Re: Install KiCad on non Ubuntu distros - best way?


> how about an install script for all linux distro? 

"all"  :)

Must we really make "all" linux distros our problem?
I run linux on a PLC, and oh, my Android cell phone.

The build and install procedure for most contemporary desktop linux distros will have
these  basic steps in common:

install prerequisites
checkout kicad source using bzr
build it using Cmake
install it using CMake

checkout kicad.library using bzr
install it using CMake

The last two steps can be replaced with a tar file procedure.

So really the main variance is the very first step.  If you can find a way to abstract
that, then the rest is common.
