    Howto: Install RKWard ver. 0.4.7a on Ubuntu Feisty (7.04)

    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
    • Obtain the required packages for RKWard to compile:
      Code:
      sudo apt-get build-dep rkward
    • Extract the .tar.gz and change into the rkward-0.4.7a directory
    • Enter the following commands:
      Code:
      sudo ./configure
      sudo make
      sudo make install
    • Start RKWard by entering
      Code:
      rkward
      at a terminal, or hitting Alt+F2 and entering rkward.

    Hello,

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

    Best regards
