VisTrails on Ubuntu Edgy

We have support for VisTrails on Ubuntu Edgy for the amd64 and i386 architectures. To install VisTrails, start Synaptic (the package manager) Click on Settings -> Repositories:

Then click on the third-party tab:

Click on Add, and paste the following line to the field:

deb http://vgc.sci.utah.edu/ubuntu edgy main

Close the Settings window, and now a dialog will inform you that the repositories changed. This is expected. It will tell you to click "reload". Do so.

Now VisTrails will be available for install. Click on the Search button, type vistrails:


Now right-click on the vistrails line and Click on "Mark for Installation".


The box on the left of the line should now be checked. Click on the Apply button on top. There will be a warning about unauthenticated packages. We're currently working on having a digital signature for all VGC packages, but this is currently unimplemented. Simply click on Mark. This will take you back to the original window. Click on Apply again, and then on Apply on the "Summary". A series of windows showing the download and installation progress will be displayed. At the end, simply close the Synaptic Package Manager, and now VisTrails is available on a terminal, on /usr/local/bin/vistrails.
