How to add "Places" module?
January 20, 2011 01:26PM
I would like to learn to add a module that is not in the elive repository. There are several interesting ones on the Exchange site, and I have seen the Places module working on PCLOS. So I downloaded it:


But I don't know what to do with it eyepoping

Do I have to compile it? If so, how? The eLive User Guide talks about "make-deb compile", but that doesn't seem to exist in Topaz.

Anybody know how to install a module from svn?

I tried autogen.sh, but this is what I got:

[jeff ~/places]$ ./autogen.sh
Running autopoint...
autopoint: *** cvs program not found
autopoint: *** Stop.
Running aclocal...
./autogen.sh: line 9: aclocal: command not foun

So, there's a lot I don't know about compiling packages in Debian.

Can you help?

what version of elive are you running, places is already on my menu in the Topaz version.

I'd also like to install it, I'm on the last unstable version zeitgeist.

How can I do that?

Is it an .edj file? I used to place modules in my $HOME/.e/e/modules, and when I go to the menu to add or enable it, the new module would be listed.
