Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 Package available for download


A deb package of jpdfbookmarks for Ubuntu 8.04 is now ready for download at the download page. It offers a better integration then the general Linux installer in the Ubuntu environment. It also install the man page for the program that you can access as usual with:

man jpdfbookmarks


If you are an Ubuntu user you should choose this method of installation, if you already installed the program with the general Linux installer, uninstall it using the uninstall program in the installation directory, the command should be something like:

sudo /usr/local/lib/jpdfbookmarks/uninstall

then download the .deb file and double click it to install or use the command:

sudo dpkg -i jpdfbookmarks_1.2.1ubuntu0_all.deb

The package depends on a java runtime environment version 5 or later, so to install the package you first need to have installed one of sun-java6-bin, sun-java5-jre or openjdk-6-jre packages, anyway you can just try to install and the package manager will tell you if dependencies are satisfied.

Great job on the program! I could be wrong, but I think you're releasing this program in an illegal manner. You used the Tango Project icons and according to their FAQ ( http://tango.freedesktop.org/Frequently_Asked_Questions ) they released their icons under a Creative Commons Share-alike license. That means you would have to do the same: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/

Just wanted to make sure you know that.

Thank you, I will contact someone at Tango Project and will ask them how to distribute the icons.

I have updated all packages with a modified license file that clearly states all icons from tango project and my modified icons are released under Creative Commons Share-alike license.
