    Howto: Build the newest version of Bluefish under Ubuntu

    This thread is closed.

    The information is now held on the community wiki at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bu...efishforUbuntu

    Thank you for your thread and the work you have done in keeping it current and of use to the community.

    Support threads regarding the wiki and it's content should be created in a suitable forum.

    In March Bluefish 2.2.2 was released. This mini-guide demonstrates how to build this version from source under the newest release version of Ubuntu and has been tested most recently under Oneiric Ocelot. First we need to remove the repository version if it has been installed:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove bluefish
    Next download some compiling tools and dependencies:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall libart-2.0-dev libaspell-dev \
    libbonobo2-dev libbonoboui2-dev libgail-dev libgnome-keyring-dev libgnome2-dev \
    libgnomecanvas2-dev libgnomeui-dev libpcre3-dev libpcrecpp0 libpopt-dev \
    libgucharmap2-dev libenchant-dev intltool
    Next download the source code, open the tarball and compile and install it with the following single command:

    Code:
    mkdir -pv $HOME/bluefish_build && cd $HOME/bluefish_build && \
    wget http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/source/bluefish-2.2.2.tar.bz2 && \
    tar xjvf bluefish-2.2.2.tar.bz2 && cd bluefish-2.2.2 && \
    ./configure && make && \
    sudo checkinstall --fstrans=no --pakdir "$HOME/bluefish_build" --backup=no \
      --deldoc=yes --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default --pkgversion "2.2.2" && \
    make distclean
    And that is it! This gives you the newest version of this great editor. Please feel free to post any problems in this thread or even better any successes!

    Re: Howto: Build the newest version of Bluefish under Ubuntu

    Hi nilarimogard,

    Thanks for pointing this out which of course has the blessing of the Bluefish developers:

    Installing Bluefish
    http://bfwiki.tellefsen.net/index.ph..._9.04_or_newer

    I would personally read with some care the owner's comments regarding his Ubuntu packages, which I confess I have not tried...

    I believe there are also a couple of decent PPAs that offer the new Bluefish. Lots of choices .

    Re: Howto: Build the newest version of Bluefish under Ubuntu

    Unfortunately, no, there are no deb's around for karmic koala. Just for jaunty and it's developers release, not final 2.0.
    I also checked Lucid's PPA packages and unfortunately Bluefish is still 1.07. It's in the frozen state, so don't expect anything. I hope Bluefish team will update & make new debs.

    Sigh... I hate compiling, all those needed packages, it's messy.

    Re: Howto: Build the newest version of Bluefish under Ubuntu

    Just installed using your instructions - worked great!

    One question - could you explain the last two lines?

    Code:
    $ sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" --backup=no --deldoc=yes \
      --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default --pkgversion "2.0.0"
    $ make distclean
    Just looking to learn a bit about what's going on.

    Thanks!

    Excellent news, I hope you enjoy the new version as much as I am .

    One question - could you explain the last two lines?

    Code:
    $ sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" --backup=no --deldoc=yes \
      --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default --pkgversion "2.0.0"
    $ make distclean
    I use checkinstall here because I am too lazy to learn formal debian package management but checkinstall still produces a decent package that will install and uninstall like any other package that you download from the Ubuntu repository. --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" simply means that the eventual deb package will be deposited on your desktop. The options --backup=no --deldoc=yes --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes are designed to minimise the amount of cruft left in the source tree when checkinstall has finished. The option --pkgversion "2.0.0" will be the version seen in Synaptic for instance and this will mean that if version 2.0.1 comes to the repository sudo apt-get upgrade will automagically install this version. The option --default means checkinstall will not ask you questions, it will accept the default response, and these defaults are quite reasonable.

    The final command make distclean cleans the source tree of all configure logs, compiled executables etc and leaves it as you originally started. This prevents a lot of problems if you recompile from this same directory.

    Hope this helps?

    The .deb package saved to the desktop - this isn't needed, is it?

    It is not needed for the program to run and can safely be deleted. You could save it for reinstallation on your own computer if you liked but it is not suitable for sharing with other users, for this you would have to build a formal debian package.

    Good news is that I have tested this guide under the beta 1 of Lucid Lynx and it works perfectly without any modification .
