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 http://iut-tice.ujf-grenoble.fr/cao/kicad-sources-2009-02-16.tar.gz
- 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.
