Following a question I raised a few weeks back, I would like to install tracker and see how it works with natty. The latest stable release of metatracker is 0.10.10, but unfortunately, only version 0.8.17 can be found packaged. Does anyone know how can I install tracker from source, and if anybody has already tried it, please let me know how well does it work with natty.

You can install Tracker 0.9.26 from their PPA. There is also a stable PPA, but there's nothing for 11.04 there yet.

Thanks for the response, but if you look on the right (of the page), it seems that this latest upload to the PPA even fails to build... – S B May 3 '11 at 12:26
You are right, indeed. I installed _something_from there, but was stumped as to how to start the thing (running Unity)... – user15989 May 6 '11 at 2:38
