You can install in a usual way for Python modules using distutils, so use which is placed in the top level directory:

./ build
sudo ./ install

You can also install it using pip installer:

pip install python-gammu


To compile python-gammu, you need Gammu development files (usually shipped as libgammu-dev or gammu-devel in Linux distributions).

The location of the libraries is discovered using pkg-config, GAMMU_PATH environment variable and falls back to generic locations. In case it does not work, either install pkg-config or set GAMMU_PATH.

On Linux something like this should work:

GAMMU_PATH=/opt/gammu python build

On Windows:

python build


Please see included python documentation:

>>> import gammu
>>> help(gammu)

Alternatively you can use Sphinx to generate browsable version, which is also available on-line at <>.
