EKD SOURCES INSTALLATION UNDER LINUX (hide)
Since release 1.2 it is possible to install EKD on the hard disk (the sources). This install is made as an administrator (you have to enter your main password). With the sources, you can install EKD on all the Linux distrubutions.
First of all, we have to say that this script can not only install EKD, but it can also update it (when a new version is available) and remove it if you need to do it.
In order to proceed to start the script, you have to go in the directory where you have EKD, to do this open the command-line prompt and write the path going to the EKD directory (cd /home/user/full/path/ekd), then …
On a distrubution not using sudo, write …
Enter your administrator password, then …
… and follow the procedure which is shown … .
On a distribution using sudo, write …
sudo python install_ekd_linux_admin.py
Enter your administrator password … and follow the procedure which is shown … .
Here’s the script of the welcome screen (images in french):
As you see, to install EKD you only need to write 1 on the numeric keypad … and this is going to be made easily in a few time.
Once you do the install, EKD can be started by writing (simply) ekd in a command-line prompt and/or by clicking on Multimedia > EKD.
In the same way, to update EKD, you only have to write 1 on the numeric keypad. To update it as administrator, the script runs exactly as if you were doing the first installation.
This time to remove EKD, you have to write 2 on the numerci keypad (all the files and directories installed as for the short cuts) are going to be erased. There will be no sign of the installation of EKD.
If an error occurs when you’re installing, updating or removing the program, an error message appears (and this is for any situation).
Imagine, for instance, that you already removed EKD as an administrator, but that you forgot it, well, the script is going ti tell you (as it is shown in the image below):
