Yeah, I'd like to know if there's going to be a "PPA" (personal package archive) for memaker up soon.

The best way to get ahold of the software right now (as far as I know) is to pull it out of bzr and run it manually. Install the bzr and python-lxml packages and do
bzr pull http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~encompass/memaker/trunk memaker
cd memaker/src
python umaker.py

The above does not work for me:

wolfger@bravo:~/code$ bzr pull http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~encompass/memaker/trunk memaker
bzr: ERROR: extra argument to command pull: memaker

sorry, I meant:
bzr checkout http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~encompass/memaker/trunk memaker

what about the icons?

Michael R. Head (burner) said : #6

I've submitted a bug about that: https://bugs.launchpad.net/memaker/+bug/151436

umaker.py no longer appears in the src directory. What is the install procedure now?

Michael R. Head (burner) said : #8

I run it like so:

bzr checkout http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~encompass/memaker/trunk memaker
cd memaker/src
python memaker.py

(in my branch, I've made memaker.py executable)

It's not really a web URL. That's a URL for bazaar. A browser won't know what to do with it. Just run the commands suggested and you should be good to go.

Somehow things like this /always/ go wrong for me.
If it's not a .deb, I simply can't do anything with it, always some new problem.

...but I look forward to using this on Intrepid.

Can you help with this problem?
