In previous Ubuntu version I used Kodos extensively. But the package has been dropped in 12.10.
It's a neat regular expression testing tool. It's hard to find an alternative that is not Windows only (or Air, or uses action script which bails on more complicated RegEx, or works in Wine - well kinda, but not really..., etc.).
So I tried to install Kodos from source, which seems to work (download sourceball and
setup.py) but it won't run because of missing PyQT dependencies (that I can't manage to fulfill with anything install-able trough standard packages). I then tried to install PyQT manually (which seems to require manual install of SIP and QT too) and instead of
pip I have to use
qmake. It throws error after error at me. I tried to overcome one after another for over an hour but no luck.
It even managed to break Calibre and Music Brains Picard. So I purged all the stuff, reinstalled
python-qt4 from the standard packages and gave up.
Has anyone managed to get Kodos running on 12.10? Or any hints on how to do it?
