docs bug: Pidgin PPA installation instructions are incomplete for Ubuntu 11.04.* (Ubuntu Natty)
|Reported by:||molchuvka||Owned by:||rlaager|
Pidgin 2.9.0 (libpurple 2.9.0). Ubuntu Natty (AKA Ubuntu 11.04.*).
Regarding "the ppa install" part of http://pidgin.im/download/ubuntu/ :
/* I use ubuntu natty with ui "classic ubuntu". */
The ppa installation instructions should specify the following:
In Ubuntu Natty (Ubuntu 11.04.*), GDebi is not installed by default.
To install it, run a terminal (click Applications, point to Standard /*or is it Accessories???*/, click Terminal), and type:
sudo apt-get install gdebi
Then press Enter. When the installation completes, press Ctrl D to close the terminal.
The ppa installation instructions should include something like that, at appropriate place:
Select Open with: and GDebi Package Installer. (If GDebi Package Installer is not present in the list of applications to Open with, select Other... and specify gdebi-gtk at the input box). Click OK.
It seems that GDebi Package Installer was absent from Open with... application list immediately after "sudo apt-get install gdebi" completion, but I'm not quite sure --- needs to be investigated.
I somehow ran gdebi from the Open with: Other... input box, it did nothing and shown nothing. After that, it seems that the GDebi Package Installer entry appeared in the Open with: list.
I didn't actually try to specify gdebi-gtk at that box. Needs to be checked if specifying gdebi-gtk works as expected.
$ gdebi --version 0.7.0
