Is it right that 14.04 does not have the haskell platform avaible by the software center.

Do I need to compile it by source or is there anothe way to make this work ?



These distributions offer the Haskell Platform in their package repositories. You can easily install the Haskell Platform through your distribution's native package manager.

  • Ubuntu
  • ...

Source: http://www.haskell.org/platform/linux.html

Enable universe repository, then

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install haskell-platform

I had a problem using sudo apt-get install haskell-platform, then I just used

sudo apt-get install  libglew-dev libcheese7 libcheese-gtk23 libclutter- gst-2.0-0 libcogl15 libclutter-gtk-1.0-0 libclutter-1.0-0  xserver-xorg-input-all haskell-platform

And the problem was solved. (source)
