    Can anyone install Cli Companion in 13.04?

    I'm a long time user of Ubuntu but had to skip 12.10 (used Mint) because I never figured out how to install Cli Companion. I was hoping to get back to Ubuntu and have installed 13.04, but still cannot get Cli Companion working.
    I tried apt-get(after adding PPA) and also downloaded .deb installer, still no luck. Is there anyone that has figured out how to do this, I'm sure it's something simple I've overlooked.

    I gotta have this in my linux distro, I'm 73 and can't remember sh......,

    Thanks, pwc

    Dowloaded and installed the Precise package from the ppa works here.
    No build for Raring or Quantal in the ppa.

    Link to ppa...https://launchpad.net/~clicompanion-...lies/+packages
    Direct link to Precise deb download...clicompanion_1.1-6~bzr111+p21~precise1_all.deb

    Raring 64bit
    Installed using gdebi.

    Yeah, the old brain cells start to prioritize as you get older.
    More important to remember what day it is.

    Thanks for answering stinkeye, I actually got in working without installing Precise pkgs, I had it installed with the .deb file, it just would'nt open.
    But after running a script(Ubuntu-after-install) it did open, happily surprising me. Don't know what happened causing it to open, but on my way
    with Raring, so far I'm liking it, seems more refined!

    thanks again,pwc

    Well, the last commit on the trunk branch is from 2013-02-19. So is the last PPA package for precise. I'd rather not call it abandonware. True that they don't have PPA packages of it specifically built for quantal. But being just a python app seems not so critical. You may always
    Code:
    apt-get -b source clicompanion/precise
    sudo dpkg -i clicompanion*.deb
