Hoy to install or ejecute puzzlebox?
Hello,

I have download the puzzlebox_brainstorms-0.8.0-1.noarch.rpm file, but dont know how to make it works on ubuntu.

I already install alien to convert it un to .deb package but when i execute sudo alien .rpm file, alien give me this error:

Package build failed; could not run generated debian/rules file.

Then i have try to exec manually but dont have idea wich is the file to exect or install the package.

Can you give me some help?

Hello there and many thanks for writing.

We haven't produced a package for Ubuntu, so best bet is to run directly from source code and install any dependencies manually.


For example, here is a link to the last source code release:

http://brainstorms.puzzlebox.info/files/puzzlebox_brainstorms-0.8.0.tar.bz2


Extract the file using a command such as "tar xvjf puzzlebox_brainstorms-0.8.0.tar.bz2"


Change into the directory and try running:

"python brainstorms-local.py"


Most likely Python will complain about missing Python modules such as Simple JSON.

The process is roughly equivalent to running from source under Windows, directions for which are here:

http://brainstorms.puzzlebox.info/tracker/wiki/HowToRunFromSourceUnderWindows


You should be able to find most modules pre-packaged for Ubuntu, for anything else you can use easy_install for Python.


Please give the above a try and let us know if you continue to run into problems.

This message is your problem.

You need to manually install the jaraco.nxt module for Python.

The instructions for doing this under Windows are in the Brainstorms development tracker.

Roughly summarized you will need to do something along the lines of:

easy_install --always-unzip jaraco.nxt

Note: You will also need to install the simplejson module using the equivalent command
