How To Install Kiba-Dock SVN

So, I've been very busy at school, but since people have asked, here is a short howto for Kiba-Dock. I hear the AWN instructions are easier to find...

First, install Subversion to download the source code:

sudo apt-get install subversion

Then visit this page, and install the dependencies (using Synaptic Package Manager, and including the names with -dev).

run:

svn co https://kibadock.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/kibadock/trunk/ kiba


and then:

ls


and then take a look at the list. There should be about five blue items. You'll want to go into each of these with the cd command:

cd akamaru

for example. After you cd into it, run:

./autogen.sh
make
sudo make install


and then when those commands are done, run:

cd ../insert_next_directory_name_here

and do the three commands again.

Once all of that is finished, you should be able to launch kiba-dock from your menu. Good luck!

How about renaming it to " How to .... in a .deb based distro"?
