Debian Installation Instructions

Installation using the Package Manager

Padre 0.63 is available in Debian 6.0 ("squeeze"), as well as in the unstable and testing branches of Debian.


# aptitude install padre

Older Stable Releases

If you run a stable release prior to Squeeze (6.0), you'd have to add an "unstable" or "testing" source to /etc/apt/sources.list, e.g. as follows:

deb unstable main
deb-src unstable main

Then update the package list

# aptitude update

and perform the installation as described above.

Installation from CPAN

The key is to uninstall all wxwidgets and wxperl related packages, and to install enough of the -dev packages to allow Alien::wxWidgets to build version 2.8.8. Once that works, cpan install Wx and from there Padre should install -- see the Subversion install instructions? for more.

Still Not Working?

Following the instructions on this page did not lead to a successful installation?
