Gaupol is an editor for text-based subtitle files. It supports multiple subtitle file formats and provides means of creating, editing and translating subtitles and timing subtitles to match video.
Gaupol also includes
aeidon, a separately installable general-purpose
Python package for reading, writing and manipulating text-based subtitle
README.aeidon.md for details.
Gaupol is packaged for most of the popular distros, so easiest is to install via your distro's package management. If not packaged for your distro or you need a newer version than packaged, read below on how to install from Flatpak or the source code.
Stable releases are available via Flathub.
The development version can be installed by running command
make install under the
flatpak directory. You need make, flatpak-builder
and gettext to build the Flatpak.
Gaupol requires Python ≥ 3.2, PyGObject ≥ 3.12 and GTK ≥ 3.12. Additionally, during installation you need gettext. Optional, but strongly recommended dependencies include:
|GStreamer||≥ 1.6||integrated video player|
|chardet||≥ 2.2.1||character encoding auto-detection|
From GStreamer you need at least the core, gst-plugins-base, gst-plugins-good and gst-plugins-bad; and for good container and codec support preferrably both of gst-plugins-ugly and gst-libav.
On Debian/Ubuntu you can install the dependencies with the following command.
sudo apt install gettext \ gir1.2-gspell-1 \ gir1.2-gst-plugins-base-1.0 \ gir1.2-gstreamer-1.0 \ gir1.2-gtk-3.0 \ gstreamer1.0-gtk3 \ gstreamer1.0-libav \ gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad \ gstreamer1.0-plugins-good \ gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly \ iso-codes \ python3 \ python3-chardet \ python3-dev \ python3-gi \ python3-gi-cairo
Then, to install Gaupol, run command
sudo python3 setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local
Windows installers are built irregularly, see releases.
