Running Ingen

Monolithic (Engine and GUI in one process)

If you want to simply run Ingen as a graphical application it should already be present in your desktop's application menu (or equivalent). If not, you can simply run it yourself: ingen -eg

A window should show up containing the root patch, which will be empty except for the two event ports for control which are always present.

Running an ingen server

If you're doing something a little more interesting, you might want to run an Ingen server yourself and control it via a socket. Simply run ingen -e and the server will launch on the default port, 16180. To run on a specific port (or do anything else that isn't the default behaviour) see the output of ingen --help. You can control the server by running a separate GUI with ingen -g, the ingenish utility, or from anything that can talk to a socket.

What's next?

You should now hopefully have Ingen running. See IngenBasics for an introduction on how to get started.
