how do I download latest version of Scibuntu with Ubuntu 8.04 LTS?

Latest versions of Scibutu reportedly reside at However, dowload instructions do not work. I contacted the project leader and he replied in Swedish, but I dobn't think he told me how to do the download. I went to the Scibuntu support forum and someone else had posted same problem last year and there was no reply to that posting.

Scibuntu reportedly contains chemistry and biochemistry related programs.

Go to the Download -> Browse All Files page of scibuntu at SourceForge.

Click on the scibuntu041-beta link.

It takes you to the Downloading page, and it should start downloading. (It didn't do it for me either.)

So look for this paragraph and click its link:
Your download should begin shortly. If you are experiencing problems with the download please use this direct link.
When I did it, I large shell script opened in the window instead of downloading. Apparently that's the whole program. You should be able to right click on the link and do Save Link As.
