Click on granule.exe Application in bin/ folder to start the application. You might want to create a desktop shortcut and use bin/granule.ico for an application icon.

 From Source


NOTE: To build from the source tarballs, you will need development packages (library_name-devel) of each library from the dependency list installed on your system.

You have to install Granule first before you can run it. An attempt to run it from source directory will not properly resolve paths to the icon files:

% tar xvfz granule-RELEASE.tar.gz
% cd granule-RELEASE
% configure && make
% su 
# make install

   ... installation ...
# exit
% granule
