How to install Quick 'n Easy Web Builder on Linux?

Post by Pablo » Tue Mar 13, 2012 7:56 am

There is currently no installer for the Linux version. Just extract all to a folder of your choice.
1) Unzip all files to a folder of your choice.
2) Double click qnewb (executable)

If the software does not start then your system may be missing the following package:
Microsoft TrueType Core Fonts
These fonts are a requirement because they are basis for all websites (so called web safe fonts, see also the manual).

To install them, open up your Synaptic Package Manager (System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager). Search for 'Microsoft core fonts'.
Check the box beside it and select Mark for Installation. Click Apply at the menubar to install the fonts package.

If you are running a 64 bits version of Linux then you should also install 'ia32-libs' and/or the 'libgtk2.0-0:i386' package.
To install the libgtk2.0-0:i386 package please use:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386
in a terminal session.

More details:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/libgtk2.0-common

or

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Run Quick 'n Easy Web Builder on Fedora:

Code: Select all

sudo yum install libpng12.so.0

sudo yum install cabextract

sudo rpm -i http://sourceforge.net/projects/mscorefonts2/files/rpms/msttcore-fonts-installer-2.2-1.noarch.rpm
'libpng12.so.0' is required for the graphics
'cabextract' is required to be able to run 'rpm'
'msttcore-fonts-installer-2.2-1.noarch.rpm' installs web safe fonts.

For Debian/Ubuntu based versions of Linux you can now download a .deb package:

sudo dpkg --install quick-n-easy-web-builder-2_x.x.x_i386.deb
where x.x.x is the version number.

The application will be installed in the Applications folder (usr/share/applications)

If you get the following message...
./qnewb: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
... then try these commands:
sudo dpkg -i libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb
or
sudo dpkg -i libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
