[Csnd] new install - Csound manual, CsoundQT

How is it recommended to install the Csound Manual ?
I am now on Linux Ubuntu 20.04, AMD64/i586.

Is it the Build instructions here, GitHub - csound/manual: Csound Reference Manual (English)

The reason I ask, is the slightly complicated CsoundQT build instructions
here; CsoundQt/BUILDING.md at master · CsoundQt/CsoundQt · GitHub

says under 'Notes for Linux Builds'
..
/usr/share/doc/csound-manual/html/ and /usr/share/doc/csound-doc/html/
If you used a package manager to install the Csound manual, it should be there.

Is the Csound Manual (csound-doc) available by apt-get the current or latest?

apt search csound
..
csound-doc/jammy,jammy 1:6.16.0~dfsg-1 all

Is the CsoundQT shown by apt search the current version?
..
csoundqt/jammy 0.9.8.1~dfsg0-1build1 amd64

I'm assuming for Jack and perhaps Python I may have to build CsoundQT.
(Still can't work Jack, so maybe this time).

Good news is that Csound6 built and installed first time no problem.
Blue setup and runs first time no problem.
Legacy Common Music now runs under Emacs-Slime and sbcl.

Thank you to the Csound community. Wonderful.

Hi,

Yes, CsoundQt 0.9.8.1 is the last officially released version and you should be able to install it with $ apt install csoundqt

You should be able to install csound-doc also with apt

Or if you download Csound manual (that is probably newer version that the one provided by distribution), you can just copy the html fodler of it (perhaps you need to make the directory first)

/usr/share/doc/csound-doc/

There is also an experimental CsoundQt AppImage https://tarmo.uuu.ee/varia/failid/cs/CsoundQt/CsoundQt-0.9.8.2-x86_64%2BCsound-6.14.0.AppImage

  • just download, make it executable and off you go. It includes Csound 6.14 though. I really hope to get to updating it soon…

and basically it does not matter wherever you put the csound manual. you can just download from Releases · csound/manual · GitHub, undpack in anywhere and tell csoundqt in Configuration > Environment > Html Doc Directory about the location.

well "undpack in" = unpack it ...

Thank you to Tarmo and Joachim.

The CsoundQt AppImage works well for me on Ubuntu 20.04.

I didn’t proceed with the apt install for CsoundQT, as it wanted to load
packages of code I believe to be already there, I just didn’t want to risk it.
Csound 6.17 has been built and is already there.

Indeed with fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04, apt search couldn’t find csound-doc
and had this effect below for CsoundQT

While my repositories include source code, and the Csound 6.17 build well,
it seems I need to add either further repositories or Ubuntu release alias, if
I am to load csoundQT or Csound-doc using apt

Loading packages via Synaptic is an option, but on my new installation I am hesitant.

All is well. Thank you again.

$ sudo apt install csoundqt
