To install from github, clone the git repository using:

$ git clone

Navigate to the source’s root directory (contactpp) and run:

$ python install

If you have a zip or a tar.gz archive of the source, unpack the compressed archive into a directory, navigate to this directory and run:

You may need to run this as root, unless you are running in a virtual environment.
