Official portable version

Forums: 

Hello!

Please make portable version of Bleachbit for all platforms.

Thank you!

You mean for Linux? You already can. Just download and run the source code. Because there is no complication, the source code is the same as the portable version.

Hmm okey thank you :) . I did it.

I need to ask you if this is possible for other open-source softwares for Linux?

Usually no. Most software is compiled, so you cannot simply run it from source. For example, Firefox, OpenOffice.org, and VLC are compiled from C or C++ into a binary before they can be executed. I know from personal experience that compiling OpenOffice.org can be a challenging project. On the other hand, it is possible to have portable, open source software on Linux... I've run Firefox and OpenOffice.org portable on Linux---this is how Mozilla distributes the beta for Firefox on Linux.
