If you are using a platform other than a i386, you will need to compile my Emacs packages yourself. So, here a simple guide how to do this.
- First, make sure you have the source repository enabled, by adding
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/avassalotti/ubuntu gutsy mainto your
- Install the build-dependencies and some packaging tools:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get build-dep emacs-snapshot sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev devscripts fakeroot emacsen-common
- Download the source package and compile it with:
fakeroot apt-get --compile source emacs-snapshot
- Finally, install the newly built packages:
sudo dpkg -i emacs-snapshot*.deb
Note, this final step may fail if you have an older version of the package already installed. If it is the case, just do it again.
