This might not be very well document but you should find this in the GIFT readmes. There is a command Calling this perl script with the option --help will give you all the parametres required.

The easiest interface to use might be the php interface available from the web pages. If your PC is accessible from the Internet you can also use an existing interface such as the one on and connect to your IP address and the port you started GIFT with.

There is indeed very little documentation on GIFT and it will require some manual work.

Cheers, Henning

then gift seems to be working properly. You need to index a database before starting gift makes sense. You also need a client interface to actually use a started gift server with a database.

There is not much documentation but the most important commands are described in the readme, I think.

can't see it in the applications or is there another way to use it?

Hi Rahayu,


sudo agt-get install gnuift

make sure you have universe repository in your software sources (you can
check it from System->Administration->Software Sources->Ubuntu Software)

Dear Rahayu,

I have never used the Ubuntu package, so it is hard for me to reproduce the error. The gnuift package might not contain the latest version.

If you feel able to use the latest version from the GNU subversion, then compiling it on your machine manually might work better.

Cheers, Henning
