Hi Stewart,

Open a terminal window and become root using the 'su' command.

First of all, you need to uninstall your ubuntu xlog package by typing
'apt-get remove xlog' in a terminal. You don't want conflicting xlog

Next, install the packages needed for building xlog: 'apt-get install
build-essential libgtk2.0-dev libhamlib-dev'.

As a normal user unpack the xlog source tree (the tarball) somwhere in
your home directory: 'tar xvzf xlog-1.8.1.tar.gz' and follow the
instructions in the INSTALL file, unpacked in xlog-1.8.1/INSTALL.
