Go to the local downloads section for Linux source files.

Or, Fedora Core1 package.

Windows Requirements:

Although Gonvert was designed to work with Linux, it also works very well with MS-Windows. A few other programs have to be installed first, these will also give you the ability to develop your own similar Python-GTK programs using only a text editor!
  1. Install GTK to c:\GTK, and add C:\GTK\lib and C:\GTK\bin to your PATH.
  2. Install Python and add C:\Python22\DLLs to your PATH
  3. Install pygtk
  4. Put gonvert.pyw and gonvert.glade together on your system somewhere (preferrably your UTILS directory).
  5. You can now start up gonvert.py from a window file manager.


Find detailed information about using Gonvert with FreeBSD here.

Older versions:

Version 0.1.x
Version 0.0.15 Requirements:


If you want to do GUI development on Gonvert or similar programs then you will need glade.

Written in Python with Glade using the Pygtk interface. All of these things may already be included on your distribution.

Other Unit Conversion Programs

Citrus is a library and suite of demo applications for converting numbers with units into numbers with different units. It accomplishes this using dimensional analysis so that you can multiply, divide, and exponentiate dimensions together to get the units that describe your number.
With ConvertAll, you can combine the units any way you want. If you want to convert from inches per decade, that's fine. Or from meter-pounds. Or from cubic nautical miles. The units don't have to make sense to anyone else.
A KDE unit converter. It's modular and can have a different interface for converting between units in a given dimension group.
A Java based converter with a precision of up to 1000 significant figures! Supports more than 1600 units in 75 categories, including lengths, areas, volumes, durations, bits & bytes, angles, temperatures, exchange rates, roman numbers, spoken numbers, all 35 radixes and more.
The "classic" units program. It's command line only, but very complete.
Google Calculator
Simply type things like "1lb to oz" into Google for a quick O/S portble conversion.
