Just unzip the download and run the relevant file under the bin directory.

Mapton is also available from AUR for Arch Linux and its derivatives.

Please report any issues by mail or via github.


This is a work in progress and from time to time a new snapshot will be available, it might be old, it might be unstable, but probably just interesting.
