Installation in Ubuntu 9.10

After downloading the latest version of Toped from its website , all you need to do is untar the .tar.gz and read the INSTALL file within the directory.

I found that there were a couple of packages missing after running the ./configure and the make. These are:

bison: you can get it from apt-get install bison
libwxgtk2.8: you can get if from apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev

Also, you’ll need the latest wxWidgets and wxPython. This can be done from the repos by adding the following lines into the /etc/apt/source.list: (this is for Karmic)

# wxWidgets/wxPython repository at deb main deb-src karmic-wx main

and then run:

sudo apt-get update

You can now use your favorite package selection tool to install or upgrade the wxWidgets and wxPython packages. Here’s how to do it with apt-get:

sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8 python-wxtools wx2.8-i18n

This last method didn’t work for me, in fact, I ended up downloading the latest wxWidgets from its website, and then compiled it with the following:

sudo ./configure –with-gtk –with-opengl
sudo make
sudo make install

Once you have the wxWidgets and all the other extra packages, you should be all set to get into Toped installation.
Just, untar the file you downloaded from Toped webpage, and run

sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install

After this, toped should be installed and you can access it thru the terminal by typing:

    The aim of the blog is good. But you may have to clean up the post – I mean write it a bit professionally, in order, & with images. For example, the above guide to install toped on ubuntu may have been more clear and step by step. Ultimately your aim is to teach the needed on how to install on ubuntu. If that aim is not met, there is no use. Could you please go in a bit more clearer and add a few images.
