EiffelStudio Installation

Once you have installed Ubuntu, you need to make sure you have the following packages installed. This will let you compile EiffelStudio projects and also build an EiffelStudio delivery.

  • C compiler
sudo apt-get install gcc g++ make
  • Subversion
sudo apt-get install subversion
  • GTK
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libxtst-dev
  • Building deliveries
sudo apt-get install build-essential devscripts debhelper fakeroot lintian rpm
  • Various utilities
sudo apt-get install pax mkisofs

sudo apt-get install portmap nis nfs-common
