GSiteCrawler on Linux

Google Sitemaps allows the webmaster to help Google index their pages optimally. The GSiteCrawler will help you generate the best Google Sitemap file for your website. The GSiteCrawler uses different ways to find all the pages in your website and can generate all sorts of files, statistics and more. The sitemaps file format has lately been also adapted by Yahoo! – even MSN/ is pledging it’s support.

The GSiteCrawler is available for free and runs under Windows – all you need is an internet connection and the desire to make the most out of your website!

Following below simple steps, you will be able to install and run GSiteCrawler on your linux box :

1. Add the Wine repository to your system and update to latest wine release.
Refer to your system documentation to find out how to locate and add a new repository.

2. Install the following at the terminal:
# wget && sh winetricks jet40

3. Download the full installation copy of GSiteCrawler.

4. Right click the program install file and select “Open with Wine Windows Program loader”.

Thanks for Nick Wilson for pointing this out.

Windows users can just download and install the program directly, but MS Windows Vista users have to take the following in consideration :

You must install and run the program as administrator.
Go to the folder where you installed it, right click the executable GSiteCrawler.exe and select Properties.
Go to the Compatibility tab and check the box near the bottom to Run as administrator.
Do the same thing for the program to compress the database DbCompress.exe. And the uninstaller Unwise.exe for good measure.
You will also face the typical Vista prompt “Are you sure you want to run …”.
