View Full Version : [ubuntu] GFire install help

May 16th, 2009, 01:35 AM
Well, first off, I'd like to say that I am a complete and utter noob at Ubuntu. This is my first time running it ever.

I've managed to get through the installation process, and I'm running it from a hard-drive rather than live CD.

I'm trying to install my first program, and I've hit a brick wall already.

Could someone give me an idiots, step by step guide to installing GFire?

Also have you looked for it in Synaptic? Installing it with Synaptic will be much easier than compiling from source but I am not sure if it is in the repositories. I would check but I am at work and far from my Ubuntu boxes (sitting here on this POS Win2000 computer).

Also I just found a deb package for it on sourceforge...


You can download this file and it will give you the option to install it with the package manager.

I am assuming that you are using the 32 bit version of Ubuntu, if you are running the 64 bit version you need this package.

Also here is a link to another post that has a You-Tube video on how to install this on Ubuntu
