Installing Guten on Ubuntu Dapper

Guten is an application that acts as an interface to the Project Gutenberg project. It formats and displays books, allows bookmarking, and automatically saves your current placein a text. The catalogue allows you to browse through titles and search based on autor or title.

Getting the Software

This is fairly easy to do, but does require that you download some additional files.

Get the Guten source here.
Get most current SQLObject deb here. Installing Double-click on the python2.4-sqlobject_0.6.1-1_all.deb file that you downloaded, it will give you a warning about the version, but just click on close and then install the package. Now, go to a terminal, and run sudo apt-get python-sqlite

Once that is installed, go back to your desktop and double-click on the guten-0.3.tar.bz2 file that you downloaded. Once it opens in the archive manager, extract it somewhere that will be easy to get to in the terminal. Now, go back to your terminal and get to the folder where you extracted guten. once you are there type:

sudo python install
Once that is done, you should be able to run guten.
