11.10 Oneiric

Canonical decided to remove the xulrunner-1.9.2 in Oneiric and further versions. That is the reason why we do not provide a kiwix package for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric. We are working to provide a substainable solution but here is a workaround for the meantime.

For i386:

wget -c http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/universe/x/xulrunner-1.9.2/xulrunner-1.9.2_1.9.2.17+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
wget -c https://launchpad.net/~kiwixteam/+archive/ppa/+files/kiwix_0.9-beta5-0%7Enatty_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i kiwix_0.9-beta5-0~natty_i386.deb xulrunner-1.9.2_1.9.2.17+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

For amd64:

wget -c http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/universe/x/xulrunner-1.9.2/xulrunner-1.9.2_1.9.2.17+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
wget -c https://launchpad.net/~kiwixteam/+archive/ppa/+files/kiwix_0.9-beta5-0%7Enatty_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i kiwix_0.9-beta5-0~natty_amd64.deb xulrunner-1.9.2_1.9.2.17+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

12.04

Please use the staticly compiled version (see homepage).
