Before doing anything you have to run a package install command to install a lot of packages which are available in Ubuntu 13.10:

sudo apt-get install comerr-dev krb5-multidev libaudio-dev libcups2-dev libexpat1-dev libfontconfig1-dev libfreetype6-dev libgcrypt11-dev libgnutls-dev libgnutls-openssl27 libgnutls26 libgnutlsxx27 libgpg-error-dev libgssrpc4 libjpeg-dev libjpeg-turbo8-dev libjpeg8-dev libkadm5clnt-mit8 libkadm5srv-mit8 libkdb5-6 libkrb5-dev liblcms1-dev libmng-dev libp11-kit-dev libtasn1-3-dev libxcursor-dev libxft-dev libxi-dev libxinerama-dev libxmu-dev libxmu-headers libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev x11proto-randr-dev x11proto-render-dev x11proto-xinerama-dev bwidget gsm-utils libbfb0 libgsmme1c2a libmulticobex1 libobexftp0 obexfs obexftp obextool openobex-apps syncevolution tcllib tklib 

Then install these packages:


(and probably other packages) all available in (select precise 12.04 packages always).

Then you may be able to install




Then in terminal run this command:

sudo nokuntusp.gambas

To get a window like this: enter image description here

With most functionalities disabled at least in initial encounters, and with nokia x3 mobile hard-set connected with usb. Not so interesting and useful it seemed to me.

probably you have upgraded to 14.04 or a normal source is missing. btw, I recommend to forget this so badly developed software. However it may be because the deveoper has chosen gambas, – user126106 Apr 27 '14 at 16:12
Is there any other software like this? – Faisal Haq Salafi Apr 29 '14 at 13:13
@FaisalHaqSalafi: Wammu partially works for Nokia Phone. However it seems there's not a complete alternative. – user126106 Apr 29 '14 at 14:36

According to the SourceForge page, the development of Nokuntu has stopped, so it was newer updated to use the Gambas 3 runtime.

As the deprecated Gambas 2 runtime is not included anymore in Ubuntu 13.04 and above, the best option is to just install the package from 12.10. You can download the right package for your architecture from Launchpad and install it on your system.
