Hello Dan,

This was on Ubuntu 13.10.
Good point about packages moving around;  let me pause here try this out on 12.04.

Let's see about getting a desktop up and running...

Hi Patryk,

Which version of ubuntu? (12.04, 13.10?)

I ask because ubuntu packages, imvho, tend to shift around in terms of
their names and what they can do. (That's my impression anyway, although
i have not kept any records :( )

Thanks for documenting the process and hope you succeed and it becomes
easy to install an Etoile desktop system. (Again, imvvho, what gnustep
needs is a desktop.)


However, PopplerKit seems to be having some major issues.
Is there some way to build Etoile without PopplerKit? PopplerKit seems
woefully out of date... and I see email discussions from Feb 2013 with no
resolution on how to get it working.
Thank you,
