Just run the executable installer. The wizard will install GanttProject and establish file associations with .gan files and optionally with Microsoft Project files.

If you're having troubles with the installer, you may try platform-independent ZIP archive which includes a launcher .bat file

 GanttProject is written in Java and requires Java Runtime version 6 or higher to be installed. You can check if you have Java and download Java Runtime on java.com

We build Debian package for the latest Ubuntu Linux, and hopefully it will work on other Debian-based distros. Download it and install with Ubuntu Software Center or command-line dpkg tool.

If you're running some other Linux distribution, you may try platform-independent ZIP archive which includes a launcher script written in bash

 GanttProject is written in Java and requires Java Runtime version 6 or higher to be installed. You can check if you have Java and download Java Runtime on java.com

Download dmg file, open it as a volume and either drag GanttProject to your Applications.

It will register an icon for .gan files and associate them with GanttProject so that they could be opened with double-click.

 

GanttProject is written in Java and by default requires Java Runtime version 7 on Mac OSX. If Java 6 is installed on your Mac and you are not up for upgrading, you can download package for Java 6.

You can check if you have Java and download Java Runtime on java.com

Make sure that Java Runtime Environment is installed and that you can run java from the command line. Download ZIP file, unzip it in your home directory ($HOME on Unix systems) and run a launcher script (one of ganttproject.sh, ganttproject.bat, ganttproject.command, depending on your platform) from $HOME/ganttproject-2.6.6 directory.

    This is a pluggable jar of stub classes representing the new Apple eAWT and eIO
    APIs for Java 1.4 on Mac OS X.  The purpose of these stubs is to allow for
    compilation of eAWT- or eIO-referencing code on platforms other than Mac OS X. 
    The jar file is enclosed in a zip archive for easy expansion on other platforms.
     
    
    These stubs are not intended for the runtime classpath on non-Mac platforms. 
    Please see the OSXAdapter sample for how to write cross-platform code that uses
    eAWT.
