Users have reported problems getting wxPython to run on Mac OS X, but you can try the following:

Ubuntu/Debian

General remarks

The program itself is stand-alone, can work from any directory, and does not need additional installation, Windows installers have been provided for convenience. The installed program can be copied to a USB stick and used elsewhere, same goes for the source code. The command line interface only needs Python to run.

If running from source code, Skyperious needs Python 2.7 or 2.6. Python 2.6 will need the argparse library. Python 3 is yet unsupported.

The graphical user interface needs wxPython, preferably version 2.9+. wxPython 2.8 is also supported (2.8.12+), with some layout quirks.

If wxPython is not available, the command line interface will function regardless.
If other Python libraries are not available, the program will function regardless, only with lesser service - like lacking Excel export or full search syntax.

Vagrant

If you have problems using above methods, you can try using Vagrant.
