Why is Kompozer no longer in the repositories? Can any one suggest a new alternative (other than BlueFish) ?
Kompozer was removed from the repository as it is no longer being maintained by its maintainer in the upstream(
As for your second question, a suitable alternative for it would be Bluegriffon.
This is what it looks like:
To install it do the following steps:
- Download the installer.
- Right click on the Installer file. Pick the "Permissions" tab and
Allow executing file as programcheckbox. (For security reasons, most files aren't executable by default.)
- Double-click on the installer file, and the GUI to install BlueGriffon will start.
About Bluegriffon, from its website:
BlueGriffon is a new WYSIWYG content editor for the World Wide Web. Powered by Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox, it's a modern and robust solution to edit Web pages in conformance to the latest Web Standards.
Partially reference: https://askubuntu.com/a/136849/11932
The latest bluegriffon can also be installed from the getdeb repository, by doing the following steps:
wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add - sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu precise-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list' sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bluegriffon
Kompozer packages are removed from Quantal version but still you can download install the binaries or from source.
Here is the binaries/source link
Make sure you install the dependencies before installing the Kompozer .deb file
This question seems old, but here is an alternative solution to install Kompozer. It worked for me:
Download this: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/102977...buntu2_all.deb
Once it downloads, click on it, should open Ubuntu software center, click install.
Download from here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/quantal/+package/kompozer
You'll see a list of options based on hardware. I downloaded the i386 because I have an intel processor. Which is this file: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/102977...untu2_i386.deb
Once that is downloaded, same thing - click it, opens in software center, then install.
It will then install as any other and you should be good to go.
Here is another solution that I just found:
Unfortunately Kompozer isn't available from the Ubuntu 13.04 repositories, therefore you have to install it as follows:
cd ~/Downloads wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/k/kompozer/kompozer_0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/k/kompozer/kompozer-data_0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_all.deb sudo dpkg -i kompozer*.deb
