  1. Wie geil, endlich funktioniert das!
    Viel suchen, viele verschiedene Wege, die alle nichts taugen.
    Und dann das hier, so einfach und es geht!

  2. aku pake ubuntu 10.10 alpha 3, untuk menginstall gyachi, semua jurus2 di atas sudah aku ikuti, tapi tetap juga tak bisa. Di synaptic package manager, begitu mau install gyachi muncul keterangan sbb; gyachi:
    Depends: libgtkhtml2-0 (>=2.11.1) but it is not installable

    Gimana neh?

  3. Does not work. Loell’s PPA does not have gyachi-data, and this PPA does not have Gyachi. Seems to work fine for everyone else though. Rawr.
