract it. If you don't have an application
which can open .tar.gz files, the recommended program is
Bazaar Version Control
To access the source code, you will need a Bazaar client. Download the
Windows client from
the Bazaar site. The recommended download is the latest Stable
Once installed, create a Project directory for OpenLP, e.g. "My
Documents\My Projects\OpenLP". Then right-click in the directory, go
to TortoiseBzr, Checkout/Branch and type in lp:openlp in the "branch
from" edit box.
Once you have run these steps, bring up the Windows command prompt
(Start -> Run -> "cmd.exe"), CD into the folder you downloaded OpenLP
into and then run the program using python. We recommend using the debug
command line option which produces the log file that will assist
developers if you find a
