Cartes du Ciel


I've downloaded a TAR file and an RPM file for the planetarium program Cartes du Ciel. How do I instal either of these programs? New user using Mint 12.

well...Mint is Ubuntu, so RPM files only with alien. But, once you new to Mint my guess is that you just are trying to run rpm in a debiam based system. RPM equivalentes are .deb files here

anyway, you can install this software like this:

- open your terminal and type:
wget -q http://www.ap-i.net/pub/patrick_chevalley.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add

- now edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add this line at the end

deb http://www.ap-i.net/deb/ skychart/

- now update
apt-get update

- no search for the packages skychart and skychart-pictures in synaptic.

enjoy

Why not use that ?
