How to install & build KiCad 2009-02-16 on Ubuntu 9.10

Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala)

  • sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake doxygen subversion libglut3 libglut3-dev zlib1g zlib1g-dev libboost-dev libwxbase2.8-0 libwxbase2.8-dev libwxgtk2.8-dev
  • wget
  • tar zxvf kicad-sources-2009-02-16.tar.gz
  • cd kicad-2009-02-16
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake ..
  • make -j16
  • sudo make install
now you can type 'kicad' in your terminal, also [applications] -> [programming] in gnome panel. to remove the kicad you can run "sudo make uninstall" under the build folder


Before doing install, remember to uninstall previous KiCad version firstly.

sudo apt-get remove kicad

This is posted that I wanted to upgrade my linux 9.04 to 9.10. Then install new version of KiCad 2009-02-16 version. And Xiangfu he knows more Linux knowledge than me, so I asked him to help me that how i can do this. Thanks for Xiangfu's post.
