I tried to install xlog 1.8.1 from tar but can not find it. I still show 1.6.2 installed. synaptic shows that 1.6.2 is the latest version and the
version installed. I did the tar install from Desktop. I am running
UBUNTU and still a linux novice.
Any help will be appreciated.

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.

Since there is by default no login root user in Ubuntu, you need to use sudo to assume the role of the root user. In the terminal window, type 'sudo apt-get remove xlog'. Also use sudo for any system activities, including the 'make install' step when compiling from a tarball.

Bob, N7XY
