Yes, but in that case you get Spyder version 1, not 2.
>> I'm not an expert,
Neither I am, but I had not had any issues with Spyder v.1/v.2
installation on Ubuntu 10.10. So please be relaxed and sure that you
can easily do it. You should follow these directions as was already
In case you need, let us go over the instructions (Spyder-v2):
* install Mercurial, a simple and powerful source control
management tool [You should issue this at the command line: "sudo
apt-get install mercurial"]
Now you have a software called Mercurial that can be used to pull
source code from some online repository. Then you use this program to
get the code for Spyder:
* clone Spyder v2.x source code repository: "hg clone
https://spyderlib.googlecode.com/hg/ spyderlib" [again, issue this in
the command line]
Now that you have Spyder code on your own machine, you should go to
the Spyder directory in which the file "setup.py" is located. This is
a Python file that installs Spyder once you execute it. So, please
execute it by entering the command in the parantheses, again in the
* if you have installed Spyder (python setup.py install), it's already done
I suspect you do not have experience with the command line at all. If
this is the case you will need these system commands:
"pwd": Print Working Directory
"ls" : LiSt the contents of the working directory
"cd /path/to/the/destination/directory" Change (the working) Directory
to the indicated one
Please inform us about the result.
