If you do not use a binary release of Nagstamon, the following requirements have to be fulfilled:


All of these are included in any Linux distribution – no PIP required.

For creation of binary packages one might need to install the typical packaging utilities of the choosen distribution to use the included script.


If you want to run Nagstamon from sources on Windows, you have to run this PIP command after installing Python:

C:\python34\scripts\pip install PyQt5 requests beautifulsoup4 keyring psutil

If you want to create binary packages with the distributed script, you also need

At the moment cx-freeze is not capable of packaging Python 3.5 applications for Windows so it is packaged with Python 3.4.

Mac OS

Best experiences are being made with Python 3 and PyQt5 from the Fink Project at After installing both packages the other dependencies might be retrieved via PIP:

# /sw/bin/fink install python34 pyqt5-mac-py34
# /sw/bin/pip3 install setuptools requests beautifulsoup4 keyring psutil

For binary packages made by the included script you will need cx-Freeze too:

# /sw/bin/pip3 install cx_Freeze
