Try Without Installing

By using pipx, you can run Python CLI programs in ephemeral one-time virtual environments.

pipx run gdbgui

A new tab running the latest version of gdbgui will open in your browser. Press CTRL+C to end the process, and your system will remain untouched.

You can install pipx like this:

pip install --user pipx
pipx ensurepath



This option relies on pipx, the Python CLI binary runner and installer. It installs Python CLI programs in isolated virtual environments. pipx can run any Python CLI program, including gdbgui. This is the recommended installation method.

pipx install gdbgui

Then type gdbgui at the command prompt.

To upgrade, run

pipx upgrade gdbgui

In a Virtual Environment

Alternatively, if you have already activated a virtual environment, you can install gdbgui with pip.

pip install gdbgui

Then type gdbgui.
