Installation on Ubuntu and other Debian Based Systems

Maitreya is available in standard Debian repositories and can be installed directly with aptitude etc. Please note that the symbol font is contained in the extra package fonts-maitreya. You need the font in order to display the sign and planet symbols.

Nevertheless the version in official repositories may be out of date.

The startup icon can be found in the application menu (Accessories).

Alternatively, open a console window, change to the download directory and enter the following commands.

sudo dpkg -i maitreya_xyz.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

The compilation of the sources can be done with configure and make.

The program depends upon wxWidgets 2.8 or 3.0 (headers and libraries), the corresponding packages must be installed. The fontconfig package is required, too.

The following command can be pasted to the console on Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install libwxbase2.8-0 libwxbase2.8-dev libwxgtk2.8-0 libwxgtk2.8-dev wx2.8-headers wx2.8-i18n libfontconfig1-dev
