We know it is not easy to install Padre but we know the main problem are wxWidgets (that Alien::wxWidgets tries to solved) and the Wx distro from CPAN. So we have several strategies.
- Describe below results people have on various OS-es
- Ask the various downstream distributors to include Padre
- Create a stand alone version using PAR
Help in any of those is appreciated. Please post links to any conversation you might have with the distro maintainers so others can follow up.
Linux in general
There is an experimental executable for Linux that can be dowloaded from http://www.perlide.org/download/ it has an initial warning popup but then it seems to work.
Wx is to be in the Intrepid (9.04 ?) release of Ubuntu: http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/libwx-perl
Padre is released as a CPAN package. You can download and install it using CPAN.pm or CPANPLUS. The released versions can be seen here http://search.cpan.org/dist/Padre/ and here http://kobesearch.cpan.org/dist/Padre.
The difficult part though will be to install some of the prerequisites:
Mattia Barbon did a great job with them but they are still difficult to install. Any help in that are would be welcome as well. See the wxPerl web site and mailing list.
On Strawberry Perl 5.10 you can install it following these steps
cpan> look Alien::wxWidgets $ perl Makefile.PL $ dmake $ dmake test $ dmake install $ exit cpan> install Wx cpan> install Padre
The next Debian release will have wxPerl in it, albeit with an old version of wxWidgets
Fedora has wxPerl since at least FC8
Has Wx version 0.82
OS X 10.4 has wxPerl 0.22, 10.5 has a more recent version (0.6x for some x)
