Ubuntu Installation Instructions

Installation using the Package Manager

Ubuntu 9.10 contains Padre 0.42

# aptitude install padre

Installation from CPAN

This was checked for Ubuntu 9.04, but it should work for later versions as well.

  • sudo aptitude install libwxgtk2.8-0 libwxgtk2.8-dev libwxbase2.8-dev libwxbase2.8-0
  • sudo aptitude install g++
  • download and setup local::lib
  • configure the cpan client setting the prerequisite_policy to 'follow' and to add a CPAN server in the urllist:
    • conf prerequisites_policy follow
    • conf urllist
    • conf save
  • cpan Alien::wxWidgets
  • cpan Wx
  • cpan Padre

There are certain places where is still asking for confirmation "is just needed temporarily during building or testing. Do you want to install it permanently (y/n) [yes]".

This can be eliminated by setting build_requires_install_policy to 'yes' in the CPAN client:

  • conf build_requires_install_policy yes
  • conf save
