|+||**Ubuntu Install Notes**|
|+||Basic Stable Installation: |
|+||Use apt-get or synaptic to install a stable version from Debian repositories. (easy). Alternately download a binary .deb from Debian (thanks to Hamish) and you can just sudo dpkg -i <pcb-version.deb>.|
|+||Ubuntu doesn't include everything you need to compile software yourself. You'll want to install the 'build-essential' package using apt-get or synaptic to get the basic toolchain working on your machine. (Things like GCC are not inc. in Ubuntu). For a testing maturity level for PCB or geda, build-essential should be all you need.|
|+||Be careful as synaptic can do extreme damage to your system. Do be fooled into replacing libc6 because synaptic will want to remove all applications that depend on it -- meaning your entire system.|
|+||For the CVS version of PCB under Edgy, your ./configure step will require running with switch --enable-maintainer-mode. (more notes needed)|
