Installing Gnaural

Installing is very easy:


  1. The new Gnaural for Java (see here for help and info) will run on all platforms, but you'll first need Java
  2. Download Gnaural for Java
  3. Run Gnaural by either double-clicking the file "GnauralJava.jar" or by launching from your command-line interface
    with this command:
    java -jar GnauralJava.jar


  1. Install Gnaural for Windows


(Advice: If the version compiled on 10.5 isn't working on your Mac, try the 10.7 one. They are identical except for the version of OSX they were compiled on)
  1. If you are running MacOSX 10.7 ("Lion") or higher, try this Gnaural for MacOSX.
  2. If you are running MacOSX 10.5 ("Leopard"), try this Gnaural for MacOSX.
  3. For even earlier versions of MacOSX try Gnaural for Tiger 10.4


  1. For Ubuntu's official version: Gnaural for Ubuntu. Also check:'s version of Gnaural
  2. Here's Fedora's: Gnaural for Fedora
  3. Puppy Linux has a .pet installer for ver. 5.2 (meaning you can now run Gnaural from a LiveCD!)
  4. If Gnaural isn't pre-built for your distro, simply download the source and compile it using the instructions here
For all versions of Gnaural currently available, go here. For alpha pre-release versions (if available) go here. If you have problems installing, or just want a very quick, "no installation" peek at the idea of Gnaural, here is a very stripped-down version that will run in your browser: Gnaural Java Applet.

Installing Optional Presets ("Presets" are customized sound files that you can run in Gnaural)
