Source is available from SourceForge.net and you can get it as follows:

  svn co https://fpgui.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/fpgui/trunk fpgui

You can compile from command line or via Lazarus IDE. More detailed
instructions are in <fpgui>/src/readme.txt file.

Via Lazarus

Via command line

The fpGUI UI Designer project file is located in
Alteratively you can compile from the command line as follows:
  cd <fpgui>/uidesigner
  fpc @extrafpc.cfg uidesigner.lpr

fpGUI requirements are low:
  X11 & Xlib dev packages
  xft dev package      (fpGUI only supports anti-aliased text under X11)
