I've seen some folks having trouble getting RKWard to work on Ubuntu Feisty. I decided to see if I could get it working on my machine, and was able to get it up and running. I thought I'd post how I did it in case it might help someone else.

First of all, the RKWard package in the Ubuntu repos is broken, and a simple apt-get install rkward did not give me a functional package. Here's what I did to get it woking.


Download version 0.4.7a (rkward-0.4.7a.tar.gz) from:
Sourceforge.net (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=50231&package_id=43758)
Obtain the required packages for RKWard to compile:

sudo apt-get build-dep rkward
Extract the .tar.gz and change into the rkward-0.4.7a directory
Enter the following commands:

sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install
Start RKWard by entering
rkward at a terminal, or hitting Alt+F2 and entering rkward.

Your link to sourceforge has "http://" twice.
