I want to read my .bok file from maktaba shamela in Ubuntu 12.04. I tried install it by typing:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sabily.team/ppa
sudo apt-get update

And then I installed it. But then showed:

E: unable locate thwab package.

And I tried other way, dowloading thwab-lib_1.1.2.orig.tar.gz.

But I don't know how to install thwab-lib_1.1.2.orig.tar.gz in Ubuntu. What can I do?

After the 2 commands I went to USC and it is there (mind you: I SEARCHED for thwab and it shows thawab!!):

enter image description here

So you probably need to do:

sudo apt-get install thawab

No thwab in the USC ....

Looking at the contents of the PPA: https://launchpad.net/~sabily.team/+archive/ppa/+index?batch=75&memo=75&start=75

Found a DEB Installer for thwab here: https://launchpad.net/~sabily.team/+archive/ppa/+sourcepub/1415835/+listing-archive-extra

So download that and install the DEB by clicking it and have USC handle it.

Is this related to what version is being run? Does the PPA provide a package for 12.04? Also, does spelling have to do with it. Your USC screenshot shows it as thawab but the questions says thwab. –  Eliah Kagan Feb 16 '13 at 14:47
    
@Eliah kagan: both are same package, It is just a packaging issue :) –  Tachyons Feb 16 '13 at 15:13
    
seems like a packaging issue indeed. Or Thawab is the new Twab. –  Rinzwind Feb 16 '13 at 16:52
