MGM download

The current version of MGM for Linux, Solaris, and NetBSD is 1.1



Perl 5 with the Tk module installed


  1. Un-tar MGM where you want it to actually be installed. /usr/local/mgm is a very good place.

  2. Make a symlink from (for example) /usr/local/bin to the absolute path of the actual MGM script. The symlink must point to the *full* *absolute* path. The install relies on this. In our example, with MGM installed in /usr/local/mgm:

    ln -s /usr/local/mgm/mgm /usr/local/bin/mgm
    ...will do nicely.

All done. Don't forget to rehash any csh derivative shells.

MGM will not get your whites whiter or your colors brighter. It will, however, sit there and look spiffy while sucking down a major honking wad of RAM.
