    Question UML For Gnome

    Hello All,
    I am currently looking for a UML Designer Program for ubuntu Gnome . I have installed BOUML, Project Control and Project Synchro. I hope these programs are ment for KDE and not gnome. I am using gnome and wish to continue the same. When I try to open these programs there are asking to set some environmental variables. I dont know how to set environmental variables in Ubuntu gnome. I think probably thats only possible in KDE?? Is there any other UML Designer Tool for Gnome.

    Thank you in Advance.

    What environmental variables does he ask for? Can you give the complete (error?) message.

    I'm not familiar with BOUML, and after a quick Google I can't even find Project Control/Project Sychro. If you continue to have trouble with BOUML you might want to try Umbrello, which IMO is a very good cross-platform UML modeller:

    http://uml.sourceforge.net/screen.php

    It's in the repositories, just install it from Synaptic.

    Re: UML For Gnome

    Hi,

    Bouml is not associated to Kde or Gnome, it uses Qt and is able to run under any Linux, Unix, MacOS X and Windows. I reference packages I know in the download page

    you try to use an old release of Bouml, now you don't have to define environment variables like BOUML_ID, all can be defined through the "environment dialog" under Bouml itself

    if you really want to use your old release you just have to define the BOUML_ID variable :
    • to define an environment variable under Linux (t)csh, place the following line in your .cshrc : setenv <var> <value>
    • to defined an environment under Linux bash, place the following line in your .bashrc : export <var>=<value>

    in this case <var> is BOUML_ID and <value> can be 2 (supposing this value is not already used by an other user working with you)

    however I encourage you to use a recent release, for instance the last one. An Ubuntu package is made by Arakhne (also referenced in the download page).

    Independently of the use of the Arakhne package you can also 'awake' Ubuntu asking them to upgrade their Bouml packages

    Best regards and happy modeling

    Bruno

    You know you're in good hands when the developer of an application takes the time to register on a forum, just to answer a user in peril

    EDIT: Next release of Ubuntu (end of this month) will include Bouml 4.4 (which has BOUML_ID fix), for now though you may be better off getting the latest release from upstream as bruno_pages suggested.

    Just in case you still want to try something else you could look at Gaphor.

    It's an old thread, but I came here and tried all of these. Ended up finding Dia in the repos, it's the one I stuck with.
