$ python install

This will install the pyqode-designer gui script to your bin/Scripts folder.


Open a terminal and run the following command:

$ pyqode-designer

If you don’t want to install the package, you can just run the designer script manually (in the pyqode package):

$ python pyqode/


On GNU/Linux, a desktop entry in the Development category will be created when you install the package
