Is it normal that the package gnome15 is not available for 13.04 ?

I tried to follow these instructions


but received the following error message when doing apt-get update: W: Failed to fetch http://www.gnome15.org/raring/./Packages 404 Not Found

Is there any workaround ?


I can not find any repo for Ubuntu 13.04

I suggest you contact the gnome15 team - https://launchpad.net/~gnome15-team

In the absence of a repository you would need to build from source.


From the above link (I suggest you read it for details)

bzr branch lp:~tanktarta/gnome15/stable gnome15

Read The Install Manual

Most of Gnome15 uses autotools. Run the commands below, or for a more detailed explanation you should read the Installation Manual.

cd gnome15


sudo make install
  • There is no configure file in the gnome15 folder. – NaomiJO Jun 9 '13 at 11:07

For what it's worth it, after having no news for several months from the developer, I created an "unofficial" website for gnome15 and have packaged it for the newly released versions of the supported distributions (Fedora 18, Debian 7, Ubuntu 13.04, openSUSE 12.3...).

I also published new unofficial versions of Gnome15 (currently 0.9.4) who fixes some issues that users have talked about in the forums.
