Ubuntu Install Instructions and Other Distributions

Postby Feanor76 » Thu Nov 19, 2009 14:33

Hi folks,

Just a quick note: on my system (gentoo) and on most (all?) linux boxes I've used, user installed python packages go in "/usr/lib/python<version>/site-packages/". The Ubuntu directions on the website and in the INSTALL.linux.txt file both say to use "/usr/lib/python<version>/dist-packages/".

This isn't a big deal, but I modified my install (versus the given instructions) as follows:

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/orange
tar -cf - --exclude='.svn' * | sudo tar --no-same-owner -xf - -C /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/orange

sudo sh -c "echo '/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/orange' > /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/orange.pth"
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/orange/liborange.so /usr/lib/liborange.so


Best,
Mark

PS I rarely use the graphical interface ... but hot damn, the 2.0b screen shoots look nice! Great work folks!
