View Full Version : [ubuntu] Therion Source Code

September 17th, 2009, 01:21 AM
Hey guys,

I have a question. I'm in a Speleology class and I am trying to install Therion, which is an open source caving survey and mapping software program. My question is. the download comes in a source code, I am still unaware as what to do with this. Can I install and run from here, or do I need to do it through a terminal? Thanks.

You can install a slightly out-of-date version of Therion (version 0.5.1; the latest is 0.5.2 so not much difference) using this command:

sudo apt-get install therion

If you really do want the latest version, the source code you downloaded probably comes with a readme file which will tell you how to compile and run it.

Okay so I did that and it worked, but now I can't find the damned thing to open it. I realize I can use the terminal and/or the GUI. So, if anyone can give me directions for either, it'd be much appreciated. Thank you.

You will probably have to create a launcher manually for it. To find where the proper is located, type:

locate therion

It should be installed in /usr/bin.

I know this is an old thread now, but you probably want to run xtherion rather than therion. Can I ask where you are that has a speleology class?
