Yes, I've searched the forums. Still haven't a clue.

Tried the steps here: http://monkeyblog.org/ubuntu/installing/#source
... no luck.

The tar.gz file is on my desktop.

Sunbird 0.8 is in the hardy repositories.
sudo apt-get install sunbird

@jw5801 :


$ apt-cache policy sunbird
sunbird:
Installed: (none)
Candidate: 0.7+nobinonly-0ubuntu2
Version table:
0.7+nobinonly-0ubuntu2 0
500 http://tw.archive.ubuntu.com hardy/universe Packages
The hardy repo has 0.7 instead of the latest 0.8. jw5801, do you know which repo has 0.8? Thanks.

Hmm... you are correct. I wouldn't have said that without a valid reason though. Perhaps they regressed? I had a look in hardy-proposed and it isn't there either. It is in the Intrepid repository though. Take a look here (http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/sunbird) and you should be able to get the .deb for it. I'm not sure if it'll install however, may be compiled against newer versions of some libraries.

EDIT: Yeah, you'll struggle to install the version in the Intrepid repositories without updating a lot of other things to their current unstable versions. Compiling it from the source would be a better option.
