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.

- 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.
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.
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
Wx is to be in the Intrepid (9.04 ?) release of Ubuntu: http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/libwx-perl
The next Debian release will have wxPerl in it, albeit with an old version of wxWidgets
Fedora has wxPerl since at least FC8
