Install the Gnoetry 0.2 on Xubuntu VirtualBox Appliance
In an effort to spread the good news of Gnoetry more easily to the masses of Mac and Windows users, I’ve taken on the project this year to prepare an alternative method of getting Gnoetry up and running with minimal obstacles. For Ubuntu or Debian users, things have been simplified now by using git to clone michel-slm’s bug-fix branch of the Gnoetry source files from GitHub, installing a few dependencies and building from the included Makefile (I’ll put together a short set of instructions for that process later this summer). For those not interested in installing Linux on their computers, there is now an alternative.
I have put together an Xubuntu virtual machine which has Gnoetry 0.2 already installed and ready to launch from an icon on the desktop. VirtualBox allows for virtual machines to be exported and shared as “appliances.” You can download the VirtualBox appliance file (2.3 GB) and the PDF installation guide from my main website, here:
Also included is a user manual for Gnoetry 0.2. Aside from the simple installation of Oracle VirtualBox, an extension pack, and the appliance itself, the only tricky part is optimizing the virtual machine for you system. A complete guide through this process is included in the installation guide.
Test it out yourselves and let me know how it works.
