    Great job! Installs Bluegriffon on my 14.04 😉

  2. Godber says:

    Yes. I could install bluegriffon with this article. But it crashes under Kubuntu 14.04 as soon as I try to pull down a menu.
    But when I start it as root from a konsole (terminal) by typing: ./bluegriffon, it works normally.
    Why that? Any trouble with file-rights?

    Thanks for the tutorial (this one really worked out). But I have another problem, I’m leaving windows and simultaneously exploring ubuntu so I’m still used to the install routines which create icons at the end. My question is, now that I have this tool installed, how can I make it run?

    Just wanted to take a minute or two of the hour or two you saved me to say, “Thank you for publishing such a complete and accurate tutorial.” Little documentation w/in the archive, or the source Website … only typing req’d, once arriving here? “terminal” ~;-)
