How to install BlueGriffon editor WYSIWYG on Ubuntu

BlueGriffon is a new WYSIWYG content editor for the World Wide Web. Powered by Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox 4, it’s a modern and robust solution to edit Web pages in conformance to the latest Web Standards.

BlueGriffon can create and edit all HTML 4, XHTML 1 and HTML 5 (both HTML and XML serializations) documents.

BlueGriffon has an exceptional CSS support. Its heart being Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox 4, BlueGriffon offers all you need to deal with the latest features of CSS 3.

BlueGriffon includes (with permission) the popular SVG editor. SVG Edit and you can then draw vectorial graphics from within BlueGriffon to embed them into your documents.

If you want to install BlueGriffon latest version on Ubuntu, you have to download debian package from this page.

This page contain x86 debian package, sources, an installer script and a Windows installer.

To install debian package on Ubuntu with i386 architecture you have to execute:

sudo dpkg -i BlueGriffon*

If you have a amd64 architecture, it’s not avaible a package for it, but you can install the same package executing:

sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture BlueGriffon*

I’ve noticed that this debian package does not create the executable into /usr/bin/ and a launcher into system menu.

Therefore we can create a symlink by running:

sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/bluegriffon/bluegriffon /usr/bin/bluegriffon

So we can then add the launcher with the icon to your system menu.

    This does not work. At the end, I get this:

    Need to get 37.6 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 76.1 MB of additional disk space will be used.
    Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

    If I put in y or Y or just hit enter, it aborts. Seems impossible.
