You can expect the .deb by the 14th because the Oklahoma workshop is the 13-14th. There will be a new version by then assuming KIPR doesn't have another CBCv1 catastrophe.

No deb currently exists for KISS IDE 4. It is on the roadmap, but there are a huge amount of things that unfortunately must take precedence. I have posted build instructions in the related Fedora 17 post.

Austin,
I just followed Braden's instructions and have this running on Ubuntu. I had to tweak them a bit but they work.

For convenience they are:


sudo apt-get install g++ libqscintilla2-dev cmake codeblocks
git clone git://github.com/kipr/libkar.git
git clone git://github.com/kipr/pcompiler.git
git clone git://github.com/kipr/libkovanserial.git
git clone git://github.com/kipr/kiss.git
cd libkar
mkdir build
cd build/
cmake ..
sudo make install
cd ../../pcompiler/
mkdir build
cd build/
cmake ..
sudo make install
cd ../../libkovanserial/
mkdir build
cd build/
cmake ..
sudo make install
cd ../../kiss/
mkdir build
cd build/
cmake ..
sudo make install
./deploy/KISS

I know it's been a while on this thread, I'll start another one, if necessary, just let me know.

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04, and cannot upgrade until the next LTS. I've followed the instructions in this thread, but I get an error that the CMake 2.8.12 is required, but I'm running 2.8.7 (the cmake version that is in the archives.) I've looked at the CMake site, and 2.8.12 is not available for 12.04 at all.

Thank you very much!

CMake is the least of the worries (it can pretty easily be compiled from source). The challenge is QT 5, which is a bear to compile under ubuntu 12.04

You can get the source for CMake 2.8.12 and build it easily with

./bootstrap
make
make install

You will also need Qt 5. You can use the Linux package instead of building from source.

I had no trouble with cmake, and made it through most of the KISS install with no problems. However, I ran into a wall on Ubuntu 13.04 because KISS requires QT5 scintilla, which is not available in launchpad. It says it's available for 14.04LTS, so I might try that upgrade, but I'd prefer to find a way to do it with my current OS.

Did you end up building QT5 from source?
