Debian package status for Thuban
(Note: Due to the quality assurance process of Debian, it takes some time until a new version enters Unstable and it takes even longer until it is accepted for Testing. Therefore you might not always get the most current release.)

Currently there is no package available. Thuban depends on some packages that are not part of Woody and therefore need to be backported. Information are welcome on successful backports and the applied backport packages.

A package for Mac OS X 10.3 or higher has been prepared by Lorenzo Moretti, you can download it from his site:

Thuban-OSX-Panther-1.0.1-3.dmg (17 MB)

Please first read the file ReadMe inside the package

Notes:

  • ac OS X 10.3 or higher is required (Python 2.3 is included in OS X 10.3)
  • Thuban is built in OS X and it's fast. It's a normal Mac app and it opens .thuban files with a simple double click and inside the ReadMe file you can see how to load the extensions.
  • Known Bugs:
    • Toolbar is not present but you can select the same commands from Map menu.
    • Sometime Legend window is locked: exit and reopen Thuban and after press the button "Eliminate from Panel" in the Legend window.
    • Thuban is opened with your language but if you have errors or problems with translation go to native language (english) in this way: change this folder name: Thuban 1.0.1.app/Contents/Resources/Python/site-packages/Resources/Locale in: Thuban 1.0.1.app/Contents/Resources/Python/site-packages/Resources/Locale_no

thuban-fhos-20041125.tar.gz (2.7MB): Thuban Version of PIROL project (Precision Farming als Instrument der interdisziplinären potentialorientierten Landnutzung). This version includes a Thuban 1.0.0 with some changes in the core code and a huge extension for various precision farming applications. The implementation and user interface is in german language.
It is planned to incorporate many of the general tools into Thuban main stream, but this will surely take a while. Any takers welcome.
The main author is Ole Rahn. He will proceed with the developements, see the (german) explanations in the archive.
