Since there are many dependencies, when you install from sources,
you have to handle them by hand, according to your distribution.

All installation procedures allow you to chose whether you want graphical
applications.  Add ``--no-qt --no-xdg`` to disable them; ``--qt --xdg`` to
enable them.

After a package or system installation, you should run ``weboob-config update``
as your login user.

The install mode copies files to the Python system-wide packages directory (for
example ``/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages`` for Python 2.5, or
``/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages`` for Python 2.6). ::

This does not actually install anything, but lets you run Weboob from the
source code, while also using the modules from that source. This is only
recommended if using the git source and not a release. ::

For example, instead of running ``videoob -b youtube search plop``, you would
run::

    $ ./tools/local_run.sh videoob -b youtube search plop
