how i got Linaxepad to work in ubuntu 14.04


i have now installed successfully, linaxepad on two seperate computers, one dual core and one quadcore 64bit running Kubuntu 14.04

I found the pdf's outdated, and alot of websites outdated...and lots of errors... however, here goes...

Download --- LinAXEpad for Linux (v1.5.0 for x386 with GTK2.8+) (from this site to a folder)

extract in folder (right click -extract-extract here)

you should get 4 folders and one file

linaxepad libs

linaxepad executable
now, get into root

zx80@zx80-desktop:~/Desktop/linaxepad$ su -
do the following:
sudo apt-get update

(tells the GTK info)
dpkg -l libgtk* | grep -e '^i' | grep -e 'libgtk-*[0-9]'

(tells library location & memory addresss)
ldd LinAXEpad

(installs librarys)
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libcairo2:i386 libpango1.0-0:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 libstdc++6:i386

(final update)
sudo apt-get update

now go into your directory where linaxepad is

right click on the file LinAXEpad - actions - run in konsole

you can also double click on the file, it should now work

if you get the

(unresolvable error)
(LinAXEpad:3838): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "oxygen-gtk",

Don't worry about this error... it's meaningless (more or less).
I wish you all good luck!
Hi xfred,

It also works for Debian Jessie. Instructions (in french, but mostly just a list of commands) to get the usb cable working can be found here

I had no errors.
