My favorite old calendaring software package is called ical, but it's got nothing to do with Apple. It's an old tcl/tk program, and I've discussed its installation many times before.
For whatever reason, I hadn't been able to run ical under Ubuntu Feisty. Today I decided to try, once again, to do something about it. A bit of Googling found that there's a bugfix version of ical, 2.3.2. I downloaded that, then followed the directions for creating a proper makefile:
$ tar xvf ical-2.3.2.tar.gz $ cd ical-2.3.2 $ ./configure --with-tclconfig=/usr/lib/tcl8.4 \ --with-tkconfig=/usr/lib/tk8.4 \ --with-tclhdir=/usr/include/tcl8.4 \ --with-tkhdir=/usr/include/tcl8.4 $ make $ sudo make install
Which puts the program in /usr/local/bin. Of course, you have to have the Tcl and Tk packages and -dev files (headers) installed:
$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/tcl8.4 tcl8.4, tcl8.4-dev: /usr/lib/tcl8.4 $ dpkg -S /usr/lib/tk8.4 tk8.4, tk8.4-dev: /usr/lib/tk8.4 $ dpkg -S /usr/include/tcl8.4 tcl8.4-dev, expect-dev, tk8.4-dev: /usr/include/tcl8.4
So at the very least you'll need tcl8.4, tk8.4, tcl8.4-dev and tk8.4-dev.
And so, once again, I have my favorite calendering program.
