Installing Zhone on Ubuntu

WARNING: Adding those repositories (or the zhone installation?) may lead to problems on a Kubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron.

Many packages update are done at the same time (200+ changes), and something break the upgrade. Removing repositories and launching an "apt-get -f install" fix the problem.


  • Add this to your /etc/apt/sources.lst :
deb http://pkg-fso.alioth.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://pkg-fso.alioth.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ experimental main
deb http://e17.dunnewind.net/ubuntu hardy e17
  • Execute:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install zhone
  • remove this from your /etc/apt/sources.lst
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ experimental main
  • Now you can finally execute:
zhone

Developing Zhone

Developing ideas

  • Maybe we should run Zphone all the time in background with higher scheduler priority? It won't consume too much ram and will give user impression of almost instant UI response in case of call. I think we should also use this approach for other core functions, if you want to play Duke Nuken you accept can waiting few seconds but in case of sms, calls, clock is not acceptable and have to be instant.
