For production environments and when using a supported distribution, we recommend using the packaged installation. This will install Nepenthes as a system dependency using your distribution's package manager, and provide updates in the same fashion that all other system packages do.

Manual installation

An OUTDATED and OLD manual installation option exists, but due to the large number of components involved and the rapid evolution of Nepenthes, we cannot ensure that the procedure is either up-to-date or that it will correctly work on your machine. This means that manual installation is NOT recommended NOR supported.
