Download CGAL for Linux

With a Package Manager

Most Linux distributions package some version of CGAL. The demos are usually packaged separately.

# Debian or Linux Mint
sudo apt-get install libcgal-dev # install the CGAL library
sudo apt-get install libcgal-demo # install the CGAL demos
# ArchLinux
sudo pacman -S cgal

Build from Source

To build CGAL from source on a UNIX-Like System you have to download a release as a tarball or you can clone the current development version of CGAL from GitHub. The build process is documented in the Installation Manual.

Please note that the directory layout and build process of the development version on GitHub are different from the release version.
