    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove bluefish
    Next download some compiling tools and dependencies:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall libart-2.0-dev libaspell-dev \
    libbonobo2-dev libbonoboui2-dev libgail-dev libgnome-keyring-dev libgnome2-dev \
    libgnomecanvas2-dev libgnomeui-dev libpcre3-dev libpcrecpp0 libpopt-dev \
    libgvfscommon-dev libgucharmap2-dev libenchant-dev
    Next download the source code, open the tarball and compile and install it:

    Code:
    $ cd $HOME
    $ wget http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/source/bluefish-2.0.0.tar.bz2
    $ tar xjvf bluefish-2.0.0.tar.bz2
    $ cd bluefish-2.0.0
    $ ./configure
    $ make
    $ sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" --backup=no --deldoc=yes \
      --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default --pkgversion "2.0.0"
    $ make distclean
    And that is it! This gives you the newest version of this great editor. Please feel free to post any problems in this thread or even better any successes!

    Recent Updates to This Guide:

    • Successfully tested under Lucid Lynx
    Thank you! Works like a charm!

    Good to hear . I will admit that I am not actually running Ubuntu at the moment so I cannot really update this guide but I believe a point upgrade for Bluefish has been released and this might be worth a look at. Should just be a matter of downloading the new source and compiling as suggested and altering the --pkgversion string for checkinstall...

    All the best,

    Andrew

    Re: Howto: Build the newest version of Bluefish under Ubuntu

    I got around the issue in my original question below by opening the source directory in the URL directly in my browser and just saving the file to my home directory.

    ===================PROBLEM BELOW SOLVED ================================================== ===
    Code:
    $ wget http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/source/bluefish-2.0.0.tar.bz2
    I hope someone's still following this forum. On the quoted line above, I keep getting the following error:

    --2010-08-03 09:52:35-- (try:20) http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/st...-2.0.0.tar.bz2
    Connecting to www.bennewitz.com|85.10.194.36|:80... connected.
    HTTP request sent, awaiting response... Read error (Connection reset by peer) in headers.
    Giving up.


    Does this mean the server is having problems? Should I keep trying, or is this source file no longer available?

    I have renovated the guide thanks to a VM I set up and changed the download address to a US one, I would be interested to see if wget is happier with this? Both addresses work for me. A version bump as well that might make it worthwhile recompiling,,,

    Re: Howto: Build the newest version of Bluefish under Ubuntu

    The guide worked for me on Ubuntu Lucid 32-bit. What a wonderful auto-complete feature!

    I've got one problem though. Syntax highlighting of Comments doesn't work properly in css files. It is very annoying to watch a /* comment */ appear as regular text most of the time. It works sometimes, and it seems to be only within brackets only for some reason.

    HTML comments work exactly as they should.

    So does anyone else experience this? Know of a sollution??

    Thanks andrew.46 this is just what I was looking for. It worked for me in Lucid.
    I'd rather die fighting lions than being trampled by geese.

    I don't suppose Bluefish 2.0.1 will run on Jaunty?

    It will run but I do not have Jaunty installed at the moment to see if this guide will still build ok. The only problem will be perhaps some of the -dev files and apt-get will tell you if they are not available or have differnt names...

    All the best,

    I can confirm this on my system, it appears to be a bug. Screenshot attached to demonstrate. Might be worth chasing up the Bluefish guys with this one...
