client for h-node.org
Distribution packages
  • Parabola package h-client
  • Trisquel package h-client in DNS's PPA https://launchpad.net/~dns/+archive/misc/+packages?field.name_filter=h-client&field.status_filter=published&field.series_filter=
Getting the h-client from source

You can download the client by typing the following command:

svn co svn://svn.savannah.nongnu.org/h-client/trunk/h-client
  • Python 2.6 or 2.7
  • Distribute
  • pyGTK
  • pycurl

(they would most likely be already installed).

Trisquel 4.5 users

Have to install python-setuptools in order to install the client:

sudo aptitude install python-setuptools
Have a package built for you

Here's one liner I put together to build the package.

cd ~/ && \
sudo apt-get install subversion checkinstall  python-setuptools && \
svn co svn://svn.savannah.nongnu.org/h-client/trunk/h-client && \
cd h-client && \
version="0.$(svn log | grep r | cut -d ' ' -f1 | head -n1)" && \
sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" --pkgname h-client \
--pkgversion "$version~svn" --backup=no --default python setup.py install && sudo ldconfig

In order to install it type:

python setup.py install --user

and run it using:


(or just h-client if added ~/.local/bin to PATH).


If you are using Trisquel 4.0 you have to comment the row starting with "pycurl" inside the file setup.py (see the below piece of code) and install pycurl by means of the package manager

#        "pygtk",  # tries to get an old version

If it does not work try to empty the following folder:
