Monday, November 02, 2009For the past few months we have been working on improving the Ubuntu package of Scratch 1.4.1. We recently decided to release it using our own Personal Package Archive (PPA) on Launchpad so that people can simply add it to their sources and install it via Synaptic (as most other Ubuntu applications). The package is also available for download from our Linux documentation page.
We have tested this package on Ubuntu 9.04 and the recently released 9.10. Most features work just like they do on Windows and Mac OS, even the webcam and the PicoBoard!
There are still some issues that we hope to get ironed out in the future. Of course, if you are an experienced Linux hacker and would like to help us in this effort or in packaging for other distros please contact us at email@example.com!
Many thanks to Amos Blanton, Derek O'Connell and John Maloney for all their work.
